Just Magnolia Challenge week 4.........................



Good Morning,
I hope everyone is good and looking forward to the weekend!
It is time for a new challenge at Just Magnolia we are on week 4 and the theme this week is In Stitches. I have hand stitched my background card around my image and faux stitched my spotty paper. I have coloured my image with distress inks and added some stickles for some sprinkly spronkly. I have distressed my background and paper with milled lavender, tattered rose and frayed burlap. It would be wonderful if you would join us as I just love visiting you all and seeing your wonderful creations. For inspiration do go and visit the other girls blogs on the design team as their cards are just to die for.
I have been sent this award from the amazingly talented Hege. Thank you so much Hege I am so delighted to have received this from you big hugs.

Thank you so very much for looking and for any comments you may leave they so warm my heart! Have a fabulous weekend!
love
