Unwrapping Presents......

Hello,

Hope you are all well and having a wonderful weekend.

Here is a card using a Magnolia image I know shock horror!


Another shock I have coloured this little sweetie in with distress ink pads. The background is distressed with weathered wood and all edges are walnut stain. The larger flowers I received from the sweet and gorgeous Tab. The roses are prima. I have glimmer misted these with Old Lace. The leaves and swirls are Quickutz. The stickles are Star Dust on the floor and around the edge of the paper Silver Ice. I have used a sakura clear stardust pen on the letters and leaves.


Thank you so much for looking and have a wonderful weekend. I have my delicious family coming for lunch on Sunday!

love
