Mini World Magnolia....


I hope that you have had a good week and are well.

I have made an easel card using the nesties circle dies. I have masked a Mini Magnolia Tilda onto the mini Magnolia Tea Cup. So perfect when you want to make a smaller card to send to say hello.

I have used distress ink pads for colouring. The papers and details on my card I have distressed with brushed corduroy. 

The swirl is a Magnolia Doohickey die and the leaves are punched using an EK Success punch. The stickles are star dust and silver. 

Thank you so much for your visit and I wish you a great weekend!

It is my daughter's wedding anniversary tomorrow. So I will be babysitting so they can have a special day just the two of them :)
