The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge - Birthday.........

Hello,

We the Magnolia Design Team are today very excited, as today is the first day of our very first challenge TOMIC!

We are celebrating a very special birthday. Our very own Magnolia Mummy Pauline's.  Who designs all that is sweet and gorgeous at Magnolia. So, we thought what a great way for our challenge to start off is to have the theme Birthday. 

Here is my card that has been sent to Pauline in Sweden.


I have coloured my image with distress ink pads. The background has been distressed with pumice stone and the edge of this and all my papers have been edged with walnut stain.


I have decorated the inside too.


Here is the inside left. I have used Magnolia's Doohickey dies for the Tag, Butterfly and Lace border. The small flower is an EK Success punch.


Here is the inside right. The large flower and leaves are also Magnolia Doohickey dies.


I have also added stickle glue star dust and lightly sprayed the whole card with glimmer mist.


Thank you so very much for your visit. It would be so wonderful if you would join us in our new TOMIC challenge. The rest of the Magnolia design team have made the most stunning cards for your inspiration. I look forward to visiting with you and see all your beautiful Birthday creations!

love
