A Challenge card...

Hi everyone

Hope you're well?  We are still in the throes of Winter in South Africa, the perfect weather for staying indoors and crafting.

I have found a few challenges to enter.  Sketch Saturday have this wonderful sketch for you to work with.  I am so behind with my Thank You cards.  Thank goodness for challenges blogs like SS, it makes life soooo much easier when working off a sketch !  I'll be keeping this one on file for sure.


And here is my little entry for this challenge... excuse the picture overload...

I am also entering this card into It's A Magnolia challenge #38 - where they'd like you to make a Summer Magnolia card and this one definitely is summery.

The gorgeous floral paper was a purchase from Paola's shop. The rest are from various papercraft shops I visit locally.  The cute little Magnolia can be purchased from Simon Says Stamps. They have an awesome range.  The sentiment and ribbon are from my stash.
Here's a little peek at the inside... It just finishes a card off when you decorate the inside as well, don't you think ?
And one last pic, which I hope will highlight the glaze I've added to those flowers...


Tilda has been coloured with Copics, my preferred choice of colouring tools.  The cute little bows in the corner is a purchase from a local store, Merrypak.

Thank you to my new Followers for joining.  I am so pleased you found my blog interesting enough to join. I'll pop by and visit you soon.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
