Just Magnolia Challenge

Evening friends... my last challenge card for the weekend I think... thanks for all your visits and kind comments, I've really enjoyed reading them. As I work full day, I'm finding it more and more difficult to craft in the evenings, as it then becomes a long day... hence my trying to find as many challenges as I can to enter over the weekend... so apologies for all the posts today, but you'll hardly get any out of me during the week...

Just Magnolia have a fab sketch for you to follow this week, so pop along and pay them a visit.  Their DT have created some fabulous card for you to drool over and to give you inspiration.
Here is my little creation on their sketch.  I just adore this little Tilda in Striped Tights.  I coloured her in with my copics.  The base of my card is a gorgeous turquoisy blue. I matted the beautiful DP from My Minds Eye, which is double sided and I've used both.  In the centre, the white strip of paper I FINALLY got my border cutters out my cupboard and cut a border along both edges.  Kendall is alway reprimanding me for not using my border cutters.  I tend to forget that I have these gadgets (this is a menopausal problem, I think... lol).  In any event, I was quite pleased with the end result. Following the sketch I just used a ribbon, some pearls, flowers and a sentiment to complete.   The pearls I purchased from Paola.
I hope you've been having fun crafting this weekend.  I wish you all a good working week and hope to catch up again with you soon... hugs as always, Sharon
