Magnolia Down Under & Get Sketchy

Today I just couldnt get this card right. I had a great sketch, a great colour combo and yet I just wasnt overly happy with the result.... it probably didnt help that I had trouble lining up my border punch and that for some unknown reason my paper cutter just wouldn't cut straight (it couldn't possibly be the user? Right?). Anyway, little Tilda finally had a card to sit on.

As I excitedly mentioned last week, Magnolia Down Under Challenges are now weekly, and their challenge this week is to use the colour combo Pink & Grey. I used the sketch from this week's Get Sketchy and voila! I have to say though, I was in a bit of a panic going through my head to figure out what grey patterned papers I had.... then it hit me... I had bought some of the gorgeous Magnolia papers from Kellie at her Magnolia Down Under store - perfect!

  6. Wow, love the card, I had that punch but I broke it :( now I miss it, hehehe. It's funnny but my papercutter has the same problem with cutting straight so it has to be the cutters problem, not us, lol. Thanks for joining us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges!
