Magnolia Down Under challenge #36

No... I am not missing... My family and I had a weekend away at the coast - our first ever family holiday together.... actually my first holiday in years. And guess what - it rained. Yep. Oh well. The kids had fun at the zoo when it wasn't raining!

I arrived home to see that I had come in the top 5 (well 6 actually this week, tough competition!!) at Magnolia Down Under Challenges for challenge #35! Thank you so much girls, I am thrilled. That isnt the only exciting news I came home to...but I will tell you about that in another post. For now, on to my card for Magnolia Down Under Challenges #36.

This week there is a super recipe...
3 papers,
3 flowers,
1 bow

I have made another Joy Fold card. The one from my last post was so much fun to do I had to have another go. I've done some masking so that little Tilda can sit on her daisy and the image is coloured with Copics. I've used Kraft cardstock as my base and white for the next layer. The patterned papers are from My Memories (the lime and blue pieces) and Magnolia (the chocolate piece). The blue flowers are Kaisercraft and the white Cherry Blossoms are from Bizzy Becs. The lace is from my stash.

A little closer...for some detail. I love these fresh colours!
