Magnolia Down Under Challenges #60

**Edited to add - I came in the Top 5 at the ATS Magnolia Challenge with this card!! Thanks so much girls!!**

Good morning!! It is Magnolia Down Under Challenges time again - Yay!!! We have a colour challenge for you this week... and what a colour challenge it is!! When I first saw the challenge I though... Oh my goodness - what on Earth am I going to do? They don't call them challenges for nothing I spose! But then not long after that I was out at my local craft store and found this amazing paper....

So I guess now would be a good time to tell you that the colour challenge is - orange, green, pink, brown and blue! Sounds nice and bright, ready for spring, doesn't it?

I decided that I loved the paper so much that I would try and make the card a little simpler than usual and let the cute little Fall Tilda and gorgeous paper do the job for me:

Of course, I had to use my Tilda Lace Doo Hickey (available at Tickled Pink Stamps) on the edge of the card - and yes - it DID cut through both layers quite easily, and some beautiful white cotton lace. The fantastic paper is American Crafts "Blue Skies" collection Good Vibration. I love it. Expect to see more cards using this fun paper in the next few weeks.

So you have until Saturday midday AEST to enter the challenge.... and don't forget to see what our creative and talented DT made to show you - wow!

And I am going to try my luck over at:
