Magnolia Down Under Challenge with a Just Magnolia twist.


Hi, hope everybody is well today. Today I saw my first rice crop being sown in three years, which is exciting for me as I am an agronomist by trade and have taken involuntary extended maternity leave due to a drought and there being no rice for the last 3 years in this area! Took my two girls out to show them as well.


Anyway onto the card. This is the card I have done for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge #25 which was distressing. I have also used the sketch from Just Magnolia Challenge Week 28 designed by Martine. I thought this would be simple but I really struggled to get the papers to go together just right. I used Magnolia A Little Yummy Paper but only had 2 of the range and needed more!! I love this Kitchen Tilda stamp though and think she makes the card.

Alleena what a great card. Love your colouring and the Magnolia DP looks great. Bet you can't wait to get some Copics. My offer for the stamped images stands. Let me know.
