Warm wishes from the hot Aussie sun

Magnolia Down Under have gone to weekly challenges, whoo hoo!! The challenge for this week is to follow the sketch below and make it girly with orange. I love orange and it is such a summer colour so I had to use Beach Tilda with the Bathing Ring that my dear cousin Trace had stamped for me. What a great image!!

The girliness on the card, I hope is obvious, with the pearls and flowers and the paper lace done with my new Martha Stewart Double Loop border and corner punch set. And well, .... I went all out orange with Momento - Orange Blossom DP, orange card and orange rose. The Warm Wishes ticket sentiment is from Bizzy Becs Digital Store.

And did you see, I got into the Top 3 at Anya Ink last week and will be the weeks guest designer in a fortnight. How cool is that!!! Well I'm excited anyway as I haven't been doing this very long and have only had my Copics for a month.
