Just Magnolia challenge card!

This is my entry for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge. Its a new challenge that has just started this week so if you haven't already, pop over and take a look at the fab sketch this week. The DT are absolutely amazing, so much talent within one little blog!

My cards have been quite simple lately so for me this was a bit of a challenge to use more than 2 layers! This tilda image was kindly sent to me by Sarah and I love this Tilda with her sunflower, so thanks Sarah. I coloured her with my whispers and distress inks. CS is coredinations and I have distressd it with my emery board and distress inks, spotty paper is from papermania. I have cut the circle with my nesties, embossed with divine swirls embosing folder and distressed again with inks! Ribbon is from my stash, I think I salvaged it from a box of chocolates?? Flowers are prima; button, thread and charm are from my stash. The sentiment is from a see D set.

Here is a closer view of the flower embellishments and Tilda!

I really enjoyed taking part in this challenge and hope to take part in some more. The only problem is I don't have any Magnolia stamps (I know, don't keel over in shock!) so I will have to rely on the images I have previously been sent. I'm sure they will keep me going for at least a year though! :-)

Well what a glorious day it has been, it really feels like summer is almost here! I hope you have all had a good day and have made the most of the wonderful sunshine!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

Hugs, Vicky x

You've made a gorgeous job Vicky, really love this one. Gorgeous colour combo and fan colouring on the image.

Thanks for your kind words about work. Today was much better as my colleagues, inc the academic staff, all rallied and joined forces against the manager who was lying through her teeth, trying to shift her mistake onto me! Hurrah for lovely friends! ~♥~
