Just Magnolia Challenge #24 - Color Combo/Magnolia Down Under Challenge #23 - Buttons

Well finally a card. I think everyone is slowing down a touch. My blog list just doesn't seem to get updated too quickly, so I don't feel too bad about being slow myself. This is my entry to Just Magnolia's challenge this week which is a color combo, pink, grey and optional black. I decided to make my little Tilda sitting on a button jar instead of a jam jar. This enabled me to be able to enter her into the Magnolia Down Under Challenge which is buttons. I used some Nicole Heady ribbon and a charm given to me as a gift from Cute Stamps and Cards Jacqueline. Hope you have a great day.
Hugs xx
