Magnolia Down Under Challenge #21


This is my card for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge #21 which requires you to make a card with the following recipe: 4 papers, 3 brads, 2 ribbons, and 1 flower. This is what I came up with. I used my Basic Grey Wisteria paper which I have in every pattern, so finding 4 was no problem. I accented with mauve and green. I added 3 brads that I had previously purches at Michaels, I scalloped with my Martha Stewart Edge punch and layered 2 ribbons on top. Finally I threw on my favorite MS flower with some punched out greenery behind. I like putting the two different kinds of greenery with the flowers because I always get the extra whispy greenery whenever I purchase flowers. I used my UBER favorite Magnolia called Tilda on Prominade. She so reminds me of my little Shelby (although getting Shelby in a dress these days would be an accomplishment). I stamped my cut out Nestibility with the flowers from the summer kit of Magnolia and pop dotted my Tilda so it looked like she was strolling in the summer flowers. Hope you like it.
