Just Magnolia Challenge - Week 54 "It takes two"

Hiya all my dear buddies!! Today I'm on a bit of a high as it's my Birthday and my Darling Hubby surprised me by taking a days leave and spoiling me rotten as always!! I've made this card to enter into the challenge. I've stamped Tilda then masked her and stamped the fence over her. Must say I quite enjoyed this technique, first try and definately won't be my last lol! Thought it was going to be difficult but it was actually simple.

I've used Magnolia papers, the ribbon/lacey thing is from Dunelm (bought it yonks ago), the gorgeous roses are from the one and only Wild Orchid Crafts and the image has been coloured in using Promarkers. I then got a bit excited with the can of glitter spray which is from Crafters Companion hehe and the pearl brads are from the hobby house.

And here's the close up shot! Anyway peeps, hope you have a wonderful evening. Sure I'll be back tomorrow with another post. Lotsa luv xxxx
