Magnolia Challenges

Hi there once again lol! Second post in one day, damn I'm getting good in my old age hehe! Made this card for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge which was to use black & white/cream + one other colour. I then realised that it would also work for the Just Magnolia Challenge which was "One for the girls". My card will also work for the Create 4 fun challenge as I have followed their sketch as well as for A spoon full of sugar and Sir Stampalot. Not bad going for one card, huh?!

Close up of image and flowers. Hoping you can see the chalked edges and the stickles I've used. DP's are craftshouse "Allsorts" and DCWV "glitter cardstock". I punched the butterflies out with an X Cut punch from the same glitter cardstock and embellished them with pearls which I purchased from the hobby house. The flowers are once again from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is a stamp from Lily of the Valley. Thanks for popping by again folks. Lotsa luv xxx
