Just Magnolia Challenge - Friday 7/5/10

I haven't had a go at the Just Magnolia Challenge for so long but when I was asked to make a card for a customer's daughter-in-law who is into gardening the idea just suddenly fell into place as the challenge at Just Magnolia this week is "It takes two" ie you have to use two Magnolia images.  I have used a Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit backing sheet and added the Magnolia windmill and also Tilda.  I have coloured the images in with Promarkers but kept them to more earthy colours to tie in with the backing sheet.  I decided to decoupage the images to give the card more height.  The backing papers are from my stash - a green vellum, green pearlescent and a green backing paper designed by Nancy Watt as a freebie in a magazine a while back.  The flowers are made with a Woodware punch and Marianne Designs flower die from different shades of orange backing paper odds-and-ends which I have distressed with Tim Holtz's Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.  The card is finished off with a sentiment off the computer, some Marianne Designs ferns, Papermania glitterations, vellum butterfly adorned with some sparkly gems, fibres, card candy and an insert from Joanna Sheen's Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Pollycraft - Here comes the sun
By the Cute and Girly - Celebrations
Incy Wincy - Anything goes
Crazy Amigo - Birthday
Creative Card Crew - April flowers bring May flowers
CRAFT - Weddings or birthdays
Daring Cardmakers - Emerald Isle - this was certainly a challenge for me as I hate the colour green
Alphabet Challenge - B is for butterflies
Magnolia Down Under - Paper tole - I am hoping this means decoupage
The Crazy Challenge - Bling, bling, bling
Paperplay - Stamp/digi and bling
Totally Stampalicious - Flower power
Stamp Something - Birthdays
Whoopsi Daisy - As you like it.
