Just Magnolia Challenge

Hi everyone, hope you all had a lovely weekend. My card today is for the new Just Magnolia challenge which I'm sure is going to be a huge success, there's so much inspiration from the lovely and talented DT that it's bound to be! There's a great sketch to follow for the first week by Donalda thank you, I really enjoyed working with it. I've used a cute Magnolia image which is water coloured with distress inks. The card is for a gorgeous little girl who's going to be four, not quite sure that this is what I had in mind for her but I couldn't resist this paper any longer! I hope she likes it and that it doesn't have a too grown up look to it! Paper is Bo Bunny teamed up with cobalt blue and vanilla bazzil. I've used an embossing folder and done some sponging in blue distress ink on the layer under the image. TFL. Chris x
