Just Magnolia Challenge 3

Hi everyone, hope you all enjoyed the long weekend. A card today for Just Magnolia Challenge 3 where this week there's a lovely sketch to follow and some fantastic inspiration from the design team girls. I've used the sunflower Tilda which I've water coloured with distress inks, cut out and mounted over the nestie cut ovals. Background card is Bazzil Bling and Canson Kraft card and I've used some white raffia ribbon for the centre panel element tied with thin brown ribbon.  I added a flowery swirl stamp by Personal Impressions and a Woodware sentiment then finished off with some Stickles and tiny half pearls. TFL. Chris x

Sandra said...

Hi Sweetie,
Wow, what fab colours you have put together for this card. It's great! The plain background gives a really serene feel to your card (please tell me why I keep typing crad instead of card?!) It also helps keep the focus on the image. Hmmmmm methinks I need a lesson in 'less is more'
Hugs
