Magnolia autumn swirl


Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. A Magnolia card today with an Autumn feel as we're certainly having the weather for it here and using one of the older Magnolia images water coloured with distress inks. The card is a tent shape with an aperture cut using a nestability labels die, the cut Tilda has been attached to a piece of acetate and hung from the inside top of the aperture so she can flutter in the breeze :). I also water coloured the Magnolia large toadstool and leaves images for the border at the bottom. I love the paper which came from the Magnolia shop but unfortunately there was not brand name on it. The punched borders top and bottom are done with a Martha Stewart punch and I've glittered around the leaf, Tilda's wings and the toadstool spots with Star Dust Stickles. Have a good Monday and as always thanks for your comments, I always appreciate them.

Simply stunning Chris, love all the gorgous details like the fab punching (haven't seen that one before) the lovely ribbon and the way the aperture sort of mirrors the shape of the oak leaf. You have achieved a wonderful vibrancy with your D.I.'s.
Hope all well.
