TOMIC # 9 - make a round card

Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed the weekend. A new challenge starts today on TOMIC and this week our theme is to make a round card. There's some wonderful inspiration from my design team friends, we hope you can join us and be in the with the chance of winning a gorgeous prize from Magnolia and being one of our top 5.

I'v cut my round card from watercolour paper and continued my painted scene with Magnolia Explore Tilda right to the edge of the card where I've added a rainbow of eyelets all around the edge :). There's lots of stardust stickles and the 'wishing you rainbows..' sentiment which is now my favourite as it can be used for so many occasions.

Have a lovely day today :)

Oh, I found it! It took me a while to notice all the cards on your Magnolia DT site were *only* Magnolia cards!! Anyway, love this one too and was searching for more information on how you did the ground. Do you have anything from you older posts or a short tutorial?

This is out of this world!!!

OMG I'M IN LOVE!!!!!!!!! I love every detail and the colours you went with on the ground is truly above and beyond. Not your typical grass indeed and that's what makes it breathtaking.

I have always had you as one of my ultimate favor bloggers and I just got a reminder why:D
