Just Magnolia #76 Challenge 2 by 2 Fun

Good Afternoon Everyone !!!! Just Magnolia have a really cool Challenge happening at the moment which is 2x2.... so 2 lots of stuff!! I thought this sounded like fun, so I made a card that kinda turned into a Christmas Card!! hahahah  here it is hope you like it!!


For my 2x2 I have 2 red check ruffles, 2 Pair of Red Brads, 2 Images, 2 Patterned Papers, 2 Cherry Blossom Flowers, and when you look at my gate fold card, unfolded, you can see I used 2 Christmas Post Marks!!  Such fun!!!


I'm not all that impressed with my water colouring on this one, so please don't look too hard at that!! I guess its because I'm not feeling that well, with this darn cold, that wont go away:-( anyway I'm not gunna let it stop me from what I love, Craftin' and my Magnolia's !!!  So I used a new Tilda, Tilda with Apples from the new Autumn Collection and an old one, the Apples in the bucket, I can't think which collection this one is from right now... oh well.... they do go together pretty darn good I reckon!!

I'm going to enter my card in a spoon Full of Sugar and Stamp Something Challenges too!!
