Magnolia Down Under Challenge #68

Good Morning Magnolia Fans, today is Sunday and that means time for a new Challenge!!!!  We had so many great entries for last week's Tag it, it was great to see so many different creations and so many different ways in which to use a Tag!!

Ok so this week we have a wonderful Sketch.  A few weeks ago we had a Sketch off within our Design Team and our sketch this week is by Debbie Pamment!!  Its a fabulous sketch so I'm sure you'll wanna play this week!!

Here is my card, hope you like it!!  I received my Magnolia Stamp Club on Thursday this week, WHOOHOO looks us little Aussie's were first this time around!!  So I quickly mounted my newbie Christmas Stamps and whipped up this:

I have used 3 of the new Stamps, Edwin with his List, the Sentiment and the tree, which I wasn't to sure about, but actually its rather nice when you stamp it for like a background!!  I have followed Debbie's Sketch but I then managed to cover up all the pretty papers with my Lace... Oh well these things happen hey?? Now After I had finished so I thought this card, I really thought it needed something else, but what???  anyway after a little blogland surfing I came across fellow Design Team Member Debbie Dolphin, who had put little snowflakes on her circle (on just so happens the same Edwin!!! hahaha) and I thought it looked really awesome, so I took my Inspiration from that!! Thanks Debbie!!

Here is a pic of Debbie's Sketch:

  8. Fabulous card Karen, isn't that Edwin adorable with his list :) One for the wish list I think. I was so busy over the weekend I did not go on the computer for a couple of days and it turned out I missed out in the magnolia pre-order!!! Waahhh!! so now I have to stalk Kellie and Bec for their second pre-order, what a bummer! How dare life get in the way of my stamping...
