Magnolia Down Under Challenge #93

Happy Easter Everyone!!!

I hope Mr Bunny hopped along to your house and left you some yummy little choc eggs.... or maybe he left you some rather large ones... either way I hope you all enjoy your day with your family and friends!!

So today at Magnolia Down Under Challenges, our leader, Kylie has drawn up a super fantastic Sketch for us to follow or - you know mix up a bit... whatever takes your fancy!!  I followed the sketch to a T because, well, I really, really think it is cool!!

So for my card, I have used Beautiful Tilda from the Butterfly Dreams Collection, I also used the small butterfly and sentiment on my Tag.... the butterfly in versa mark for a softer look!!  And My Seam binding finally came all the way from Wild Orchid Crafts.... I have been eyeing this stuff off for what seems like forever!! and yay now I finally have some:-) So here is my card, I hope you love it as much as me!!!

Here is a bit of a picture of the sparkles!!  I used my Atyou Spica Clear pen, that Kylie gave me ages ago - it's finally decided to work ... I was having some troubles.... anyway I love the effect - I just hope you can sort of see it!!

So thanks for looking and I hope you will head on over to the Magnolia Down Under blog to see what gorgeous creations the ladies have made for your inspiration.... I know it will knock your socks off - oooooo and don't forget to leave some love at our newest Design Team Members, Bron and Louise!!
