Magnolia Down Under Challenge #95

It's time for a new challenge at Magnolia Down Under!!  WHOOHOOO so this week we want you to get a little krafty - yeah we want you to use some kraft or brown paper bag colour card stock somewhere on your card!!

So with my Krafty Kard, I've cut out a label using my cricut (which I was going to use for something else - but like always the usally get used for something different!!) and I've also cut a tag using the Magnolia Doo Hickey Tag die out of Kraft card too.

So my tag has been stamped with the Butterfly Dreams small butterfly - which I then embossed white, because all my "white" ink is so crappy!!  I then pulled out a couple of Prisma's and coloured the image slightly - Don't you love images coloured with Prisma's on Kraft??  I haven't done a full image, yet so that might be my next project... 

Anyway here is my card, and yeah - hehehe - I hope you love it as much as me!!

Also, this week my rolled rose die came in the mail - so here it is in amongst the other flowers... I love the effect that it gives... not so rough and ruggered like some of the other rolled flowers I have made in the past!! heheheheh Now I want the medium and small ones... (Of course!!)

So I hope you will come along and play this week, we will love to see your beautiful work!!!
