Magnolia Down Under Challenge #147

Good Sunday Everyone!!!

Today at Magnolia Down Under we are looking for you to Make your very own embellishments for your cards, from Scratch 

So we are looking for stuff like, yo-yo flowers, rolled paper flowers, crochet flowers,  covered buttons, etc - basically anything you can make!!! 

For my card I've made some fabric yo-yo's from some scrap fabric from my quilting stash hehehe and some really cute rolled flowers using a special die from My Favourite Things.  I have however added in a few things that I didn't make so - that's ok too:-) I've teamed them with cute Waterlily Tilda from the new collection and to step out of my comfort zone just a wee bit more - I've gone and used Purple!!! OMGOSH I never use purple!!!! (well certainly not much anyway)

So here is my card - I hope you love it as much as me:-) 

So we can't wait to see what gorgeous Handmade embellishments you guys are gunna make this week, and if you need a little more inspiration then jump on over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have made you.... it sure to impress!!
