Just Magnolia....Challenge 1.....Sketch

Thanks to everyone who left such encouraging comments for me regarding yesterday's card....I really don't know what's wrong me at the moment but I am hating just about everything I make....I'm sure I'll get over it but in the meantime I can't express enough how much your supportive comments mean to me.....I'm just being a div!! lol!

Anyway, onto today's card which is for a new challenge blog called 'Just Magnolia' and it does exactly what it says in the title lol! I thought I'd give the girls my support for their first challenge plus they also have a fantastic prize on offer which I would sooooo love to win :) They have a fab sketch for their first challenge and I have chosen to use DP that are a digi download from Nitwit Collections and this collection is called 'Grins & Giggles'. I've coloured my Tilda in with PM's and mounted her onto an embossed background over which I rubbed an inkpad to soften the white background down a bit. The flowers, gems, ribbon and lace are from my craft box and the sentiment is an Elzybells stamp. TFL :)

Hi Donna, sorry not been to visit for a while. I've got quite a few of Nitwits kits they are fab, if you like theirs you will probably love Kay Millers kits. Great card and I love the colours.
