Magnolia Down Under Challenge #16
Good morning again,the computer seems to be working fine now and just in time for Magnolia Down Under Challenge #16.This fortnights challenge is a colour combo challenge,there is a choice of colours and I chose the brown,cream and blue combo for this card.I wanted to make a vintage card this time, it has been a little while since I have done one of these and it is after all my favourite,I just love anything vintage.The DP I have used has a slight shimmer to it,it is so pretty IRL but a little harder to take a photograph of.I forgot to tell you that the Magnolia Down Under Challenge is now fortnightly giving you more time to enter,so you now have a fortnight to get this colour challenge done.So have a look at what the fabulous Design team came up with and join in.Well better get back to making the requested cards,have a fab weekend and hope you get lots of crafting done.Thanks for stopping by.
