Magnolia Down Under -You gotta Kiss A Lot of Frogs

Good Morning. Today's card is for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge. The Challenge for this week was to use the sketch provided, and to make a girlie card. As Design Team Members, we also received some printed digital backgrounds from the Cutting Cafe to use on our cards.

The Cutting Cafe is offering three sets of digital printouts to the winner of this weeks Challenge.

My card this week used a really sweet image of Tilda with a crown and holding a frog! I printed the sentiment from my computer. The "Sweet " Oval was cut form the Cutting Cafe's printout.

Background paper is Basic Gray. Flowers and heart and frog are from punches. The heart border is Martha Stewart. I ran the aqua blue paper through different embossing folders. The paper for the base card is from the Glitter Stack from DCWV. I added stickles to the crowns.

This is my last card for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge (as a design team member that is, they aren't getting rid of me completely, I'll be back to play!!!) I want to thank Kellie and all the fabulous girls on the team for asking me to join them this past five months and for welcoming me in. I feel like I have come to know each of you and I sure know a lot more about Australia than I did before I started this journey!! Thanks for taking a chance on a Yankee, I have loved every minute of my time with you.

So, get on over to the Magnolia Down Under Challenge and check out the cards from the Design Team, there are some awesome entries this week, you won't be disappointed. There is a link on the right that will take you right there!
Thanks for stopping by. Until later........
