My First Magnolia Card and my Candy Winners

Yes, as the title says, today I made my first Magnolia Card.......I've had this stamp for quite some time too, but it's the first time I'm using it.. shame shame ... Anyways, after seeing some gorgeous cards, using this stamp for an Easter Card and after seeing all these Easter themed challenges around at the moment... I was really inspired to play along.

As always, I coloured my stamp with my promarkers....

.. followed this sketch today and added just one flower, a little bow and some gems for the final touch. I don't normally do so many layers on my cards, but I am so pleased I tried it out.. and anyway that's what challenges are for.. Next time though I'll go a step further and try different patterned papers.  

I made my card for these challenges
- Hobbystempels 8 - THE SKETCH
- Let's Ink It UP 12 - EASTER
- Simon Says Challenge - EASTER/SPRING COLOURS
- Sarah Hurley - EASTER
- Paper Cutz 86 - A bunny, lamb, chick or Easter egg

Now before I go, I also got my Candy Winners today woo hoo... and so today we have .....







Congrats girls on your win, thank you everyone for playing along, and thank you to everyone for supporting me and my blog over this last year.. wish I could give something to everyone .... .The winners please leave me a comment with your email address so that I can contact you to send you your prize..... 

Big hugs

OMG Dora this is absolutely beautiful you have coloured Tilda to perfection and I just adore those papers and flower, awesome card. I am a mega fan of Tilda and have loads of Magnolia stamps the majority of which are still in their packets unopened I really should get them out and start using them, lol.
