Magnolia Down Under Challenge!

Magnolia Down Under has a wonderful challenge this week! It is to make an EASEL card! We all love those! For this challenge I brought these 3 punches and made my easel card. I just glued each piece to each other to form a circle.




My pictures turned out just terrible...bad lighting that is for sure! I certainly need some tips on taking great pictures!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend..enjoy all the Olympics! I am so excited for Sundays game. Canada VS USA...that is going to be a fantastic game!

Hi Christine, thats a fabulous card, love the image its so beautifully coloured, and the papers are gorgeous. I use those punches to create my flowers, you need to mould them with a ball tool to create the dimension if youd like to give it a try, you will be amazed at how fabulous they look. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxx

WOW! This is divine! Fabulous! Stunning! I love how you state that you "just glued each piece to each other" as if it was easy peasy lemon squeezy. It must have taken ages and been seriously fiddly but it's a fantastic idea and the end result looks beautiful inside and out! Hugs to you! Lesley
