Good morning crafty friends! I am so excited to share my first official Magnolia Down Under challenges card with you today!

For my card I once again used my Echo Park Life is Good patterned paper...it was perfect for this colour combo. I decided to ink up a neglected stamp, Tilda with Sunflower...shame I neglected her really, as, she is sooooo darn cute, but she has got some love now,smile! I coloured her with my Copics and cut her out with my oval Nesties using the "Out of the Box Technique" and inked the background colour with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I used this fabulous Magnolia sentiment too from the Animal and Pet Collection. I stamped it with green Memento ink on one of the elements that co-ordinates with the Echo Park pp. I cut two scalloped borders from Kraft cardstock with my MFT large scallop border di-nmaics die and added some Martha Stewart seam binding that I crinkled. I punched some MS butterflies from QuicKutz cork material and added some Prima flowers and a little bling too!

Here is the inside it is rather simple...this sentiment is by Stamping Bella.
