Exciting News and Magnolia Down Under Challenge # 64...Fancy Folds...Happy Birthday to you...!!!

Good morning crafty friends! I have some exciting news to share with you and I made my first envelope box for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge # 64...Fancy Folds!!! I made it with my Martha Stewart Score board and the fabulous tutorial that Annika did up on her gorgeous blog Another Messy Crafter. Hope my "envelobox" is not too much of a stretch for the Fancy Folds challenge...I know it is not nearly as fancy or complicated as the other gorgeous and intricate cards the MDU DT have created but I really wanted to play along!


So, my exciting news is.......I am one of the 4 new DT members for Magnolia Down Under Challenges blog...Whoo Hoo...I'm so super excited! What a fabulous DT and challenge blog they have!!! I am so honoured to have been picked alongside the likes of Camillia, Debbie Dolphin and Denise, 3 amazingly talented stampers!!! WOW!!! A total surprise for me and I am just soooo ecstatic!


So, I made this envelope box for a card I made a while back and have been saving to give to my friend's daughter on her upcoming birthday! When I first saw Annika's tutorial using the MS Score Board I was very intrigued...then I saw the MS score board at Micheals so I picked one up and today I attempted my first envelope box! It was super easy following along with Annika's tutorial and I am so glad to finally know how to make these fabulous boxes for my bulky easel cards! So I made this box to go with this easel card for Olivia ! She just loves the Tilda cards I make for her and she loves princesses too...what 4 yer old, soon to be 5, doesn't, right!

So, I thought to celebrate my exciting news, about joining the Magnolia Down Under Challenges DT, I would join the challenge even though this envelope box is a bit of a stretch for the "Fancy Folds" challenge! I have been dieing to colour this Tilda as a Ballerina image for a while. I also know that Olivia has been taking ballet lessons I thought it would be perfect! I am very happy with how Tilda turned out. I added a lot of Glamour dust to her tiara and the swirls! I pop-dotted her on the front panel of the envelobox and coordinated it to match the Tilda Princess card and added her name to the box with QK Maddie Anne.


Well, I hope that you will be able play along with the me and the fabulous DT over at the Magnolia Down Under Challenges blog every Sunday! I offically start at the begining of October and I am so excitited...eeekkk!

Well, thank so much for stopping by again!
