My First Magnolia

After several years of admiring Kevin's Magnolia cards (and all the other lovely Magnolia cards out there), Kevin finally pushed me to try one (HERE is a link to Kevin's wonderful blog - McCrafty's Cards). I am so intimidated by them because the people who do Magnolia cards all look like they have Master's Degrees in coloring and rooms full of just the right dies and flowers. Seriously! But Kevin encouraged me and so here is my first card done with a Magnolia image.

I know it is CAS in every way for a Magnolia creation, but it will have to do for now until I can get 50,000 more flowers, dies, and cool texturing things.

I am entering this in these challenges:

Simply Magnolia - Anything Goes

Magnolia-licious - Anything Goes

Magnolia Down Under - Distressing

Hugz! Hope your weekend has been wonderful!!!
