Just Magnolia Challenge Sketch

The new 'Just Magnolia' blog opened it's doors yesterday and the first challenge was a sketch. I've actually done two cards using this sketch as I wanted to try it as it was shown and then rotate it. I already had some Tildas coloured in, so it was just a case of picking some paper and embellishments!
I love the red and lime colour combo with 'Summer Tilda'... but I did spend quite a while fiddling about and in the end I think I have over done it a bit. There were a few gaps and things didn't seem to gel on it.
'Tilda in fall' has worked out I thought I would show them together anyway....Two very different cards using the same sketch.


  1. Hello Sally, the red and lime really pop,red is my favourite colour. Great cards,great colour combos.
    Happy crafting

  8. Really lovely Sally - and if I had to choose a favourite it would be Tilda with Basket - I love the subtle colour combinations although upon reflection the red is perfect for summer and works to really pop the card - actually they're both gorgeous lol - Bridgette xxx
