all round Magnolia

Hi blog hoppers, missing me?  Well i am still here just having one of my hormonal upheavals, or whatever, a bit of an emotional speed wobble i geuss we could call it.  I did manage to get some crafting done today, between taking temperatures and giving luke warm baths and wiping noses, what a nightmare!  My kids have influenza, for real, sore achy bones and sky high temperatures, the runny noses started today, ah well, hopefully this will better prepare the immune system for the coming winter.

So this here is a card and box that the card will fit into, there is another half of this ensemble that i can only share with you later in the week as i made the other half of this project for one of my dt's, so you will have to come back on Tuesday to see what it is.

I have used my midsummer Tilda and mini tilda for the box, colored with copics.  Cuttlebug corners, bead pins lots of flowers, spica all over her grey bits ont he dress and some fine glitter glass all round the image.  I cut the image with nesties and added more fine glittah glass to the edge of the nestie.  MDUC want charms on your card so i added a hand charm that has hand made on it and then i also added a little heart bleow the bow, Just Magnolia anything goes, so this beauty is gonna be used for those two challenges.
