Magnolialicious Challenge dt

I have had to hit the ground running for the last 48  hours, had so much to do.  I am now taking a deep breath and hope to get into the swing of things again, so forgive me for being somewhat late with this post.
We have a new challenge on the Magnolia-licious challenge blog chosen by Angela here is your picture inspiration:
I am using #3031 Tilda as a Shepherd aswell as #1412 Fantasy flower available from Magnolia-licious store where you can expect exceptional service from Diana and her team.  I wanted to try a twisted esel that we are seeing so much of in blogland lately, and i bought this wonky squares spellbinder espcially to make this booklike  centre to write the sentiment on when sending the card.
I have used loads of flowers and pearls from my stash, and i cut up a MS border and re-assembled it to go around my image.

The only problem with this style of card is that to properly showcase all the detials you need loads of photos, so i do hope you wont mind that this post is filled with pics.

I am pleased with how this turned out and hope it will inspire you to come and play with us on Magnolia-licious challenge blog
Have a great week
