Magnolia Down Under Challenge #36 & Guest Designer

 You know that I really love and enjoying creating with Magnolia stamps and I always try to join in with the challenges over at Magnolia Down Under.  Well, Kellie has invited me to join her Design Team as guest for the month of March.  How fabulous is that?  I'm really excited and can't wait to share with you, my creations for the next four weeks. 
So today, the challenge is a really nice one:
3 papers, 3 flowers, 2 buttons & 1 bow

And here's what I've come up with:

I've used one of the new Magnolia stamps from the Raising the Ceiling collection - this one is Love News Tilda.  You'll be able to use this stamp for lots of different occasions.  I've coloured this Tilda with my Copic markers.
For the three papers I've gone with some pattern paper from Basic Grey and a piece of vintage bookprint. - I thought this went well with the stamp!
For the three flowers I've used two blue flowers and make a ruffled flower with vintage bookprint and added  a corduroy button to the centre.  Then I've placed this onto a blue doily.
I've added a button to the bow - this is a clear button with a punched out circle attached behind.  The other button is on the ruffled flower.
And lastly, the bow in striped blue ribbon finishes off the embellishments.
Here's a closer look at some of the details:
If you would love to join in with this fun and pretty challenge, head over to the Magnolia Down Under Challenge website to view all the details and see lots of inspiration from the Design Team.
