Magnolia Down Under Challenges 1st Birthday Bash CANDY Blog Hop...

Sorry, this post is a little late, but here it goes for the blog hop.......

Hello there Magnolia Lovers and Welcome to the 1st Birthday Blog Hop for Magnolia Down Under Challenges....!!

We are so excited and thrilled to become 1! Who knew that when Magnolia Down Under Challenges started with only 3 members it would be bigger and better a year on. We are all SO EXCITED that we have decided to do a birthday blog hop and what's better is that all the DT are offering CANDY! To be eligible you have to hop on to each Design Team Members blog and leave them some comment lovin affection ;) Winners will be announced on Magnolia Down Under Challenges Blog at the end of the challenge and also on the personal DT blogs on who won their candy.

If you've just happened to come across my blog and didn't start at the beginning, click HERE....  But if you have come from Angela ...........  then you are well on your way into the hop....


Here's my card I created for this Birthday celebration week!
I was going thru all my pre-stamped images and found this handsome Edwin; thought I'd make a masculine card for a nice change.
So here he is, coloured in lightly with inks.  I've used Basic Grey papers from the Origins 6x6 pad.  I've created a tag with a 7gypsies label set and used the Upsy Daisy set for the 'birthday celebrations'.
I've also done some layering in assorted ribbons and twine, then finished off with a row of buttons. 
Here's a closer look:

On the inside of the card, I've made a small pocket so you can add in a gift card or extra note!

And here's my candy for the Birthday Bash.
One of the new stamps from the Easter range, flowers, rhinestones and some lace doilies.
If you love the lace doilies you can find more of these lovelies in my Etsy shop!

So just leave a comment for me to see and you will have the opportunity to win this cute prize pack. 
Thanks for stopping by.... Continue the hop by visiting Debra
