Magnolia Down Under Challenge #58

We have a lovely challenge over at Magnolia Down Under today - it's to create an EASEL card - I'm sure you've seen these around - they really are lovely to have on display.  And I had a lovely time creating mine:

I've used this sweet Tilda with her basket of flowers!
My card measures 13cm square and I've used some gorgeous Webster pages - these are so pretty and have a vintage feel about them.

For this top part of the card, I've coloured the image with Copic markers, then I've cut out and poped up on the scallop oval which has been created using Nestabillities.
I've used the lace doily punch, some white lace, a doily from my shop, pretty flowers, a pearl spray and a pearl stick pin.

For the bottom part, I've used the nested circle scallop and printed out a birthday sentiment. Then I've added swirls of pearls, a doily flower and yellow rose.
I love how this card turned out - creating with Magnolia's gives me the opportunity to go all out with the pretties.
You can check out all the details at the Magnolia Down Under blog - the design team will have lots more inspiration to share too - we hope you will play along this week.
Thanks for coming by and have a beautiful day.
