For your Wedding

It's time for another Magnolia Down Under Challenge
And welcome back for challenge #53. Our challenge this week is.....
IN THE NEWS - incorporate a bit of newspaper somewhere on your card.

 If you are wondering where my news print paper is, it is poking out from under the big white flower. I struggled a little with this challenge, I've seen some amazing creations using newsprint and the other Design Team members have come up with some amazing examples to inspire you, I hope you will join us this week and show us your wonderful creations.

I've been stuck in Wedding mode now for a while, I love the beautiful Wedding Collection Magnolia recently introduced and after making my Design Team cards to send to Magnolia Sweden,  I just can't stop. I don't know anyone getting married, but at least I will have a couple of cards ready just in case.

This is Magnolia's Bride & Groom, I've coloured them with Copic Markers. I was lucky enough to receive these beautiful doilies, pearls flourishes and tassle trim in my Tickled Pink Stamps DT Kit, Kellie has these available in her store along with some fabulous charms and perfect for Wedding/Anniversary themed creations. The matching gift box was made using my cricut expression die cutting machine, with tags bags & boxes cartridge, I need to buy some more of Kellies gorgeous tassle trim to add to the edges of my gift box. Both my card and gift box was glimmered and glamoured with Glimmer Mist and Stickles.
