Magnolia down under Challenge #21

Woo Hoo! i have finally come up with something to enter the magnolia down under challenge! i have wanted to do a challenge there for ages but i have not had any appropriate stamps for the last few, i think they were winter themed and fathers day, and of course in my first purchase i bought summer themed and very girly stamps (there is a christmas one too but she arrived a couple of days too late for the christmas in july challenge, bugger!) last week i became the proud owner of a couple more magnolias (feeding the addiction), and my first edwin, so he shall feature soon. he is all stamped up and just waiting for me to be bothered to colour him... it's been one of those weeks.
so challenge #21 with magnolia down under is a recipe:
  • 1 flower
  • 2 ribbons
  • 3 brads and
  • 4 papers

it was not until afterwards when i was taking pictures and thinking about the 2 ribbons, and perhaps i should have used 2 different ribbons. i used the same ribbon but i used it twice, hope that still counts :)

this pic without flash shows the colours better

but this one with the flash is a clearer/sharper image, so hopefully the 2 together give you a good idea of what the card looks like in real life

i think until i get a new camera, which could take years, knowing what we are like :), i may just have to post all my projects with flash on/off photos. oh well. thank you all for stopping by

Fabulous job with the recipe challenge - love your choice of DPs and this is one of my favourite Tilda's - and the ribbon in her hair counts as a ribbon too - or at least that's what I figure - LOL
Thanx for playing at MDUC

Oh Fran, your card is adorable!!! I know your struggles with the camera, me too!! I have to leave the shadow over my images or the photo editor makes them nice and orange, and the ancient camera I'm using to begin with..... no good. Looks terrific, great colouring of the image and great job pairing the papers!!

OOh, love this card Fran. Love the way you've used the background papers, placing them on an angle and adding the 3 brads. The colours you've chosen co-ordinate beautifully !

Thanks for playing this week.
