A yummy sketch from MDUC

Challenge #31 over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges is to make a girlie card using this sketch and include something orange. The orange thing threw me a bit at first but then I remembered I had this gorgeous DP left over from a previous card, and it has orange in it. The spotty paper is the reverse side of the main DP and the paper at the bottom is a separate sheet I bought to go on the first card I made with this paper, but never used it :)
When I saw the lines on the bottom of this sketch I immediately thought of paper pleating as it was a challenge over at Just Magnolia a few weeks ago. I did not get a chance to play along with it then but I loved the look of it and just knew it would fit the sketch perfectly. I sort of switched up the elements on the bottom a little and distressed the heck out of every available edge :)

The papers are from Kaiser, the roses are from I am roses, the leaves and cake stamp are from Bizzy Becs and the tickets are a Bizzy Bec digi. You can get the yummy scrummy oops Tilda from the Magnolia Down Under Store (she is on sale...!). Links to all stores can be found in my sidebar (yup, I'm getting lazy :) and a little short on time)

Our sponsor this week is The Cutting Cafe, be sure to head over there and check out what they have got, There are a few things that have made their way on to my wish list :)
Make sure you head on over the Magnolia Down Under Challenge site and check out the DT's amazing work, you will be blown away by all the talent in one place, plus there is some exciting news for you all!
