Hanging around for some easter treats at MDUC

It's an Easter theme this week over at Magnolia Down Under and you are definitly going to wan to play alog as the prize is a $25 vocher from Simon Says. As you can see I do not own any Easter stamps so I use this Tilda the fabulous Tracey stamped up for me from the raising the ceiling collection. She is holding a little bag of goodies so I thought she would be appropriate for Easter. I have been dying to make a frame card since I saw THIS tutorial, and it was much easier than I thought it would be :) I can see more of these in my future, and the inside of the frame is the perfect place to nestle an arrangement of flowers. I searched all my stamps and did not have any sentiments for an Easter card, so I went with something simple and hand written, my least favourite part of the card because I HATE my handwriting. The cute little butterflies were a random punch from my collection, the label looked like it was needing a little something. The papers are Magnolia, get your HERE, I love these candy papers and after I finished my card I went to my local scrap sore and picked up a MS candy border punch, don't know where I would have used it on this card but I did buy it with these papers in mind :)

So, be sure to swing by the MDUC blog and check out the other amazing DT ladies work, they leave me speechless week after week, and don't forget to get your entries in for a chance to win this weeks amazing prize!!
