magnolia down under challenge #7

Cor Blimey another card, another challenge all in one day. If this is what staying up all night is like, I think I'll do it more!!!!

I recently found this challenge blog and loved the theme, also as I was already doing a brown theme, it seemed silly not to

So over at Magnolia Down Under Challenge Blog, this week the theme is Sepia. For some reason the photo is showing a completely different shade of brown, it's more of a toffee shade IRL, oh well that's my photography for!

For this card I've dusted off poor old Martha, she's not been inked up in yonks, the papers are HOTP, the two script stamps I received yesterday, they are by Crafty Individuals which I bought from the Craft Barn. The sentiment stamp is Close to my Heart, which I won a while ago in a blog challenge which was hosted by Laurel, my SBS 11 sister. Really not happy with this pic or the one in my previous post to be honest, they look so much different IRL.

Thanks for popping by my lil oasis, ttfn xx vicki xx

Gorge papers, love the shabby layout. Just want to point out, that was actually a compliment by the way - it didn't sound too good when I read it back! Whoops ;o) ~♥~

Oh wow, I had quite forgoten that Magnolia does those troll images as well, must get some! Amazing card, cute and beautiful message too!

Annika said...

Thank you for a lovely comment and becoming a follower of my blog, I am truly honoured!
Re doily: I just got them from ebay (put "paper doily" into a search and you get loads of results). My doily was six inches but they come in loads of shapes and sizes.
If you have a pound shop nearby it's worth having look there as well, they often have stuff like that, saw some in one near me quite recently!
Thanks again!
