Just Magnolia Challenge - week 4 : In stitches

Can you believe it's week 4 already! And once again we have had such a fabulous response to the challenge, thanks so much to you all, I really loved visiting all your blogs (although it felt really weird to see my sketch popping up all over the place lol).

This week the challenge is for Stitching - now this can be faux stitching, hand stitching, machine stitching, whatever takes your fancy. Some of the DT have done amazing stitching - hand and faux. In fact I struggled to work out what was real stitching and what wasn't on some of them. So if you haven't got a machine please don't be put off, grab a pen and get drawing lol. There is a fab prize this week sponsored by The Glitter Garden and the prize winner will also be our Guest Designer for June.

My card this week is not only for the Just Magnolia challenge, I loved the sketch on Sketch Saturday this week that was done by Debbie and also the amazing colour challenge on Colour Create which is Red Cream and Chocolate and was chosen by my teamie Mina so this is a triple combo card.  I decided to use one of my older Magnolia’s – they tend to get really neglected when there are so many new ones that have to be inked up lol.

One again I got a bit carried away with the inside and carried the sketch through.

I hope you will visit the rest of the DT's blogs - their creations are simply stunning!!

  21. Stunning card Bev. Congratulations on managing to combine 3 challenges in one card! I should really try and give this one a go this week, it will give me an excuse to dust off my sewing machine. I've been a bit lazy of late and have been doing faux stitching!
