Yeah, Spring has finally arrived, we have had consecutive days of sunshine, the washing machine has been maxed out and the grass has had it's first cut of the year.  I love Spring!

So, it's Wednesday again and back to team B at Diva's for the latest challenge, which is...


So that's basically any stamp by the Magnolia company as your main image, including, Tilda, Edwin, or any of the animal characters they have. Simply to use a Magnolia die or design paper is not enough!

Now it's positively ages since I've done a Tilda card and all my Magnolia stamps are years old, but thanks to Mrs Laurie Magnolia, I now have more recent Tilda's - thanks Mrs M!

Sorry for the shadows - it's the sun!

So, my card, it uses a gorgeous Spring Tilda image, I've then used Tim Coffey, K&Co papers and Andrea Jayne, Hot Diggity Dog papers, Kraft, WOC flowers and some die cut foiliage (thanks Debs).  Colouring is by Promarker and the card completed with a PB sentiment and lagre pearls.

Sketch n Stash - 134 - A new image and old (very) papers!
