Just Magnolia Sketch

Happy Bank Holiday weekend!! Isn't it a wonderful feeling having that extra day to look forward to? Might be nicer if the weather was more compliable and I could get the Barbie out but what the heck, I'm sure I'll find something else to amuse myself with! LOL!!!

At Just Magnolia this week they have a lovely sketch challenge designed by Bev.

And here is my take on the sketch. All those gorgoeus stamps I'd ordered last week have failed to arrive and I'm gutted so I have to go googling again later! In the meantime I'm still having fun with 'old faithfuls' and I made this card into an easel card. It's painted with distress inks and stickles. It's quite a simple card - when it's sat here in front of me it looks very busy, but when I see it on the blog like this, it seems a bit bare to me. I wonder if others feel like that sometimes, that their card looks much better IRL than on-screen?

And here's a side-view showing a glimpse of the inside.

Hope you like and thanks for stopping by my blog. Enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend and have a good week ahead! :o) xx
