Magnolia Down Under DT Call and others

Hi everyone, well in my quest to become a DT member somewhere I came across this one. Kellie Winnell a very talented crafter is looking for a Guest DT member for a 3 month period. I love the Magnolia stamps but only have one which I won courtesy of Jude, it was one of her daily giveaways. So you know me I have to combine where possible so I have used the sketch from Sketch and Stash, my newest stash being my Magnolia stamp.

I coloured the image using my C'Aran D'Ache water colour crayons - watercolour this time. I added a bit of sparkle to the wings and the bobble on the hat with glitter glue. The image is mounted on gold miri card and the DP's are from Funky Hand - Funky Seasons CD Rom.

The buttons were from my stash and I tied some fibres through them for added interest.

There is also some brown ribbon across the middle which is one of Anitas.
The other challenges I am entering this card in are:-

The Pink Elephant Challenge - Fall,

By the Cute and Girly - Autumn Glory.

Kellie I have a few other cards I would like you to see - Dreaming Willow , Bubbilicious Celebration , Charming Snow Scene and Halloween Bling card.

I hope you like them all and wish me luck everyone, I have checked out the competition and it is tough!!

Oh Ali,
this is just tooooo cute! I absolutely love it, that image is just perfect. The colours and the backing paper are fab and those buttons really set it off. I have my fingers and toes crossed for you. You go for it girl. If you don't get something soon I will eat my hat!!

I'm sure you'll knock 'em dead girlie!!
Best of luck with the DT tryout - my fingers are crossed for you.
As a matter of interest, one of the blogs I am on the DT for is looking for Guest DT's, but I have to put names forward to them rather than the applicants try out for it. Are you interested? (by the way - you would have to use digital images for it)
Let me know if you are.
