Just Magnolia Monthly challenge - August....


Hello,

Today is the start of a new monthly challenge for Just Magnolia. For the month of August. The challenge will be to make a 3d card. The amazingly talented Debby has given us a most fantastic tutorial which has been such a wonderful help to me so big thanks Debby.

Also this month's prize is a very generous $50!!! donated by our monthly challenge sponsor Simon Says Stamps how great is that!

I have coloured my Magnolia images with distress inks. The background has been distressed with tattered rose. I have also added stickles to Tilda and the butterfly for some sprinkly spronkly.



Here is the card from a funny angle to see the 3d effect more easily.



Thank you so much for looking and please go check out the other most gorgeous cards made by JM's dt!
