Hi ladies.. sorry today I have a bunch of photos to show. I wanted to have 1 shot of the this card to show that all though it is a easel card how flat it actually folds. I like to add flowers and other embellishments, so the card stands up nicely however the added bulk makes such a card always harder to wrap and mail.

I always loved Magnolia’s pretty tulips.. however the focal point image does get quite large, but it’s nice if you just want to go with a simple card layout. I think there is not much space to worry about adding layers. giggle.. thinking of Danielle right now.. we were talking in Ottawa about all my layers. I know it got in the past months a bit out of control. Smile

Other than that.. pretty simple. Around Tilda I used a Warm Grey 50% to make her stand out against the background but added carefully some blue, to freshen the look a bit.
The large tag was given to me by my friend Rosa A. for Christmas, I found it perfect to tuck under the ribbon, for personal handwriting.

Hi Claudia, I decided to visit a few people's blogs that I've not been to for a while and leave a note. Your cards are absolutely stunning and every single one is of such a high standard! I've recently found a bit of spare time to take part in challenges and writing my blog again, so I will have to come and play along with 'Just Magnolia'. Thank you so much for such wonderful inspiration. Stef x
