Magnolia Down Under Challenges - Christmas Decoration

Good morning everyone I hope you are well. 

We have a long weekend here in Melbourne and lucky for my hubby and I my mum called late yesterday evening and asked if they could have the kids for the night and day.....ummmm let me think about that, yes, LOL! My kids just adore spending time at my mum and dads and hubby and I will enjoy a day together.

So this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we want to see you make or alter a Christmas ornament..I just love my new spellbinder floral ovals die and could not resist making it into an ornament for the tree. My hubby actually loved this so much he said I have to make more!

I played around with the colouring a bit....I used my water colour crayons and aqua pen and coloured the background around Tilda just adding lots of colours and blending them in until I was happy. I forgot how much I loved using the crayons...I then drew in some stars and dots to give it a little extra. The back of the ornament (in hindsight should have taken a photo of that) is just plain red and I joined the two pieces together with glue and an extra bit of card stock in the middle to make it stronger.

Now don't forget to stop by MDUC and check out the amazing works on show and to read about our very own Camilla's store who is sponsoring us this week. I look forward to popping by your blogs and looking at your creations. 

I am going to enter this into the following:

Midweek Magnolias - Anything Goes
New challenge blog Marvelous Magnolia Challenges - Anything Goes
Simply Magnolia - Sparkles & Swirls (her wings & stars are sparkly)

So that is it from me today. I am going to go off and enjoy this beautiful sunshine with hubby. 

Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxo
