Sketch time at Magnolia Down Under

Yippee today is my first card as a DT member at Magnolia Down Under Challenges. I have to admit that I am slightly nervous and feeling pretty intimidated the level of work on this team is very high. Having said that though I am so chuffed that I was asked and am enjoying getting to know this talkative bunch of ladies.

So this week we have one of my favorite challenges, a sketch by the wonderful Kylie. It is a great sketch so I am sure you all with have no problems playing along with this one.

I have pretty much stuck to this sketch I just changed the position of the tag and flowers.

With all the hype of the upcoming royal wedding I thought that using princess Tilda would be fun sort of getting into the spirit!! I also went a bit crazy and decided that I wanted real stitching on this card and as I don't own a sewing machine I had to pull out the old needle and thread. It was actually quite nice sitting back sewing on this card although it is a tad time consuming so don't think I will be doing that too often!!!

So there you have it my first MDUC DT card...Be sure to pop over to the blog and check out the amazing work of the other ladies and if time allows stop by their personal blogs and show them so lovin.

I hope you all have a fantastic Easter and enjoy your day. We are spoilt in that we are loosing our kids for a few hours to my parents and will be able to go and enjoy an nice cuppa together.

I would like to also enter the card into the following challenges:
