Just Magnolia (and Roses too!!!)

I don't participate in combined challenges - not that I
don't want to, it's more a case that I'll see a challenge
and have an idea, so I'll make that card and then move
onto the next challenge site. I definately need to change
my way of thinking - combining challanges is definately
the way to go.

For this card I've chosen the sketch challange at SCS for
the first part of the combination.
I really loved this sketch - something different other
than all the usual layering of papers.

For the next part of the combination I couldn't go past
one of my favourite sites - Just Magnolia.
You have to love a site that asks that you use nothing
but Magnolia stamps - that's easy.
The challenge there this week is to use a charm of some
sort on the card. I've been waiting to make a hat pin
with my rose charms and it turned out to be the
perfect compliment for the rose stamp from the
Chasing Butterflies collection.

Another thing I don't usually do is decorate the insides
of my cards - no excuse other than just being lazy.
That's another thing I need to work on -
I love how a lot of my fellow card makers finish
off their cards on the inside, so this is something I'll
be doing myself from now on.
The Basic Grey pads are perfect for completing the
insides of the cards.
