Just Magnolia Challenge

Don't you just love trying something new?! Well the Just Magnolia Challenge this week is paper pleating. I've never seen this technique before but it looks very effective so I thought I'd give it a go. If you'd like see the tutorial on how to do it you can find in on the Magnolia Challenge blog here.

For my card I used papers by Basic Grey. The two stamped images are both Magnolia's. The little girl I coloured in using distress ink and a small amount of Twinkling H2Os. I thought the distress ink would go better with the look of the papers.
Well so far so good on the weather front. Although we've been forecast more snow none has arrived yet. In fact I would even dare to whisper that what we have seems to be melting! Shhhhh don't tell anyone. It is still very cloudy but the optimist in me is hoping that it's just going to pass us by without shedding any of it's contents on us! Fingers crossed!
