Magnolia Down Under #61 - A Recipe

This week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we have cooked up a great challenge for you - and here's the recipe you need to follow  - use 3 papers, 2 buttons and 1 ribbon.

I decided to pull out my Halloween Tilda from last year's collection as she arrived in Australia a little late last year and she's sooooo cute. The DP I used is from Magnolia and the 2 faux buttons were made using the same DP, some CS and crystal effects. The gorgeous sparkly spiderweb ribbon was a gift from one of my US crafting friends and fellow Burtonesque Doll - thanx Gloria - she took pity on me and our lack of Halloween goodies here in Australia and sent me a couple of spools of delicious ribbon! The sentiment is a sneak peek from a soon to be released set over at Tickled Pink Stamps.

There is some more AMAZING inspiration from the MDUC DT for you to check out over at our blog - HERE. Hope you find some time to play along.

xXx
