Magnolia Down Under Challenge #65 - Lace and Flowers

This week over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we have a challenge after my own heart - lace and flowers - two of my favourite embellishments! I decided to take the opportunity to get another Christmas card made and I used some of the DPs I bought in America - but they weren't in a pad and I threw the packet away without writing down the manufacturer - will blame jet lag for THAT stupid mistake!!!!

I've used one of my favourite Tilda's from the 2009 Christmas release and also managed to play with my new Magnolia Doily DooHickey Die that just arrived from Tickled Pink Stamps. I know there has been some frustration that it's only half a die but it made me think that it could look great as a partial doily - even though Magnolia have put out a tutorial on cutting a full doily - which you can find HERE. I loved being able to cut my own doily out of DP. I did back this with a white piece offset slightly as it needed to stand out a little more.

I hope you can come along and play this week at MDUC - we have some amazing new DT members on board so the rest of us have had to crank up our own work and the inspiration from the girls is truly GORGEOUS! Check it out at our blog HERE.
