Just Magnolia challenge card

I am loving the Just Magnolia challenges and this week is no exception. Bev has done a brilliant sketch for us to follow and I think it will be one that I will use often.
I have gone for pink and black for this one and I quite like the way it has turned out.

Don't you just love this Tilda? They are just a joy to colour. I have to get some of these stamps because this is one of the challenges I enjoy most at the moment. Bev was kind enough to stamp me up some Magnolia images so I could join in with the challenges as I don't own any yet, how great is she? She's not only a fab card maker but also takes the time to help out others with her knowledge and kindness and believe me she has helped me out so much since I started my blog, not just by giving me images but giving me loads of advice too. So Bev hun, this card is dedicated to you! Sound like I'm at an award ceremony lol, but you know what I mean ;P
Maybe some of us could do an image swap sometime? Anybody interested, let me know and we can arrange something. I don't have much stamps but might have something you want :)
Right on to the card. I don't have any oval nesties yet so cut the oval and the scallop around it by hand and the same with the scalloped border on the middle strip. I'm not sure who makes the striped paper but I got it from the lovely Stef for my birthday :) Thanks hun x
That's it from me for a bit but I will be back later because I just bought 10 new Dustin Pike images so have to make some cards with them!
Oh before I go, just want to say another congrats to Lorraine (Coldwaters) for winning my followers candy :) I can't believe how happy she was when she found out she had won lol. It feels so good to give stuff away, especially when it's to someone as brill as Lorraine who is always so gratefull for even the smallest of things. I must have another giveaway soon for all you lovey bloggy buddies :)

Hugs Lora

Hi Lora this is one of those cards that as soon as you look at it you fall in love. The colours are one of my fave combos and of course it goes without saying that I love this Tilda,in fact I had it delivered last week along with another one but as yet haven't used them. Thank you once again for the candy I felt it was such a special day yesterday when I found that I had won it was like a birthday but better. I would love to do some swapped images with you or if you see any image that I use just let me know and I will send some to you. I have loads of Tilda's, Sugar Nellie, Joanna Sheen, Serendipity, Messy Rabbit Faerie Song Art and many others (I have been collecting for some time now) lol. Just drop me a line and I will get some to you.
