Finally my card for Just Magnolia

I made my card for this weeks Just Magnolia challenge on Friday just after the new challenge was announced, but have been waiting the whole week to get a pic of it because it has been pouring of rain here. I couldn't just scan it because I used some big flowers and they would of just got squashed. So yesterday the sun was out and I got the card and went outside to take a pic only to discover that my camera didn't want to work! All I could see through it was a real blurry image of my card and a big black dot in the middle of the screen! So I gave up and thought I will just have to borrow a camera from a friend to take my DT pics and would never get this card on in time for the challenge, but this morning I turned on the camera expecting it to be the same but it was working perfectly, and it wasn't raining so I managed to take a pic after all :)
The challenge ends at 10pm tonight so I've just made it :)

I got thsi image from my blogging buddy Lorraine and coloured her with my usual Copics. The sentiment is from a Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit set . The label mats that I stamped the sentiment and stuck Tilda on were given to me by Heather. I don't have these nesties but I want this ones soooo much. I used some distress ink around the edge of the large one and all over my sentiment. I also scrunched up the sentiment label to give it a more distressed look but it doesn't show too well here.
All the paper I used are from Stampin Up! as is the ribbon. I used a fiskars border punch for the scallops. Flowers are all from Tabby crafts except the little pink roses which I bought at the Works and the branches are from a Mcgill punch. Oh and teh gorgeous pin is from Tabby Crfats too. I am in love with these pins and large roses, aren't they pretty?

Here's a close up of that lovely flowers and Tilda.

Right i'd better get off and post this on the challenge blog before I am too late lol.
Thanks for stopping by

p.s If you haven't entered my candy draw yet, you still have time. It ends on Saturday and I have more goodies to add to the ones in the pic. Didn't want to push my luck with the camera today since it was playing ok for a change lol.
