Just Magnolia challenge

Hi everyone, hope you've had a good weekend and enjoyed the lovely weather which now seems to have sadly disappeared. We had another good day out yesterday. First we went to Mountain Ash Crafts based at Halfpenny Green Vinyards in Staffordshire. They were demonstrating the Slice so I thought it would give me the chance to check it out. It is very compact and cordless so it doesn't take up much precious space which is a must. Athough it is so small its can cut up to 4" and does a good job. Didn't buy one, needs thinking about. Of course I had to buy something so I got some cosmic shimmer mists which look delish and another distress ink pad. From there we went on to a lovely garden centre called Ashwood Garden nursery, which I would highly recommend to anyone in the area or maybe visiting in the region. The plants are gorgeous and they offer lots of information which is helpful to not so savvy gardeners like me. Most importantly though they have a fantastic cafe, with the most delish cakes and puds which I did resist. OK I did not completely abstein I did succomb to a cheese and pickle toastie which I think must sent my colestoral levels sky high.

Right back to the plot. Here is my creation for the Just Magnolia challenge which this week required us to make a different shaped card

Base card Crafters Companion embossed pearl scored on CC Ultimate Pro. Image coloured with Whispers
DP is basic Grey
