My inspiration...

You'll have to excuse the quality of these photos of my card but I was so happy with the way it turned out that I wanted to share it straight away. It's night time here so had to photograph it inside and I have downlights so there are shadows no matter which way I had the card.. so I'll try and take a better picture tomorrow... Anyway this weeks challenge at Magnolia-licious is an inspiration challenge..

As soon as I saw this I knew what I wanted to do and using this weeks The Sweet Stop Sketch it all just came together... and this is the end result!!!
So I took my inspiration from the tree and the presents and with these gorgeous kaisercraft papers and magnolia stamp, the rest just flowed onto the card.

This is the front of the card, it's 3-D. I tried to take a photo of it so you could see all the levels but just can't seem to to get the right angle!!

The Sweet Stop sketch has a spin this week which is to decorate the inside of the card!! I never decorate the inside of my cards so I kept this pretty simple but I think it still looks great!!

papers: American crafts and kaisercraft
stamps: magnolai Inque boutique'and papertrey Ink
colouring: Aquacrayons and twinkling H2O's
other supplies: kindyglitz and ribbon

Until next time, Enjoy!! xxx
