Thank You Magnolia Tri-Card

Evening Peeps,

I have been working on this project for a couple of days.  It's one of those that I have admired from afar, printed the tutorial a few months back with good intention but never actually got round to giving it a go.  So after seeing Crafty Cardmakers challenge this week of trying something you usually avoid or have never done before, I thought it time that I dug out my tutorial and face up to this challenge.  Although I am pleased with the result it has taken me the last two evenings.  I prepared the card base yesterday evening and thought it won't take me long to decorate tonight when I get in........... How wrong was I.  For some silly reason I decided to make my own flowers and after a further 3 hours later here is my very first Tri-card:-

 I have coloured Tilda with Copics and matted onto nestabilities which I inked with distress inks, just love those.  The papers are Bo Bunny, got a thing about these papers and colours at the mo, just fab.  I have used the Marianne Design Die for the swirls and the flowers are made from Bo Bunny cardstock with a little lilac rose placed in the centre.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with nesties.  Leaves and ribbon from stash.

I am entering my first Tri-card into the following challenges:-

Just Magnolia, At least two folds
Crafty Cardmakers - Something you have avoided doing
One Stop Craft - Paper piecing
Charisma Cards - Thank You
