I have coloured the image with my beloved copics! the DP is some ancient creative imaginations I have had for years! the flowers are from wild orchid crafts and I have liberally glittered them!and the sentiment is LOV!
I origionally made this card to enter the just magnolia challenge!! for some strange reason I thought it ran longer than usual and I had plenty of time only to go there this morning and find I had missed it!!! D'oh!!!

 I have made an easel card out of white card, I have cut my image out with some nesties and mounted onto dcwv glitter card,  . I have added a marabou feather for a bit of texture, the dies are magnolia, and the sentiment is Lili of the Valley.
Well as Karen herself says "you have to be in it to win it!!"!!! So I will have a try!!! One of the round is a public vote!!! GULP!!!!! so I hope you all like my attempt!! the deets can be found here
