Special Monthly Challenge Just Magnolia

Good morning friends,

The special monthly challenge at Just Magnolia is a tent card.There's a fabulous tutorial to follow to make this gorgeous card, hop over and have a look.
I am also entering the following challenges.
 Magnolia Down Under which is a recipe of 3 papers 3 flowers 2 buttons and 1 bow.
Cupcake Craft who's theme is flower power
Roses on paper to make something for Easter.

 I really enjoyed making this card although it wasn't without a problem. I stuck the front paper on, cut the apperture then realised I could see the folded piece in the window. No problem i'll draw the shape and trim it sorted. Then I stuck the back paper before the folded piece so had a pink strip on my cream dotty paper!!!something else showing in the window.
 One thing we crafters are good at is covering up mistakes, another paper that matched the colours cut with my Martha Stewart doylie punch, and as if by magic pink was replaced with a row of Easter eggs.
  I got there in the end love it so much  i'm going to make another one for a  challenge tomorrow.

The double sided flower paper is by Making Memories, garden party.
 My cover up my mistake paper with the eggs on is by Papermania spring time.
I coloured the Tilda with rabbit stamp by Magnolia with Copics and Promarkers
Flowers are from  Wild Orchid Crafts my prize from the just magnolia win they are soooo fabulous, I am so lucky.

The only problem with posting in the early hours is being tied and pressing the wrong key  it posted before
I wanted it to. I was getting it ready for the morning when I could take my photo. Aw well!!!

Love to you all
Cherie   //*.*\\
