Magnolia Down Under Challenge #100

Welcome back my dear friends!!!  This week at MDUC we have a new challenge that really gets your creative mind thinking.


I'm so bad for getting into a pattern of creating nothing but square cards.  I need to think SHAPES and something different.  I think we get cozy in our creative ruts.  LOL!!   Anyway, I decided to alter a frame and I know it's been done a bazillion times before but I don't think I've actually done one myself.  I used this Tilda and tree from my Easter egg project.  hee hee  Reuse, recycle!! 

Be sure to check out the other amazing DT work at MDUC and check out the prize too!!!

I'd also like to join up to a few challenges:

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - "Anything Goes"
The Dutch Magnolia Chickies - "Summer"
Papertake Weekly - "Anything Goes"


Stamps:  Magnolia "Tilda with A Small Gift" and "Spring Tree"
Paper: Magnolia "Sweet Rainbow"
Embellishments:  Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and baubles, Maya Road heart chipboard and misc adhesive pearls.
Punches:  Magnolia Doohickey Butterfly, Scalloped tag, Heart Swirl and Fence.
