Magnolia Down Under Challenge #45

Wow, was this ever a 'challenge' for me to complete.
Paper tole and cutting are NOT my thing! I can't believe the struggle and frustration I had making this card. And that's why they're called challenges!!

Magnolia Down Under Challenges this week has called for Paper Tole. Mount and make your images 3D.

This is a photo on the side so you could see the layers. Look at all that cutting out! My friend Jackie would be proud. Jackie is the 'Cutting Queen"!

The papers I've used are Webster's Pages available from Delicious Papercrafting. I've coloured Jam Tilda with my copics and the ribbon was a little find while at the markets this past weekend. It did come up a little bright in the photo though. The stamp is one I've had for a long time "Sending you happy everything".
Well if you're looking for a challenge this week, this is it!! Well it certainly was for me anyway!
Head on over to Magnolia Down Under Challenges to check out the DT girls gorgeous cards. They didn't seem to struggle at all! Bless 'em.
To all the Mums out there, I hope you all have a super special Mother's Day today. May your coffee be hot and toast not burnt ;)
Keep creating, Kylie xo
