Just Magnolia and Stampin for the Weekend

Hi all been a bit quiet today but I will be visiting you all very soon. This is my entry for two challenges the first is Just Magnolia based on the sketch and Stampin For The Weekend which is a new challenge blog that launched on 5th June and they have set a challenge called 'Dusk to Dawn' using the colour combo purple and yellow. I have seen some fab creations using these colours and I hope this one is acceptable. I have followed the sketch but have used my new Nestie labels the backing papers are from Bearlymine cd the flowers I have just got from Fred She Said and have used Tilda with a couple of glittered sticker butterflies oh and I added some faux purple stitching to highlight the nestie and last but not least added a sentiment. I apologise for the clarity of the picture I tried taking it several times and this was the best I could get it. I hope you all like it hugs to all.

The colors are so yummy and the way you colored Tilda is incredible. The highlight on her bangs (fringe) just sets the whole thing off. I can't think of one single thing I would change. It's gorgeous.
