Just Magnolia 1st Challenge!

Hullo Hullo,
A happy Sunday to you all and hope you are making good use of the sunshine!
I would of been on my bike but one of my little darlings has left it round a friends house - why he would want to be seen on my girly purple bike is beyond me he must of been desperate!
Still no bike so snuck into my craft room for the 2nd time this weekend - utter bliss!
If you haven't already hopped on to Just Magnolia Blog then you are in for a treat you really should hot foot it over and see the wonderful prize you could scoop yourself by joining in the challenge where they have a sketch for you. If you love Magnolias this is the place to be!
I loved doing this card but funnily enough it is nothing like I imagined it last night as I was going to be using Tilda with Sunflower - but woke up this morning and thought Nah I think I will dig Edwin out as I always struggle with boy/men cards so thought I would give it a go and am actually really pleased with the end result.I have paper pieced his tshirt and jeans love this technique.
I am off to link it to their blog and have a nosey at everybodys cards before I hange my washing out on this glorious day.
Have fun in the sunshine
