Just Magnolia joins Magnolia Down Under

Just Magnolia has a fabulous sketch by Naoual this week and, Magnolia Down Under's
theme is "Flutter By Butterfly". How convenient I had prepared this particular image for Just Magnolia.

The papers are a download called Spring Romantic by Doreen Stolz from Digital Scrapbook art. Dragonfly Tilda is coloured with distress inks and to keep as near to the sketch as possible I cut around her legs and just left the square at the top (does that make sense - or am I rambling again??!!) I've dug out all my old border punches - this one is a Friskars punch/embossing one and I'd forgotten how nice it is. I decided to add a few stamped butterflies but couldn't find them (this always happend when I reorganize by stash) so used a couple of mesh one from very old stash and tinted them to match the papers.

I've kept the inside simple - I'm into simple insides at the moment.
Materials
BC - SU : BP - Doreen Stolz - Spring Romantic : Image - Magnolia : Medium Ranger Distress re-inkers : Friskars border/embossing punch : Sentiment - Inkadinkado : Rest from stash
