Magnolia-licious DT Clean and Simple

A very good morning everyone,  It's time for a new challenge over at 

and for this fortnight we would love to see your CAS - Clean and Simple designed projects.  This wasn't an easy challenge for me but hey!!! isn't that what challenges are all about,  getting you out of your comfort zone and being a little different from normal.

I have ended up absolutely loving this card having used 1 sheet of paper, some washi tape and sweet Tilda in the Forest from the Christmas Story collection 2012 which can be found HERE over at Magnolia-licious stamps  along with many many more Magnolia stamps/dies/papers and of course not forgetting Diana's  amazing offers and other crafting goodies.  

Tilda has been coloured with Derwent pencilsoft pencils, paper stumps and sansodor oil.

I will certainly be making a lot more of these CAS cards for my friends this year.

Do please pop over and take a peek at the amazing creations my sweet DT friends have made to enthuse and encourage you to join in with the fun over at Magnolia-licous.

Our sponsor is of course our lovely Diana from Magnolia-licous stamps and much much more.  She will be sending our very lucky winner a special surprise package.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.
