Magnolia In Spring

Good morning, sorry I havent been posting much recently-I have been feeling poorly and I have been desperate to get back to my lovely blog! For this project I was inspired by the spring weather we are enjoying at the moment-one minute beautiful sunny skies and the next it is pouring with rain!
I coloured Tilda in complimenting colours with my promarkers, then found matching colours in these gorgeous papers I found in my stash-sorry the colours arent as vibrant as in real life but the sun seemed to lighten the vibrancy when I took the photo. I used little complimenting coloured satin flowers, and even stuck them within the pattern of the paper in the back panel to really tie them in. I also added a couple of butterflies, one wooden flying along the middle panel with a gemstone trail, and one 3D butterfly with another gemstone trail on the back panel. I placed the greeting 'Happiness be yours' by the butterfly on the back panel. Lastly I added three of the satin flowers with gemstone centres on the front panel.
I hope you like it!
