My first Magnolia

Good evening all! I've just been out to catch the last little bit of sunlight to take a photo of my card. This is the first time I've used a magnolia image, and sorry I dont know what she is called, she came to me in a fabulous RAK from the lovely Jacqui. I coloured her with my derwents, I was planning on getting some copics a few months ago but if you're a reader of my blog you will know I hardly use images like this on my cards. So I'm holding off until... I dont know when.
I followed the sketch over at All That Scraps Wednesday Weekly Challenge Blog... not my idea of an easy sketch, I found it hard to place all the layers so they sat right. I think I still missed a layer. The DT have some lovely work pop over and check it out if you have time!
I combinded it with the christmas theme over at Magnolia Down Under Challanges #27 which it's my first time entering any challenges there :)
aaaand there are 2 days over at 365 Cards this can work for, colour me with this (pencils) Day 266 and to use your own Handwritting... sorry cant find the day for that one! I thought it was recent but I cant see it hehe
Thanks for stopping by and I'd love any comments or suggestions on improvement for this card as I haven't really made anything like it before. Happy Blogging xx
