One more card before I go on holidays today. My loving husband was very good at packing the car last night, which meant that I had some spare time today. So I thought I would quickly make a card for the challenge. I must say that I so love using these magnolia stamps.

Firstly I need to thank Debbie P for doing some swaps with me this week, which is where I get my little baby and bird from. Thanks Debbie.

I have used bashful blue, whisper white and barely banana card stock. I cuttle bug the blue and put of some misc blue and yellow brads. Bashful blue stripped ribbon and Yeah for my new hostess set punches three. Which was a bit tricky to cut out, as I didn't buy the new oval punch. Never mind. Will put it on the next order.

I also cased a technique from the lovely Jenni Oliver my up line. By getting the distressed look on the yellow CS I used my so saffron ink pad and stamped directly on to the CS. Great idea Jenni. I know that I will use that again.

Thanks for looking

Travel safe this easter.
