Magnolia Down Under Challenge #20

I wanted to put a card in for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge but with a Father's Day theme and no Edwin or boy Magnolia stamps, I wasn't too sure what to do. I received a couple of new Tilda stamps on Friday and managed to colour a couple on the weekend which was fun so thought I might try using one of them. This ended up being a very quick and simple card, so I added a matching sunny boy container (which will be filled with Ginger Chocolate - my Dad's favourite).

I used Bella Bleu DSP layered on Very Vanilla and Kraft Cardstock, with Very Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon. The stamp was from the Occasional Greetings set.

We have wild weather coming in Victoria today (believe NSW and SA also have had a rough time), so to all having bad weather, stay safe.


  1. Just lovely Alison. The blue tones look so nice and your colouring is perfect! I'm sure your Dad will love getting such a beautiful card & gift.

  2. Fabulous set Alison, beautiful colours and colouring - your dad will love it I'm sure - and this Tilda almost looks a little like you - LOL

  3. Ooh, I like this one. Love the clean look of your card. And the simple layout does the job. Love the colour combo and you've coloured this adorable Tilda wonderfully. I like that stamp for the sentiment. Great job on the card, Alison. Ginger chocolate....yum.
