Shabby Chic Magnolia Card

I have been having a play around trying to create more intricate backgrounds with my Magnolia's...here is what I did yesterday afternoon. I have used one of the new Shabby Chic Magnolia's for the main image and the brickwall. The clouds are from the Spring stamp club and the bees and butterflies and the heart are just regular ones from older releases. The sun is a Sugar Nellie. I have used Basic Grey "Cupcake" papers and American Craft ribbon and the sentiment is one from a set from Stampin' Up. To create the notepaper effect on the image I used a Stampin' Up punch.

I need more practice on this style of card....but will keep trying, but I am pretty pleased with my first efforts...have a way to go to match the skill of Kim, and other talented ladies.
