Just Magnolia

Hope you're all having a relaxing weekend - just doing what you want to do.
Yep, I'm all uptodate with the washing etc so got a little time to play!.....

I've made this card for the Just Magnolia challenge which was a sketch created by Mina. I must admit I've slightly tweaked it by making it into a easel card - hope this is still ok. My usual camera decided to crash on me so had to go back to an oldie - hopefully you can still see it ok!
This also fits the Magnolia Downunder challenge - masking

I'm always getting stuck as to what embellies to put on the card for a mans card - I tried some grunge boards - nah, then some flowers - nah, so plumped for buttons.
What is your favourite embellie for a mans/boys card?
Thanks for taking to time to look.
Hugs Sarah x
