Magnolia Summer - whatever the weather

This card covers two challenges, Joey has set the challenge 'whatever the weather' at Creative Card Crew and Just Magnolia's is 'Summer'

Magnolia stamp, Doodlebug Papers, Nestabilities, Copics, Papermania flowers

I really wanted to make a summery card as it's so gorgeous outside today but didn't have any particularly summery Magnolia images. So the next best thing was to use summer colours. Hope it's worked.

Image shaded with Copics and then cut out and mounted on oval nestabilities. The papers are by Doodlebug (just for a change!) and the flowers are by Papermania. I bought a few packets of them while back and this is the first time I've put them to use.

Zac is much better today, thanks for all the kind well wishes. He's napping at the moment so I'm expecting the doorbell to ring and disturb him any minute as we've got a cot bed being delivered today.
