It's A Good Day... - Magnolia-licious 'Summer Fun Days'

Hello!

For my DT card, I've created this criss cross card.




I love this criss-cross style of cards.  I should do more of them.

These adorable Magnolia images I'm featuring were coloured with markers--I used my Letraset Promarkers and Pantone Trias--and a few coloured pencils to help with the shading.

- Shabby Chic Fence from the Shabby Chic Summer Collection 2008


- Gone Fishing Tilda from the Sea Breeze Collection 2013
