We're starting a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  Our new theme is 'Frilly, Lacy, Feminine'.  To get the complete details on the challenge and how you can play along, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.

Here's my DT card...

Inside the card...

I finally got around to using the gorgeous designer paper with the butterfly design that I've been saving up--paper's been discontinuted now.  And I've used my markers to colour the Magnolia images.
