Today we're starting a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The new theme is 'Things With Wings.'  For complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog site.  Don't forget to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.

I've created a front-panel side-step card--template HERE if you're interested.

I do love fancy-fold cards.  This side-step style is one of my favorites.

Here's how I've decorated inside the card...

Here are close-ups of the Magnolia Stamps I'm featuring--love these two adorable Tilda's, again two of my faves...
