Another Challenge Card - Just Magnolia Mina's Sketch

This is my last Challenge Card for 2009, its the Just Magnolia one, using Mina's Sketch. Ive used one of the new Christmas stamps from Magnolia and coloured her with my copic pens, then cut her out completely ready to mount on my oval. This was done with the large oval Nestabilitie dies, Ive used a yellow embossed card for the first one and a red card for the scalloped one. The circular sentiment is one of the Just Rite stamps and cut out with my circle Nestabilitie dies, Ive then used the larger scalloped one from red card for it to be mounted on.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of green card, and one of two papers that Ive used for this card, the designs are by Kaban called Seasons and they come on a cd. For the second layer Ive used a red pattern and mounted this onto red card, then Ive used a red ribbon to wind around the two layers and stuck it to the back of the first mount.
Ive then stuck my oval mount in the centre of this and mounted my cut out Tilda on top, then Ive used three Poinsetta flowers for down the edge around the oval and have stuck the greeting between the top two flowers, there wasnt room to put the fourth one.
