Just Magnolia Challenge - "Two of a Kind"

Good Morning Girls, I hope you are all looking forward to a enjoyable weekend, or at least hoping that the weather is nice, anyway I want to wish you a happy one. Todays card has been created for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge "Two of a Kind", which means that you have to use two of the Magnolia stamps, and I have used this sweet Tilda stamp writting her diary and a envelope for her to sit. Ive stamped them onto white card and coloured them with my copic pens, after which Ive used my Label Die No.9 to cut her out, and then used the same die to draw around to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one of the Magnolia ones, one I thought was appropriate for his image.
The card has been created into a 7"x 7" Easel card, and Ive used the new Papermania Henbury Lane papers, in fact Ive used two of the designs for both the inside and the out. Ive also used a pretty piece of lace and some ribbon threaded through it for the front, and a strip for the inside Ive used my large Martha Stewart punch. On both the front and the inside Ive used the flower edge punch from MS, not so easy to see with the inside.
I then stuck my mounted image in the centre of the front page, and created a flower arrangement for the top left hand side corner with a beautiful big rose and several smaller flowers for the spray.
