Just Magnolia Week #26


Good morning again ladies. I hope that you are all well out there in Blogland. Many of my favourite crafters have been under the weather lately so I hope things are improving for you.

This is my card for entry into the Just Magnolia challenge and gives me the opportunity to use one of my favourite Tildas, "Tilda with Dalecarlian Horse". She is coloured using my Copic Ciaos.

A wee bit of "Googling" tells me that the real Dalecarlian horse (pictured above) - the symbol of Sweden - is manufactured in only one place on Earth, in the little village Nusnäs by the Lake Siljan in Dalecarlia, Sweden, not far from Mora. Probably a piece of trivia but I thought it was interesting.
Anyway, back to the card. The papers are by Laura Ashley and the embellishments are all from my stash. (Hubby says my stash is merely an extension of Stampaholics in Perth). I enjoyed doing this card and I hope you like it. Please feel free to leave a comment - your opinions are greatly valued.

Hugs,

Fiona x
