Magnolia Down Under Guest DT card

Good Afternoon!!!!!
It's time for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge
The challenge this week is *Olden Days* colour image/s in blacks and greays and whites. But have coloured pattern papers.

Now I tell you this stumped me for a while. I got my image coloured and then just wasn't sure what papers I was going to used with it. I struggled for some time but then it just started to come together. A very different kind of card for me but so much fun after I got going. I hope you will find some time to come and join the challenge this week.

I an so proud to be among some of my favorite designers as a guest DT for the month April. Make sure you stop by the challenge blog to see all of the wonderful inspiration this week.Card Ingredients........
