Good afternoon everyone!!

Yes, this is my second post today...

This time I have my Magnolia Down Under card to share with you.

This week the challenge is:

Okay, I admit that my idea of transparency is not what the normal would think. LOL... For mine I have used 2 little transparent acrylic tags by Tim Holtz. Now just how is that for thinking outside of the box??
On the back of the large tag I have used Glossy Accents and glued my computer done sentiment.
The image is the cutest little guy!! He is an older Magnolia #119 ALVIN. He can be purchased at Magnolia-Licious.
I have colored this little cutie with my copic markers.papers used: Graphic 45, MME, dots is unknown, Bazzill cardstocks.
embellies: sheer ribbon, Tim Holtz Transparent tags, It's a Boy metal brad, horse button, buttons, dotted ribbon, lace trim, star diaper pin button, bakers thread, paper prima flowers, Fancy Pants stick pins.I have used my Spellbinders oval for the image.
I also have sewn my card and inked all of the edges with my Ranger distressed inks.
I have stamped on the outside of the oval with my autum leaves stamps and added stickles to the outside of the oval. A close up so you can see the details around this little cutie. Now you can see the close up of my transparent tags.
This picture is of the inside. Yes,I made this card special for Diana at Magnolia-Licious.
For the birth of her new grandson.
And of course this card is very late. The next two photos are close ups of the inside.
Challenges that I would like to enter my card into:
