Just Magnolia

Do you like Magnolia images? Have you checked out the new challenge blog "Just Magnolia"?

I have a nice little collection of Magnolia images so I plan to play along on a regular basis so each of them will get a little more ink time.
I'm enjoying the sketch challenges. They really make me think about the layout of a card and how it will all come together.
I'm generally a bit hap hazard when it comes to card making -I color the image before I choose the paper and then wonder why I can't get things to look as thought they match. I don't plan the embellishments either, and then get frustrated because I don't have the right colors. How much easier it is if you do a bit of forward planning.... which applies to many things, I suppose. So there you have it, not only a card, but a deep philisophical thought for the day!
