Another Magnolia Easter card

An Edwin card for my dear husband,  Joe.  The chick paper is from the  FF Spring pack, which have been very useful this year, and the check paper is from my stash.  It didn't have yellow in it, so I added that with copic markers, and also to the sentiment and the flower edges.  I'm getting very flash now I've been on my colouring course, as it's given me more confidence to try new things!  The plain yellow paper is from the Farnborough exhibition, and is quite textured, but hard to see in the pic.  I wish I'd got more in other colours as it is lovely irl.

The stamps are Edwin holding basket, and also chicks from Sir Stampalot.  I have to say that their service is really good and very quick too.  The daffodils were from Hobbycraft and I  pulled them apart and put them back together with some little orange brads.  Some stickles glue completes the card.

Thanks so much for visiting today, and for any comments you would like to leave.  xx Jill B
