Beautiful Day!

Hi there crafters, today I have a card I made primarily with the Magnolia Down Under Challenge in mind. I wanted to use my new Summer Stamp 'Waterlilly Tilda', and it just reminds me of such a lovely sunny day, which I think we could all use at this time of year!  Don't know what the weather's like where you are, but here in sunny Manchester - it's not so sunny. Although we do keep having a suprise sunny day here & there in the middle of October, so with that in mind...
...the song is 'Beautiful Day!'by U2...
...& here's my card...

I used my new Go Kreate dies to make the shaped card blank & sewed around the edges, I must pick up some better cotton - this one doesn't show up very well on my photos! Stunning papers are by Maja Design - how gorgeous are these papers!!!

Skin: Tattered Rose, Old Paper
Cheeks: Fired Brick
Haie: Old Paper, Frayed Burlap, Brusched Cordroy, Walnut Satin
Dress: Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet
