Magnolia Challenge

Well now I've got my first Magnolia stamp I can enter the Magnolia challenges..and this is my first effort for the special monthly challenge'Frame it'.  I may have to invest in more than one stamp though or it could get a little boring - or I could see how many different looks I can get with just the one! Anyway, this time it's Alva with flower again and i've used the sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp too. 

I've stayed quite simple with this one so that Alva stood out as the focal point, no flowers or bows but I did have to have some ribbon! The sentiment is from the Penny Black set Critters Party, the pinky background paper is from a mat pad by K and Company but i'm not sure about the brown - just some I had in my stash. I hunted around for ages before finding the lacey bit and thought I would have to raid the underwear drawer for some trimming but then came upon this bit from an apron which
 came from goodness knows where!  I used Antique linen distress ink to add a more vintagey look and the magnolia tutorial made the pleating so easy, and with the little bit I had left I added the accent to the sentiment which was very fiddly but I was pleased I stuck with. Right to go and pick up the OH from the I'll say cheerio for now...back tomorrow!!
