Magnolia challenge 37 ' on a budget'

This card is exactly what the title says and it's my first attempt at a rolled edged paper version.

The base card is slightly textured and subtle peach in colour.I've only used half of A4 (25p). The printed backing paper is from Shabby Princess Harvest collection (free downloads) (3p), the chocolate brown spots is from papercraft inspirations free downloads Go Retro range(2p), 3 buttons are from old cardi's, one mini gold brad from old QVC kit ( 5p), total 35p. The cost is quite little as it's not a large card and I've done with materials from home.

The front portion is cut slightly and I've just doodled on the part showing. the edges have been chalked in brown after using clear versa ink pad just to give colour to the edging, sitting tingla has been watercoloured and glittered on some areas, lifted with foam pads, she sits on a branch that i have drawn myself and watercolrd, (I wonder how she got up there in the first place), anyway swirls from Gunhilds stamps on the brown dotty paper, sentiment is from a cheap Tesco's stamp with a brad, 3 old buttons and thread from own stash.Hope you like and have a nice day!

This card is also going for the Cupcake craft sketch 6 challenge.
