and different again.... Try it on Tuesday

The ladies at our stamping club wanted to have a colouring session and as it was my turn to lead I thought the paperbag card is perfect for it as it uses so many images to colour.
Last Friday we went through few basics - I am no colouring expert that's for sure but have found as my confidence has grown that looking around blog land at what pleases my eye and making a note of it is very helpful to creating something.
I have also learned - especially from my pal Kerry that playing and practising is the most helpful thing to do so I wanted them to do just that.
Boy was I tough I set homework prior to the class and made them practice all morning before starting their cards - still they all seemed to have fun anyway!
This is my finished card - we used Magnolia stamps as they are so easy to colour when you are practising.
The theme over at Try it on Tuesday is Easter this week so its perfect for that too.
this uses all my favs on cute cards punches, glossy accents, buttons and ribbon and a touch of stickles xx
This card is for my Niece and Nephew - this siblings hugging image reminded me of them .
