Welcome back Magnolia friends to our next wonderful challenge, another easy one.....


So, whatever Magnolia creation you're making this fortnight, as long as it's got layers, we want to see it!

We are sponsored by the fabulous Crafty Ribbons for this challenge

Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others.

Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects, or visit our blog they use nothing but ribbon.  
Go on, have a try... It's worth it !
