G'Day Aussie Tilda

February 17th 2011
I have just made this card using my "Australian Tilda + Boomerang" from Magnolia Stamps for the first time. The new challenge at the Magnolia Down Under Challange Blog is to make a card using the sketch provided (which I have added below my card). I bought these stamps to make some cards and bookmarks to send to Japan to a relative of mine who is teaching English there for 12 months. So I have finally made a start!!!!! I think she's very cute sitting on her boomerang on the map of Australia which I made from thin cork along with the "G'day" sentiment in the bottom corner. I've had the "Australiana" paper for a long time and have never had anything in mind for it until now!! And to finish it off I have threaded two brown buttons with wool and stuck in the two top corners of the card.
