Just Magnolia Strawberries

I have fulfilled a dream this week - I bought a paper making kit, something I've been meaning to do since I first made paper at primary school!! I made this Kraft coloured one out of a "McDonalds' paper bag". I then went through all my scrap card including my bins LOL and sorted the bits out according to colour. Using pinks and reds I made this gorgeous rose red colour paper. I love the bumpiness and the fact that some of the darker red bits show up. I then made a blue paper with silver foil bits in and finally used white card scraps and added some petals from my red Camellia flowers. I used some of the kraft colour on this Magnolia card.

The challenge at Just Magnolia this week was to make a card with at least two folds. Now I was going to be really over the top and make a never-ending card but they take sooooo long to decorate. So I went for this joy fold card instead, and went for a strawberry theme.
