Magnolia Down Under Challenge #158 Sketch

Good morning Magnolia Fans!

Welcome back to our next challenge. 
This week we have a fabby sketch to play with... 
but first, we have a brand new sponsor to introduce....
 please welcome The Ribbon Girls:
Mother and daughter Mary and Andrea have always crafted and found it was becoming more and more difficult to buy very small quantities of good quality ribbon, lace and buttons and embellishments at reasonable prices. We resented having to purchase a full roll when we only needed one metre. We love ribbons, lace and all things pretty and sparkly, so in 2010 we decided to open our own online store and make small or large quantities easily available to all crafters. Mary owns the shop and runs it on a day to day basis while Andrea looks after the Ribbon Girl Blog and Design Team. We only stock best quality products and offer products which we would personally buy and use ourselves.  We supply traditional, modern and vintage style ribbon, lace, twine, seam binding, fancy pins, tiny pom-pom and ric-rac trim, plain, striped, polka dot and sparkly buttons, narrow tuille, net and mesh fabric. We stock a huge range of charms, diamante spacers, gems, buckle slides, pearl and crystal flourishes, hearts, gems etc. We also offer a useful range of mulberry flowers, liquid pearls, glossy accents, glitter glue, sticky tape, wool felt squares, plus many other unusual and seasonal accessories and embellishments to card makers, stitchers, crafters, scrapbookers and cake decorators. We're happy to send small samples of ribbon, lace and twine are available upon request and if you are planning a wedding or other special occasion we may be able to offer special prices for larger quantities

Mary and Andrea are generously supplying this amazing Mini Makes Kit for a talented winner this week:

Thank you so much The Ribbon Girl!
