MDUC22 and Creatalicious Challenge 2

Hi all again, finally got a chance to do these challenges today, must say the idea of a jigsaw came from my son, we were sat having our evening meal, discussing school etc and I said I needed to create anything but a card, Morgan pipes up a jigsaw (which we used to do when they were little), so a jigsaw it is, so have used this beautiful Magnolia stamp (lent to me by Emma).

This first challenge is the Magnolia Down Under Challenge #22, anything but a card and the second challenge is the Creatalicious Challenge #2 which is a colour combination, using pink or plum with burgundy and green and add, lace, ribbon or fibre.

So coloured our Magnolia image in Pefect Plum, Pale Plum, Bravo Burgundy and Handsome Hunter, used crystal effects on the boots, my new kindyglitz for the wings and hat. The used some Very Vanilla and stamped the flower image from my Stampin Up Good Egg set. Used dimensional to put the magnolia on the background.

Morgan then scanned the image and made it bigger, I then glued it to some very vanilla cardstock and cut into jigsaw shape pieces.
Not sure what to call the box as I made this up, using Stampin Up Cardstock, Handsome Hunter and Bravo Burgundy, with some organza ribbon I had. I have made the box so it could be hung on a Christmas tree as a decoration.
Thanks for looking, happy crafting, take care, Annette X:)
