This image is what makes me fall in love with Magnolia.... Chef Tilda, and when I know there's Chef Edwin I was completely absolutely 100% sure... I must buy them.... both.
And Bev's Sketch really inspire me to set them both together in a card. They turns out really cute, specially with Magnolias DP.

I had a blast making a free standing pop up card for Magnolia-licious Highlites July challenge (they had a really good tutorial, I just alter the measurement a bit). I made it summer theme with lots of sunny color and yellow-orange flowers. I may had a bit trouble with taking a good angle for the photos.... :( This is what it looks like when closed,
