Best Friends….

I’m back today to share my latest creation for Midweek Magnolia. Our new challenge is…

‘Let’s Get Sentimental’.
(Use a Magnolia sentiment along with your Tilda/Edwin)

I’m using the sweet Gemini Tilda image from the Zodiac Collection on my card today. For my sentiment I thought the ‘Forever Best Friends’ from the Animal of the Year Collection went beautifully. What better best friend could you have than your twin.
