Enjoy today with a maggie

 Which little cutie is this? Can you tell from just this snippet of the image? Today my BSB (best stamping buddy) came over and we stamped images of each other’s magnolias. After looking at a few challenges today, I decided to use  - Tilda with birdcage!


The challenges that I am entering are:

365 cards color scheme for day 34  Here is a look at the colors we had to use


Week 49 at Just M agnolia is requiring 2 folds on your card

Basic Grey has a sketch to follow  Here is the sketch that Martine created image

Now you know the requirements I had to comply with, here is my card creation:


I began with finding the paper for the color challenge. I pulled out my Basic Grey Green at Heart paper pack. Once the papers were chosen I colored in my darling Tilda with copic markers. I added scattered straw and frosted lace stickles to her dress, bow and the bird so they would shimmer. I cut the image and sentiment out with my Labels 4 from Spellbinders. I sponged the shapes with Versamagic Spanish Olive ink. Along with the BG paper, I used Marigold Morning from SU. To complete the sketch, I added buttons from BG and the middle one is from Tres Jolie. Isn’t the two toned button a perfect match? The flowers are by Prima with a couple Martha Stewart punched branches. To comply with the Just Magnolia challenge, the card is a gate-fold.

I have included the copics that I used in coloring my image100_1963

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
