Just Magnolia Butterfly

Hello All!

Welcome to the weekend! Yay! Hope you have some fun stuff planned. I'm getting ready to head outside to enjoy the sunshine. But before I do that, I wanted to share a card I made using some new goodies!

This card is for the Just Magnolia challenge this week which was to use a sketch by Mina. I loved the sketch, very easy to use and I just happened to get a couple new Magnolias in the mail yesterday so of course I needed to ink them up!

This is Tilda as a Butterfly and she's been colored with Copics and paired with my new BasicGrey Lemonade paper. This is such a sweet image and these papers are perfect for summer! Love this color combo of pinks and greens and yellows, which just happens to be the color challenge at Stamp Something this week too.

I used my Coluzzle to frame Tilda with a scalloped oval Nestie. The card stock is SU! Purely Pomegranate, Pink Pirouette, and Old Olive. They match perfectly with this Lemonade paper. I used grosgrain and stitched ribbon to create on of the sketch layers and the added a wire heart and flower charm. The final accents were some Prima flowers and button centers with some paper pierced and white gel pen faux stitching. The sentiment is from SU! Short and Sweet.

Thanks for visiting. Hope you have a fabulous weekend! See you tomorrow for a new Pile It On! challenge. Happy stamping! :)
