Animals and Ribbons and Bows

Happy Friday!

Hope you've had a great week. Things were super busy here all week. It was our last full week of summer vacation before the kids go back to school and so we tried to sneak in every bit of fun we could! Now we are heading to NY to visit family and looking forward to a fun weekend. Hope you have some great things planned too!

Just Magnolia

Today I have both my DT cards for Stamp Something and Just Magnolia to share with you. First, is my Just Magnolia card with this week's challenge of ribbons and bows. We want to see you use both ribbons and bows on your creations and of course a Magnolia image.

I went for a vintage feel with this card. I love this sweet image, perfect for a lazy summer day. She's been colored with Copics and highlighted with both a gel pen and a Spica glitter pen. I found the sketch for this one at Sketch Saturday and paired it with some SU! cardstock in mellow moss and always artichoke along with some K&Company papers. This card has distressed edges, lace border punched edges, and has been embellished with gingham ribbon and bows, lace ribbon and brads, and some Prima flowers and roses.

Stamp Something

Next I have my card for the challenge at Stamp Something, which this week is Animal Somethings. Share a creation using your favorite animal image or images and you just might be chosen as a Stamp Something Top 5 or win our blog candy prize! Head on over to SS and check out the candy and all the design team creations using some cute Digital Delights images!

The design team was lucky enough to receive some images to use for our cards this week. I chose this sweet little lamb and colored her with Copics and then gave her a woolly coat with some liquid applique! What fun stuff!

The sketch is from this week's Lili of the Valley challenge, but I did change up the circle area on the sketch to a rectangle to fit my image. I used SU! white, baja breeze, and kiwi kiss cardstock with BasicGrey Urban Prairie papers. The embellishments are some felt flowers and pearls, buttons, and a piece of wide grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great day! I'll be back on Sunday with a card for the first Paper Maniac blog hop! Hope you'll join me! Happy stamping! :)
