A Sketch by Jay Jay

Good Morning!

Happy Friday to you! Hope you had a nice week! I've been very busy...we have some exciting things coming this weekend at Whimsy Stamps, so I've been getting ready. Be sure to stop by on Sunday at noon EST for our new release blog hop! And Crissy has been working on a very special project which I hope to have more information about on Saturday!


Today I have only one card to share for the new Just Magnolia challenge...I was a slacker and didn't get my Stamp Something card finished in time. Shame on me! The challenge this week at Stamp Something is Funny Somethings, so be sure to stop by the challenge site and join in!

For the challenge at Just Magnolia our very own talented Jay Jay has created a beautiful sketch, one that is very easy to use and will work with lots of different Magnolia images too!

I used this sweet summer image of Tilda picking a peach. I got her for Christmas this year from my friend Janna and I love her! She is a larger image and worked perfectly with Jay Jay's sketch. I've used some BasicGrey Origins papers and olive and chocolate card stock. The papers have been distressed and torn a bit. The image was colored with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen. I embellished with roses, buttons, and some ribbon.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Cute Daisy May: Flowers and Ribbon
Stamptacular Sunday: Friendship
Scrap, Stamp, and Doodle: Girly
Creative Inspirations: Distressing

Be sure to stop by Just Magnolia and Stamp Something this week and join in our challenges and to check out the Design Team samples, they are all gorgeous! Have a great Friday, happy stamping!
