Just Magnolia - A Sketch

Happy Friday Morning!

Hope you had a great week! It's been getting warmer and warmer and starting to feel like Spring around here, but today it's a bit colder and this weekend it's suppose to rain. I suppose we can't have great weather every day. Hopefully the warmth will return soon.

I have my Just Magnolia card to share with you now and then I will be back in a little bit with my Stamp Something card and a special treat! Our challenge at Just Magnolia this week is a sketch by the mega talented Bev! It's a simple to use sketch that can be left plain or dressed up! I know for sure I will use it again and again!

I went with dressing my card up a bit! I used some new papers from Stampin' Up! called Bella Bleu with blue and white card stock. I also stitched the edges on each layer with the sewing machine. I dragged the machine out the other day and have been having lots of fun using it. You will be seeing more cards with stitching for sure! I colored this sweet Tilda with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen. I cut her out and sat her in the frame created with Nesties. I've embellished with sticky gems, Prima flowers, roses, and cherry blossoms. The sentiment is from the Oval Snippets set available at Whimsy Stamps.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Cute Card Thursday: Celebrations
Kaboodle Doodles: Happy Birthday
Pile It On!: One color + one neutral

Please hop on over to Just Magnolia and check out all the fabulous creations that my fellow design team members created this week with Bev's easy to use sketch! I hope you'll join in the fun too and play along!

Be back in just a bit!

Happy Stamping,
