Just Magnolia Sketch

Happy Friday All!

Hope you've had a nice week. It's been hot here so we've been enjoying the A/C and pool! Hoping for a bit of a cool down soon, but not sure that will be happening.

Today I have my card for Just Magnolia to share with you. This week our challenge is a fabby sketch by the super talented Bev. As always you must also use a Magnolia stamp on your creation to be eligible for the blog candy prize.

Sadly, I think this heat has stolen my mojo! I am just not 100% happy with anything I've created lately. Does that happen to you?? I had high hopes for this card, but it didn't turn out the way I had planned. I loved working with Bev's sketch, but the colors look rather holiday-ish and that was not my intention. Anywho! I've used some Magnolia papers with this sweet Tilda with Tag stamp. I've colored with copics. The papers have been distressed and stitched on the sewing machine and I also added lots of Stickles to the edges too. I embellished with flowers, ribbon, and ribbon slides.

The sentiment is a sneak peek at a brand new set from Whimsy Stamps which will release on Monday, July 19th. It's called Birthday Letter Seals and I love it! Be sure to stop by on Monday for our new release blog hop and a chance to win all the new rubber stamps!

Have a great weekend!

Happy Stamping,
