All in a Row and Spring

Happy Friday!

Did you have a good week? It's been good but busy here, didn't get much time in for crafting, but hoping this weekend will mean a break and some me time. I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Today we have brand new challenges over at Just Magnolia and at Stamp Something. Sadly, this is my last official JM challenge as a DT member. I'm going to move over and give someone else a shot at working with this amazing group of women. I had the BEST time and I am going to miss them all dearly! It's a sad day for me but I have wonderful memories and the honor of having been given the chance to work on such a special DT. Miss you all already!

Our challenge today is to use this little bingo board and make your card accordingly. I've chosen to go diagonal from top left to bottom right and use Gems, Flowers, and Ribbon and Lace. Be sure to also include either a Magnolia stamp or Hanglar and Stanglar stamp on your creation to be eligible for the blog candy prize.

I've used some pretty Memory Box papers and have stitched the edges on my sewing machine. The layout is from this week's Mojo Monday challenge. I've colored Tilda with Copics and then embellished with sticky gems and pearls, roses, vintage seam binding and a vintage brad, lace, and a crackle paint finished chipboard piece. The sentiment is from the Birthday Letter Seals set from Whimsy Stamps.

Next up is my card for our "Spring Somethings" challenge over at Stamp Something. You can create anything you like with spring time in mind. I've made a baby card using the new Rainy Day Duckling image from Whimsy Stamps.

I colored my image with copics and then cut it out and did a second layer of the umbrella for some dimension. I also paper pieced the umbrella with the same papers on my card. Then used some crystal effects to make it shiny. The papers are Heidi Grace from my stash and I've stitched the edges on the sewing machine again. I embellished with ribbons, pearl ribbon slides, vintage seam binding, and a plastic pacifier charm.
