Just Magnolia Challenge Card


Ive been rushing around today to try and get this card finished for the Challenge as Ive still got to pack our cases ready for our flight tomorrow. I hope it doesnt show to much my rushing to get it finished. Anyway Ive used the image of Tilda on a horse, and coloured it with my Copic pens, then inked around the edge with a red inkpad. After which Ive cut her out with one of the Rectangle Nestabilitie dies and used a Scalloped one for the mount, I then stuck them together with a bit of foam tape. Ive dont the same with the greeting.

The card was created using this weeks sketch by Mina, and Ive taken a few poetic licences with it, and changed the size in places as Ive used the larger image instead of a smaller one. The base card is a 8"x 8" white card onto which I have layered up a piece of red card and the first of four different patterned papers from one of the Nitwit Downloads, the second layer is a piece of lime green card which has been stuck down the centre of the base layer but with a piece of a different paper and some ribbon that was attached to the back of it. The third layer is another piece of the red card, and yet a third paper was stuck to this, and positioned across the middle.

I then stuck my stamped mounted image to the left hand side of this, and the sentiment below it on the left with some foam tape, to give them both a bit of a lift. I then created three flowers with my retro flower punches moulded them with my ball tool and with some punched out leaves Ive stuck them to the other side of the stamped image on the centre layer with some silicone glue. To finish of Ive stuck some red pearls down the edge by the top on the left and some at the bottom on the right.
I must apologise to Lisa and Poppy for not passing on the two lovely awards theyve given me this week, but unfortunately Ive not managed to get around to doing so, but will do it as soon as I can when I get back from my few days away, I hope you both with forgive me, and thank you again for awarding them to me in the first place. I also want to say that I will be thinking of you all working away at your blogs and hopefully will catch up with you next weekend when I can. So take care with love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxxxxx
