One Card for Two Challenges - Just Magnolia and Stampin for the Weekend


Hi Ladies, hope you are enjoying yourselves with this fabulous weather, Im afraid I find it a bit to hot to sit out in so Ive been trying to catch up with some of my Challenges, and this one today is for the Just Magnolia's Janes Sketch, and Stampin for the Weekends "A card to make someone smile" I sincerely hope that this covers both of them.
Ive used this cute image of Tilda and coloured her this time with a combination of Copic and Promarkers then cut her out with my oval Nestabilitie Die, after which Ive used a pink catseye inkpad to distress the edges and a small peg stamp to stamp around the edges as well, Ive also done the same with the sentiment which is another of the Just Magnolia stamps. Both of these were then stuck onto mounts the image was mounted on a large Scalloped die cut and the sentiment just on a square of pink card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of pink card and one of three papers from the new Henbury Lane papers from Papermania, I think weve all fallen in love with these pretty papers and Im no exception. This first paper is a poppy one, and the second pink paper with a paler pink flower pattern on, and the third one is the pretty rose one. Ive also used two ribbons down the card and fixed them to the back of the first layer.
The mounted image was then stuck in a down position rather than across in the sketch and my sentiment was stuck at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive created a spray of flowers with this gorgeous poppy and then a few other flowers plus a couple of cheery blossoms to. The spray of pearls finished it of with a baby tears as well.

Beautiful card Shirley, so pretty and feminine, I love it.
I love the sunshine but the evenings are always the nicest I think when it's still lovely and warm but more bearable to potter about
love and hugs Mandy xx

Hi Shirley,
I'm finding it a bit too hot as well, although it was nice to sit in the shade and read for a while this afternoon.
Your card is stunning! I adore all the brilliant detail to it.

What a beautiful card Shirley! I love how her feet dangle. All of those flowers look so lovely! Sorry I haven't been commenting. I have been working on my new challenge blog. I finally have things organized so I can get back to visiting all my favorite places, like here!

Hi Shirley

A really lovely card.

Love it all but especially the sentiment and your gorgeous collection of flowers.

You sound like me Shirley - I can't sit out in the sunshine either. There are so many things I want to do that I struggle to sit still for very long. It takes me longer to get the chair off the garage wall and put it outside than the amount of time I spend sitting on it. Really not worth the effort LOL!!

Love Jules xx
