Just Magnolia and Cute Card Thursday Challenge


Wow two cards posted in one day, you will be thinking Ive gone mad, but I finished this one just a hour ago so thought as tomorrow is going to be a big day for me that I would post this now. Its for the Just Magnolia challenge which has to be monotone colours, Ive used blue as my base colour, and the Cute Card Challenge is Midnight Margaritias, so Ive used this Magnolia image and masked her and popped a glass behind her.

Ive then coloured her with my copic pens and cut her out with my Label No.8 Nestabilitie die, drawn around the outside of the same size for the mount, Ive used a dark blue pearlescent card for this, I also used an appropriate sentiment stamp and mounted this in the same way, with both of these mounts Ive used a pale blue chalkpad around the edges.

For my base card Ive used a 8"x 8" white card and for the first layer Ive used a piece of the same dark card and one of three designs from the Bearly Mine Designs by Donna, and then for my second layer Ive used a smaller piece of blue card with the second paper design, for the third layer Ive punched out two scalloped circles and then cut another two pieces of patterned paper to mount onto them, though the top one isnt visable because of my flowers, but I did cut them and threaded some ribbon through the holes and stuck it to the back of the first two layers. I actually used a sketch that I found on the web, and slightly changed it. On top of this I have stuck my mounted image with some foam tape and my sentiment at the bottom.

To finish of Ive created two flowers from some of the papers I had left and hung a heart charm from the bottom one, and then mounted them both on top of some punched out leaves that I have stuck to the top right hand corner with some silicone glue.
