I must apologise for using the one card for both challenges this week, as I of out tomorrow to visit my middle daughter and her four children. Im really excited about that as I havent seen them since June and although they only live ninetynine miles away it always takes us about three hours to get there, and Ive missed them so much.
Ive used one of the Tilda Butterfly images which has been masked and a background has been put behind her, I have used this particular image before but as I had it in my stash I thought I would use it for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge which is Bright and Zingy, which I hope it appears that way to you, and the Stampin for the Weekends Sketch. After colouring the image Ive mounted it onto a piece of yellow card with some foam tape. The sentiment is a Hero Arts one thats been mounted in the same way.
The Base card is a 8"x 8" white card, with the first layer being cut in two, with a yellow top halve and a lilac bottom, these have both been mounted on to yellow and mauve pearlescent card. The second layer is a piece of the same mauve card with a third pattern on, I should have said that I used the Bearly Mine Extreme Designs for this card, I also used two smaller pieces of the first papers to make up the two small square just behind my image. Im not sure if Ive not cheated a bit with this sketch as Ive made it square but I think the original is a oblong sketch, I do so hope it will qualify for the challenge.
I then positioned my stamped image in the centre and my sentiment to the right hand side at the bottom, and to finish of Ive created some flowers from some of the left over papers and then stuck a bee charm from the bottom one, and with some punched out leaves stuck into a circle and then the flowers popped on top. The last thing Ive done is stick some pearl brads to the top and bottom opposite corners.
