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

Hi Girls, the sun is out but its still a bit windy and rather cold but at least its dry and it makes you feel a bit better than yesterday when it was so dull. Anyway todays card has been created for two Challenges, Just Magnolia's "Mina Sketch" and Stampin for the Weekend's "Ribbons and Bows". And Ive used the new Magnolia Stamp Club stamps that I received this week in the post.
The first one is Tilda, Ive stamped her onto white card then masked her to stamp the window behind her, then coloured her with my copic pens and some ice stickles on her dress and bow in her hair, after which I cut her out with my Oval Nestabilitie die, and created a mount from beige pearlescent card. The sentiment was created on my computer and printed then mounted on another piece of beige card.
The base card is 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card and a pretty paper that I found in my stash, the second layer is a piece of lighter beige card with a rose patterned paper stuck to it, this was then posititioned on the first layer. I then tied a bow onto two pieces of ribbon and attached them to the back of the first layer, after which I stuck my mounted image over the second layer. The sentiment was stuck across the corner at the top on the left.
I created a bouquet of flowers for the bottom with two white roses and one blue and some pearl sprays, these were then stuck below my image with some silicone glue, and three pearl studs were stuck at the top on the right hand side down the edge, just to balance up the card.
I want to thank you so much for all the enquiries about my health, Im now back in full swing and even back to swimming again, also doing my Wii Keep Fit jogging in the morning, mind you its a good job you carnt see me, as even my hubby smiles when Im jogging along with the little Mii people. Anyway thanks girls hope you all have a wonderful weekend, with love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxxxx
