Just Magnolia Challenge "Sentiments"

Good Afternoon Everyone, Im so sorry Ive been so lapse just lately but its been a busy time for one and that Im trying to get as much of my DT work done before we go of to Guernsey on the 15th Sept for a Christening, and I expect those that are on DTs know exactly what Im talking about and of course Ive had three DT Challenge cards on my blog this week. But anyway stop wingeing Shirley and get down to business, todays card has been created for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge "Sentiments" Im always on the prowl looking for nice ones and I love this one particularly as I feel it goes so well with this image of Tilda in her Air Hostess suit rushing to catch her plane. Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens then used Nestabilitie Die Label No.l7 and then drew around the die to create the mount for it, the sentiment has been treated in the same way.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and one of three papers from Kay Millers "Park and Play" digi set, the first paper is a blue background with clouds on it, the second mount is a spot paper on a white background in blue, green and yellow, the third paper is a blue stripe paper then across the card I have wrapped a blue satin ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount. I have then positioned my sentiment at the bottom on the right with the main image in the centre.
To finish of I have used some of the blue stripe paper and I have used a die namic flower die to cut them out and have rolled them and attached them to the card with some silicone glue on top of some punched fern leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

This is beautiful Shirley, I love the shine :)
Hope you're having a lovely week.


What a pretty card Shirley - love the colours and the layering - such a great idea to draw around the Nesties to create a larger frame.

Have a wonderful time in Guernsey - it's such a peaceful and naturally beautiful place, and so relaxing.
Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
