Just Magnolia #1...a sketch....Bugs & Kisses!!!


I made this card tonight for the first Just Magnolia challenge! They have a great sketch over there so if you love Magnolia stamps, as much as I do, then you need to pop on over there and play along!

I used this new paper that I picked up at Crop Circles in Peterborough the other day! It doesn't have the manufactures name on it anywhere, so unfortunately I can't tell ya who makes it but it is really fun brightly coloured paper and has a beautiful texture and is nice and heavy...really nice paper! EDIT: I found out who makes this fabby paper. It's by Die Cuts with a View and is from The Green Stack...I used Air Words and Wild Flowers!
I finally got my Magnolia Spring stamp set...let's just say there was a little issue with it! I owe a big, huge, gigantic thank you to my dear friend, Anki for all her help in sorting things out with my order!!! Thanks to her it finally arrived this week!!!! I was so super psyched to play with all the cute stamps!
The cuddle circle element is from The Shabby Shoppe and I printed it out on the computer on Prism Simple Smooth cardstock and cut it out then cut a scalloped circle with my Nesties to mat it!

I stamped Tilda on Prism Simply Smooth card stock and masked her and then stamped the butterfly grass with Memento Tuxedo black ink! I coloured her with my Copics and inked around the edges of the main image with Distress inks. I typed up the sentiment on my computer and printed it on Prism Simply Smooth card stock and cut it out with my Qk tag!
So, there ya have it!!! I am quite happy with how this card turned out and it was lots of fun to make and play along with the very first Just Magnolia challenge!!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!
Hugs,
