Friday Sketchers #69 & Just Magnolia Week 22


For this card I have combined the sketch for the Friday Sketchers challenge with a Magnolia image and some embossing so that I can enter the Just Magnolia challange as well. The image is "Tilda picking Flowers" coloured in using my Copic Ciaos. The papers are from Crafty Individuals Springtime collection and the octagonal paper has been put through a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.
The butterflies were hand made from a paper from the Springtime pad and embossed with royal blue embossing powder by Heat it Up. Everything else came from my stash. I really enjoyed making this card and had to get hubby's compasses out to make the regular octagon so I hope you like it enough to leave some comments for me to read.
Hugs,

  7. You are so talented, Fiona! :) I love the sketch and the use of the colors. Reminds me of little sketches I used to make in High School so many years ago and brings me a happy, melancholy feeling seeing this lovely card.

    Hope you have a great weekend! ♥
