Just Magnolia Week 27 & Friday Sketchers #74


Well ladies, another day another dollar. I hope all is well with you and that the creative juices are flowing freely. I am excited today because my grandson Jonathan is coming up from Solihull on his own for a few days before his mum & dad come next Tuesday. Should be a great week and a half ahead.
I am entering this card into two challenges. It is based the sketch for Friday Sketchers and the theme of "Bright and Zingy" for Just Magnolia. The stamp is Magnolia's "Dreamy Tilda" coloured using the old Copic Ciaos and the papers are from Basic Grey's Indian Summer collection - I love these papers but I must say that the middle paper with the curved lines makes it difficult to make things eye sweet.
The embellishments were actually bought in Melbick's Garden Centre near Solihull when Hubby and I were down visiting my eldest son and daughter-in-law (Lil-paper-pixie) earlier this year.
I hope you think this card has the necessary zing and would love to hear your views. Your opinions and comments are always valued. Have a good day crafting.
Hugs,
Fiona x

  8. Great card, and I love those flowers and fab colours. Try and get jon to make a card, I know he isn't making any now but maybe you and jon can do a challenge together and we can see the two different takes on the one challeng! Tell him we miss his creations and I hope he is well.
    Happy crafting
