Just Magnolia Week 48

Hi girls. Thanks so much for calling in to see my blog today. I really appreciate you taking the time. If you get half as much joy visiting here as I do visiting my regular blogs I will consider that a compliment.
Well the family have arrived for a 10 day break and this place is buzzing. Sarah and I are going to Stampaholics to a class today. Siobhan is showing us Resist Techniques. The men are going swimming (that should raise the pool level significantly). I am sure we will be out and about (as far as crutches allow) over the time they are here so some of my blogging may be spasmodic but I will try to keep up each day. I have cards made for a good few days ahead so I will still be posting.
I made this card to enter the Just Magnolia challenge where we were given a great sketch to follow provided by Jane. I have inked up "Sweet Tilda" and coloured her using my Copics. I have paper pieced her dress using the reverse side of SEI's "Juliette" I have used Bazzil as a backing paper but put it through the Sissix in a "Script" Cuttlebug folder. I also used it to make the flowers. The embellishments are from my stash and I have used Stickles and Glimmer Mist liberally over the card although it may not look it from the photograph. The embellishments are from my stash.
I do hope you like this card enough to encourage you to leave me a comment telling me what you think of it. I love reading what you have to say and value your opinions so much.
Well whatever you are up to today I hope it goes well and that you have a great time. Take care and go safely.
Hugs,

  10. What a difference it makes not having the designer papers as the backing, the red really stands out and the designer paper looks great as the mat. Gorgeous image and as always those flowers are outstaning, the stickles gives those a different look too. Have a great time with your family.
