Magnolia-licious May Sketch Challenge Card#2


I'm back again this Sunday evening with card #2 I made for the Magnolia-licious May sketch challenge. (See my first posted earlier, below.) But I'm not sure which one I will submit. This time, I used the sunflower Tilda...thought I'd "lighten up" a bit from the last "darker" card I made. I used foam tape to pop up my image and the sentiment.

Here's the recipe:

Stamps: Magnolia, Making Memories-Flower Patch (sentiment), Alota Rubber Stamps (background)
Paper: SU! pink pirouette CS, Basic Grey Two Scoops DP
Copics: Body: E50, R00, E00; Dress: R81, R83, B41, G40; Flower: Y11, Y15, Y18, YG23
Hair: E34, YR24
Others: Lace trim, ribbon, from stash, small flowers from Flora-Dec.
I aslo wanted to share a small tidbit with you that has made me very happy and honored. About a month ago, Diana emailed me and asked if she could post a few of my cards in the Magnolia store gallery. Of course, I was elated and said "Yes!" So, if you happen to shop at her store, you'll find four of my cards in the "Chasing Butterflies" gallery, and two in the "Easter" gallery. I am truly blessed, and have you all to thank for in constantly giving me a "booster" shot with your comments and support. I will always treasure the friendships I have made and thank you for sharing with me your talents so I can continue to grow. I wish you all a fabulous week ahead and thank you again, for stopping by.

Absolutely adorable! Your color choices are always perfect and your Tilda coloring is incredible! I am not at all surprised that Diana would ask for your cards to be in the gallery because she can spot talent and you have that! I truly appreciate learning your color choices on copics so I can grow. Hugs

Cami, I like both cards that you made for the sketch challenge. Both are gorgeous! I keep going back and forth, back and forth, trying to decide. Can't make up my mind. Why don't you submit both cards? I don't think you're limited to one only.

Hugsxx
