Magnolia-licious May Sketch Challenge - Warning - Long Post

Well, happy Sunday Everyone out there in blog land. I know, it's been a long time since my last post (project) but I've been busy and didn't have a chance to play. Okay, enuff ramblings. I decided to do my first Magnolia-licious sketch challenge, and then ended up making two cards, one with a rectangle focal point, and the other a square. Just like me, undecisive! LOL! For this card, I used Tilda from the Chasing Butterflies collection holding a basket of flowers. It's pretty straight-forward but the recipe is below, other than the Tilda stamp since I used only one hehehe.

Paper: CTMH pansy purple CS, Bazzill bling Tiara, Basic Grey Wisteria pad
Copics: Hair: E34, YR24 (same for basket); Flowers: R89, C3, YG23
Other: Sizzix "Frame" original die (doesn't have a descriptive name!), lace trim from stash, half pearls, EK Success flourish punch, a flattened "bead cap" to adorn the Prima flower.
I also added some tiny rhinestones to each of the flowers and on Tilda 's hair ribbon. I cut around the basket to have it outside of the frame while the rest of her is behind (inside) the frame. Well, that's all folks! (Card is 5.5" square.)

I love this Cami! I have always wondered how to use a frame on a card and now I know. I love everything about this beautiful Magnolia card. All the swirls and pearls are perfect. LOL! Didn't really mean to make that rhyme. Talk to you soon.
