Just Magnolia Week 8



Happy Saturday Everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and the weather is improving. I had some time last night so I decided to use the sketch from Just Magnolias and came up with this card. I don't know the name of this DP as I purchased 5 packs from our LSS and I remember it said "Dovecraft" and maybe (just maybe) the designer is Karen Knight? I divvied up the pack and gave away the icon sheet and kept only what I wanted. Anyway, the card base is 5.5" square and I used a light pink by Bazzill. I stamped "Tilda with Ponytail" with Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI white CS, colored her with Copics, then cut her out and used foam tape to mount her on the circle. I punched 4 butterflies with my MS punch, 2 each in CS and 2 in pink vellum, then I distressed the vellum edges and adhered them together with crystal lacquer. I stuck a stamen in this teardrop pearls I have for the body and antennaes. The "dream" is stamped with my VERY OLD Just Rite sentiment sent I got about 6 years ago! One of those self-inking little stampers which is now discontinued I'm sure, then I punched it out with my Marvy (yellow) scallop heart punch. The rectangle panel is Bazzill CS and another DP from the same paper pack. Thank you for popping in today, and I know I've been absent for about a week again, working on some things that I will post next week. Enjoy your weekend, and now I will start visiting all your blogs.

Oh I love this card! I really like what you've done with the butterflies! To make them so much more by adding another layer of vellum! So funny - one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments. And that is why we follow blogs. hee hee!
