Just Magnolia's NUMBER 2!

This week for Just Magnolias it is a color challenge!
I love color challenges, and this one is a great combo...
PINK and GREEN!
First I want to say thank you to all of those that joined in last week! Wow I think I can speak for all of the DT of Just Magnolias...we were thrilled that so many have played along with us!
For my card this week I pulled out one of my new Spring Club Magnolias - I just love her... colored with my Copics all in shades of pink and green of course, and high lighted with my white gel pen.
For my card I started out with a bright light green card stock as the base, then the papers are from K&Company -love the glitter on the floral paper! WOW really sparkles! I matted it with a scrap of pink card stock and the image is matted with a piece of the green that I ran thru my Cuttlebug to emboss. I sewed everything down with some really cool thread. I so wish you could see that it is pink and green.. oh what do you call it... you know it is pink for a while, then turns to shades of green. Well it is really pretty and perfect for this card! LOl

I used a green butterfly ribbon across the middle - and then found these cute pink dragonflies in my stash... and I thought oh well.. they are cute not butterflies but cute. Then a couple of days later I found out that this Tilda is a dragonfly!!! How funny huh? I thought she was a butterfly, but then when you see the butterfly Tilda you see the big difference! I still love this one though, and now my embellishments go perfectly! I added 6 pink dew drops on the image and then the sentiment.

Do you love it or what??? While going thru my stash to gather stuff for a LSS garage sale (which I missed BTW darn it) I found a stack of some rub ons from Fancy Pants - I started to put them in the sale stack then saw this - and new it was too cute and fun for this card.
Make sure to go over to JUST MAGNOLIAS and see all of the DT's work - wow these girls are so talented I still pinch myself that I can "play" with them! And once again this week there is a great prize!!!
Ok.... I have to go and finish a project I have been working on all day - There is a blog hop later today... SO it will be a two post day for me - see ya a bit later :0)
