Friday Just Magnolias Day! Animals and Insects!

It is time for the Just Magnolias challenge! Today we are Animals and Insect crazy! I just love this team... so many wonderful ladies and wow the talent.. love how different we are all -

My card - I went with a image I haven't used in a long time - Love this Tilda riding her horse - I thought my new neighbor might like this one as a welcome to the neighborhood friend card -

Tilda is colored with my Copics - with a chalk background.
The papers are a Core-dinations card stock for the base and the papers are My Minds Eye. Love the vintage look and they are so heavy in weight.
I made a white fence with the Martha Stewart Border punch, then ran a brown ribbon across the midde. I cut a circle out of the backside of one of the pattern papers and inked it. The clock face is from Heidi Swapp - I placed a photo turn in the center with a gem brad. The sentiment is cut with my MM Slice - I got the new Words & Expressions cartridge ;0) was so thrilled to find in locally! And that corner metal embellishment has been in my stash forever!! It is from Making Memories and was so happy I ran across them the other day - forgot I had them.

The flowers are Prima.. with dark green Martha Stewart Frond leaves high lighted with white gel pen. Centers are large jewelery spacers with mini brown brads. Love how they POP on the card. I also doodle stitched the edges of the card and image with the white gel pen.

I really hope you will take a minute to see all the DT work at Just Magnolias Challenge site... wow they ladies really outdid themselves this week!

I'll be back in a while with a second post today... InStyle Blog Hop day! See ya in a bit!

HUGS and-
