Just Magnolias - Bev's Gorgeous Sketch!

Don't you just love Fridays!!
The weekend is almost here and now that means it is Just Magnolia's Challenge day!

And this week there is a GORGEOUS Sketch from our very own Bev!


For my card I went thru my Magnolia's and pulled out one of my favorites, Hubby calls this Tilda... the "hippie chick one", he thinks he is so funny, he names them. I colored her with my Copics and then cut her out and placed her on an oval cut pattern paper from BoBunny. All the pattern papers are from BoBunny, I love the fresh spring colors.For my scallop band across the middle I used a Martha Stewart border punch, I sewed everything down, and then added two small pieces of ribbon for the "x" I didn't actually wrap it instead ended it at the stitches. Pulled out some vintage pink buttons for my six dots. The flourish is cut with my Making Memories slice, with mini Prima flowers and adhesive bling for the centers.

The last thing I did was pull out my Flower Soft for her hair wreath, I love this stuff! Really adds a lot of depth and well it is just pretty!

I hope you will join in this week - again there is a great prize! A $25 Gift Voucher for Simon Says Stamp! You pick your own prize how cool is that! Also do visit the Just Magnolia Challenge site and see the fabulous creations from the other DT.. I still can't believe all the talent there in one place, and even more that I am there!

Have a great Friday!
