Just Magnolias - Bev's wonderful sketch!

Hello and Happy Friday!

It is Just Magnolias day and today the challenge is a sketch by Bev! Honestly.. this is no challenge at all! It is a fun sketch and you will love it!

For my card I decided it was time for Edwin to come out and play - I am sure we all have many more Tilda's than Edwin.. but really he is wants to play too!

I had fun coloring him with my Copics - and then adding in some grass with a Rubberstamp Tapestry stamp. When cutting the image, I decided that the net needed to pop out of the image! Love that!

For my card I pulled out those yummy Mariposa papers from DCWV... loving the butterflies and perfect for a boy with a net! I followed the sketch and sewed down everything with orange thread, to match the butterflies and the orange mat card stock. I needed a few more butterflies to pop off the card as embellishments, so I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch. And then used stickles to bling them up a bit! Butterflies do need some sparkle don't they?

The sentiment is one I got at a sale, love it! So me "Whatcha been up to?" LOL I can't read the maker... it sort of looks like deadbeat designs. Could that be right?

So now pop on over to Just Magnolias Challenge and see all the DT cards, and take a peek at the great prize up for grabs! Can't wait to see what you do with Bev's sketch!

HUGS and don't forget my BLOG CANDY link at the top of my side bar.. wink wink...
