Just Magnolias - HOT - SPICY - SUMMER!

Just Magnolias is gearing up for a Hot and Spicy Summer!

I decided to go for a more summer theme card, and I would have loved to jump into Tilda's touring car and go on vacation with them! But no... I have been doing some late "Spring Cleaning" and getting organized, de-cluttering and cleaning has made one huge mess in my house! LOL but I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel :0) Or at least through the piles of junk and dust!

So I have colored with my normal Copics :0) And then found some fun bright papers that said summer to me for the card.
A bright white card base, matted with a deep red - then two pattern papers from My Minds Eye Glitter Home Collection. Lots of sparkle :0)

I matted the pattern papers and sewed everything down with a zig zag stitch. While digging looking for a pretty solid ribbon.. I found these two American Craft ribbons, they were just  toooooo perfect!!! "Summer" and "Wish you were Here"  - don't you think too great for a Summer Vacation card! 

Mulberry mini Roses and Martha Steward branch punches finish off - Bright.. Sunny and I think it fits the theme this week - So you going on A Hot and Spicy Summer Vacation? How about starting off by joining us this week at Just Magnolias? We would love to have you join our challenge, and again this week FABULOUS prizes!

HUGS and we will see you tomorrow for Animal Crackers!
