Just Magnolias - In the Garden

Hi - it is Friday and time for Just Magnolias!! And today is great challenge.. In the Garden! That means flowers ;o)  And we love our flowers!

Our sponsor this week is Wild Orchid  Crafts ... oh I just love this place!! Can it get better than getting a box in the mail and having it full of BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS??? Ok.. maybe chocolate, but I can't have that now can I? ... LOL   Seriously visit them, order you won't be sorry.. LOVE their flowers!

Alright I'll stop drooling over the flowers now and show you my card -

I started with purples - - - the flowers were my starting point - So all of my papers are following them, I went through my scraps and found two shades of purple simple patterns to use on my Bazzil purple card stock. Then I found a simple dotted lime green - Love purple and green together you know ha!   A band was made with the green with a Martha Stewart border punch - everything is sewed down.  I found a flourish of pearls, and layered it around the image - The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is matted with a Stampin Up punch. Oh and spare pearls  -
Tilda is colored with my Copics - and cut with my oval Nesties.. and scalloped Nesties  - I sewed it together -

And before I go.. lets just take a moment to admire the flowers... love them! OH and the Crystal Stem Chandeliers..... yes Wild Orchid carries those too at a pretty good price too ;0)

Now pop over first to Just Magnolias Challenge and see all the gorgeous In the Garden Flower cards from the DT - and then from there run over to Wild Orchid and start drooling over all the gorgeous flower and extras!

HUGS and -
