Just Magnolias - Mina's Great Sketch -

Ok, I really must have LOVED Mina's sketch for this weeks Just Magnolias, because when I made last weeks challenge card I had her sketch in mind and made it then - LOL so here is a new card with the sketch from this weeks Just Magnolias!
 See.. it is a great sketch huh? I started with a white card stock for the base, and then a scrap of Bazzil Dotted Swiss Royal Blue card stock for the mat. I found two scraps in my stash I believe they are Graphic 45 - love their papers and I save every scrap of it! I matted the blue and white table cloth pattern with red card stock - and cut two long strips to match the sketch - And then sewed everything down -

 For my image for the circle in the center I dug to the back of my box of Magnolias and found this Tilda sitting on a fence ... Colored with my Copics - and the used my Nesties to cut the circle and the red card stock scalloped circle mat. I VERY SLOWLY sewed around with a zig zag stitch. I added the sentiment, with a Fiskars Scalloped punch mat - and the three mulberry roses with Martha Stewart Frond leaf punches -
I hope you enjoyed my card and don't mind that I used the same layout sketch as last week.. LOL (really try this sketch you will enjoy it too!) Then go and join in on the challenge at Just Magnolia's!!! GREAT PRIZES every week!

HUGS and-
