Just Magnolias and Hanglars - A great Sketch with added Flowers!

It's Friday again! And that is time for Just Magnolias and Hanglars challenge. This week sure went by fast didn't it? This week at the challenge is a great sketch by fellow DT member Jacque.
With the added request to add flowers - either on your paper, or embellishments.

I pulled out one of my older Hanglar stamps - I just adore this little girl - is it the hat or the spotted bloomers? LOL I colored with my Copics and the shaded with my pencils. Then I pulled out some Rubber Tapestry Stump Stamps and stamped out some grass, flowers and leaves as if she was under a tree. Been forever since I have pulled out my stumps and used them - Love the added look they give.
My card - I used one piece of pattern paper from the K&Company Paper stack by Susan Winget. Wonderful papers - all in purples, greens and blues. These flowers reminded me of the stamp I used in the grass. And then that lead me to my flowers I chose. These are from the floral department at Hobby Lobby, really pretty paper and foam flowers on wire stems. I cut a few and tied them together with twine. The rest of my card I went with ribbons from Papertrey Ink and then the Jumbo Martha Stewart trellis punch. Which I punched on both sides so it could be used as a band. Yes... it took me a couple of tries to get it all lined up correctly and not punch through it. LOL

The sentiment is from Melody Ross -

Purple and Green is one of my most favorite color combos - This paper will be all used up from this collection I am sure! So now you need to pop over to the Just Magnolias and Hanglars Challenge and see all the flowers from the DT with the great sketch.

Off to catch up on a few things from the week - Hubby was home a few days, so I have gotten behind on my things I normally do during the week. We are building a new barn. HA... he would love the "We" - but I have been out there helping. The sunburn is proof of that. I'll snap photos of it as we get it going - so you can see the entire process in the works.

Have a great Friday - HUGS and-

Pretty card. The flowers remind me of sweet peas.
LOL I like the "WE" story. Everytime I tell hubby "WE" need to do something he says *Yay, right!* Such a grump. I do help, he just doesn't think it enough sometimes.
