Just Magnolias and Hanglars - Buttons, Bows and Blooms!

Sad Sad Sad day in our house... Today we loose one of the puppies. I hate it. But we can't keep them all. Can We? No of course not. Right? Man I hate this. But I know that the "new family" is going to love her. Sigh...

Ok it is Friday and that is Just Magnolias and Hanglars day, and this weeks challenge is Buttons Bows and Blooms. Love the three together! I dug though my Tilda's and found a girlie girl that I haven't used in a while. And of course I wanted her to have some blooms in her hands for the challenge.

Isn't she pretty?
 Tilda is colored with copics. But then for that shimmer look I painted over her dress, shoes and hat with shimmerz. Love that stuff. I love how real it makes the veil look.

Then I went to work on my card. For the patter papers I used My Minds Eye Lost and Found Madison Avenue collection. Really love all of the Lost and Found papers!
I punched a border twice with Martha Stewart's Cherry Blossom border punch. Then I wrapped with a pink satin dotted ribbon, with a "bow" - that is one. The I added three mulberry flowers above the Papertrey Ink Happy Birthday sentiment - "bloom" - that is two then I needed buttons.  I tried them everywhere, every size and color. NOTHING worked. So I just gave up and just used three tiny buttons on the bottom - ok... "buttons" that was three.  It needed more, so I went ahead and added a bit of bling - adhesive pink rhinestones on all the cherry blossoms!

Make sure to visit Just Magnolias and Hanglars and see all the DT's beautiful cards - then join us for a chance at another great prize this week!

Now.. I am going to go and love on a certain puppy - don't have much longer with Sweetie - so I want to cuddle as long as I can. I am thinking it is going to be a long weekend with the other puppy too... once one is gone, that other one is going to be really lonely in the puppy pen. I think I am going to have to let her out to be with her Mom, Dad and older Sister more. Floors clean up right?

Have a wonderful Friday!
HUGS and-
