Just Magnolia - Friends!

Today is Just Magnolia day and we are all Friends! The challenge this week is to make a Friendship card.

Friendship.... well that is a fun and easy theme - and always needed card! So I went through my Magnolias and found sitting Tilda holding a heart - perfect. I colored her with my Copics and then cut her out with my Fiskars kraft knife!
For my card I started out with a white card stock, then found a three pattern papers from my new K&Company stack "Be Mine". Really pretty papers. I inked the edges of the background paper, then took the other two pattern and used my labels Nesties for Tilda to sit in. She is sitting on a line in the pattern paper - worked out well. I gel pen stitched the edge of the tan pattern paper and Tilda is pop dotted.

I then wrapped the corners of the background paper with twine three times on each corner. I ran a piece of Organdy ribbon thru the Nestie label with my Stampin Up punch, oh and also a piece of the twine. Then added six pearl floral dots.

Instead of a bow.. cuz I just got totally nuts trying to make one that looked half way decent.. sigh.. just wouldn't work for nothing!! So instead of a bow I used a large Prima flower - gorgeous huh? Love those big full flowers! I then stuck a few Martha Stewart branch punches behind it for some greenery.

And then my sentiment... I have had this for a while now. Love those Micheal's clearance isles! I paid 99 cents for this one - and it is just perfect for a Friendship card! I cut out a square then used my Fiskars corner punch - the ticket corner, then inked the edges.

I do hope you will visit the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog and see all of the DT cards! WOW these girls just keep getting better and better! And a great prize again this week.

Oh and tomorrow is the Just Magnolia Monthly challenge... so do visit for that again. I will have two post for tomorrow and I will be back again tonight for a second post today!
