Just Magnolias - Ribbons and Bows

Hello and sorry I am so late today.. over slept, first time I took both feedings by myself last night and well... just didn't wake up like I always do. I am blaming Libbie - she always gets us up no later than 6:30am - I guess all of these night feedings have her schedule messed up too as she was still asleep to.. LOL

Anyway on to today's card-

The theme this week is Ribbons and Bows at Just Magnolia Challenge well that is something we all love!

I started out with one of my Tildas.. for some reason the Ladybug one just popped out at me. I colored her with my Copics and then cut her out with my Nesties. I then found a scrap of Papertrey Ink paper from one of my last cards sitting on my desk.... perfect for my Tilda don't you think? I cut a scalloped mat out of the red dots.My base is a white card stock, with a layer of red card stock then another of white. I then used the Fiskar's Threading Water border punch and ran Papertrey Ink Red Dot Satin ribbon through the holes, then tied a bow. Love how they match... all of their stuff matches so perfectly. I Doodled around the edge with a red Spica glitter pen, then decided it needed just a bit more so I punched out two corners and very carefully peeled up the corners on the bottom to add them.... yep I had already glued down the layers, but it worked and I like it.
I do hope you will pop over to the JUST MAGNOLIA Challenge and give the Ribbons and Bow a try and see all the other DT work... just gorgeous!

ALSO.... Today is the InStyle Blog HOP... I just fell so far behind this past week with Sergio I didn't get to join in today... but please do hop over to the DT's pages or the Blog and see all that they made... They really do such beautiful fun work, just made me sick I missed playing this time.

Thanks and see you tomorrow for Donkey Day....
HUGS and-

I just LOVE this card! I also love your blog. I am a follower and get to see your stuff every other day but don't usually have time to comment. I'm out here tho and enjoy it!! I was just wondering if you could tell me what Copic colors you used for her hair? That is such a great combo!
