Just Magnolias - Embossing!

Hi and Happy Friday!!! Yes it is a very Happy Friday... Felicia is doing much better and we got just over 2 INCHES of rain yesterday!!! And more rain predicted for today!

It is so dark outside with the clouds I over slept...even little Libbie over slept and she is my emergency alarm clock! When the sun comes up everyone in the house should be out of bed and ready to go!

Well would you like to see a card? Today is Just Magnolias Day. And today's challenge is Embossing! And when I "plan" to emboss on my cards I work everything on the card to match my Core'dinations card stock, today it was the chocolate box and pink card stock. I just love how once I run it through my Cuttlebug that pink shows through the brown... a little bit of sanding and wow... I just love it!

For my image I used one of the new Tildas in the Fall Stamp Club. I just love how girly she is, with her legs crossed, hair all up and curled, and that pearl necklace and bracelet. I colored with my Copics and then cut out.
For the card base I again started with a white card stock, then used the left over piece of pattern paper from my box yesterday. Love using scraps! I then placed my Core'dinations paisley embossed card stock on a piece of white card stock. I wrapped brown card stock with a pink and brown dot ribbon, with a punched border from EK Success. Tilda had to have something to sit on you know! LOL

I added three Mulberry roses, and then the sentiment "Hello" from Hero Arts... I think it is a perfect "girl friend" card just to say hi.

Please visit the Just Magnolia Challenge site to see all of the DT embossing cards... WOW just wonderful! And the fabulous prize this week is two sets of your choice from the amazing selection at The Cutting Cafe.

Hope you have a wonderful Friday... and that you have a wonderful weekend planned! Me.. hopefully enjoying more rain and loving on lots of donkeys! I'll be back tomorrow for Donkey/Libbie day! HUGS!
