Just Magnolias - A FABULOUS SKETCH by BEV!

HI and Happy Friday - that means Just Magnolias day! Today's challenge is a fun sketch by DT member Bev! I just love her sketches!

I again wanted to play with my new Fall Stamp Club kit and pulled out this adorable little Tilda with her bowl full of berries.

She is colored with copics, then high lighted with white gel pen. I then doodled around the edge for some fun.

For some reason lately I have been into these bold simple cards - especially when it comes to red and white. I just like the way to they pop when the are simple bold colors.
I also had a piece of green and white gingham paper on my desk from another project... (it will be shown soon ... giggle giggle.. ) I loved how the green checked seemed to match perfect with the country feel, the berries, and the red and white. For the scalloped bottom I went to my EK Success large scallop punch, and then did a second for the top of the band - kind of like around her basket I thought. The red dotted paper is from Papertrey Ink, as is the red card stock - love how their stuff is made to work together - the less I have to think the better! LOL

I added some white satin ribbon, and the sentiment from Stampin Up. And then just cuz I thought it need just a bit more, I doodled the edge of the red card stock with my white gel pen :0)

I loved working with Bev's sketch this week, and just wait until you see the rest of the DT's work with it! WOWSER! Really gorgeous cards! And don't forget their is a prize every week!

Well - as usual I am on the run again today - MIL wants to go to a local Quilting show. Hopefully we will make it as she has been a bit under the weather... so hopefully she is ready and feeling better to go. And then I am so excited that tomorrow is the CKC Scrapbooking Convention, me and a few buddies are taking a road trip and going to see what is there to see... SHOPPING! Oh and then Lunch :0) ... What do you have planned this weekend? Something fun?

HUGS and-

Your card is terrific! The colors and embellishments you chose for it are perfect.

I've fallen in love with your little donkeys. They are adorable! I can't wait to see tomorrow's pictures.
