Just Magnolia's with a fun sketch!

Friday again, and time for Just Magnolias, this week we have a wonderful sketch! And that was perfect for me this week..... no thinking, just follow the sketch - great timing!

I have really been trying to dig into my Magnolia box and pull out stamps that haven't been inked in a long time, this week I found one that had never been inked!! How sad is that! Tilda has been colored with my Copics and then cut out just her legs and feet with my Fiskars Fingertip Kraft Knife. (Do you have one? I love mine! I think it is one of my favorite top three tools!) I then cut the top like a window and used a corner rounder - doodled the edges and inked.

Now for my card I decided to go with fall leaves and colors for this Tilda and that was perfect as I had just come home from Micheal's and got the Making Memories 12x12 Autumn paper pack! LOL now the cool thing is I looked at this collection a couple of weeks back.. set it down and said... no be good, you don't need this. Was very proud of myself. Now why did I come home with it this trip? Well Hello... it was on sale for 75% off... I paid $2.79 for the entire collection! Bravo huh! I also picked up a few of the little embellishments from the Vintage collection as they were on sale too. Anyway perfect timing for my card.

The base and mat for my card is a new card stock for me... Martha Stewart card stock pack. Hey I had my 50% off coupon and nothing else I "needed" so I got this huge pack of card stock with some really pretty colors. Now it is a lot different from Bazzil card stock. Smooth, but I think I like it, and the colors went really well with the Making Memories Autumn papers.

Two different ribbons for the band across the middle, mulberry roses and Martha branch punches for my embellishments. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is punched out with a Stampin up tab punch.

Went together really quick and the sketch was a fun one to work with. I really when I started this card, had a plan to use these really cool skeleton leaves I have in my stash... but well so much is still in boxes, after nearly 45 minutes of digging I gave up. What do you bet I find them on top of a box this weekend now that the card is finished! LOL!

I do hope you will visit the Just Magnolia Challenge, the prizes are amazing and well the DT's cards are always so inspiring!

Off to start putting away craft stuff... :0)  Tomorrow is Donkey/Libbie Day ... then I hope to show off some photos of the craft room on Sunday!! That is my goal anyway! Have a wonderful weekend!

HUGS and-
