Just Magnolias and Hanglars - Anything Goes with Maybe Buttons

Hello and WOW it is Friday again! This week has just blown by again! And can you believe it is April 1st already! Today is Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge, this week is our Anything Goes Challenge, with the option of buttons. For me this week I knew I wanted to use a Magnolia, I need to make sure and pull these out more, and I really enjoyed remembering all the image I have "collected" over the past few years, and this week.. this one caught my eye.
I love this Tilda with her little sheep. All but her one foot... that foot just really bothers me, it just doesn't look right to me. It is totally angled wrong! ;0) But I still love the image. I colored with my Copics, and then used a white gel pen to fluff up the sheep.

And then my card... it was all about using a new "toy" ahem... I mean "tool". Have you seen the new Martha Stewart Jumbo corner border sets? Oh my... totally in love with these! They make the most gorgeous... well doily looking papers. This one is called Wild Flowers. I punched it out of DCWV white shimmer paper. And simply placed it on a purple card stock base.
I then layered a scrap of green gingham paper, and Papertrey Ink Purple dot satin ribbon. I then pop dotted the image in the center. Then I went just a bit nuts with the adhesive rhinestones, yep on all the flowers... the centers are all different sizes of bling, in clear, pink and light green. This card has some real sparkle to it baby!
I tried to capture it with a photograph for you, but it really just doesn't do it. For my buttons that were optional this week I found two pearled white buttons and placed them on the ribbon. I added purple rhinestones in the centers. Love that!

My sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. A simple card to make, was really fast, but I love the look of the punched paper. I took more time putting all those rhinestones down than anything else! LOL

Now hurry pop over to Just Magnolias and Hanglars Challenge and see all the DT's creations and then join us for a chance at a GREAT prize!

See you tomorrow for some Animal Crackers!
HUGS and-
