Let's Celebrate at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge
This week at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge the theme for our Special Monthly Challenge is "Anything Goes". But this month we have added the option of adding ribbons to your creation. You can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice and as long as the main image on your creation is a Magnolia stamp you will qualify to be in the draw for the fabulous prize from Simon Says Stamp. And remember NO back linking, new projects/cards only please. The challenge closes next Thursday, February 10. So come on over and join with us!!!
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, the matting is PTI, and the DP is from the Be Mine Collection by Echo Park. The background panels are machine stitched. I used the darling little Birthday Tilda from Magnolia-licious, stamped her on XPress It Blending Card, colored her with Copics, adding a bit of Star Dust Stickles as well as Spica and Multi-liner for the candles, and placed her on double Nesties. The sentiment is from Friendship Ticket Sentiments to which I added some hot pink rhinestones. The lace I have used for the vertical was hand-crocheted by my grandmother before the 1940's and I know she would be happy to see me using lace that I saved from one of her table cloths. I wove 3/8" Bright Pink Satin ribbon through the lace before adding the three small bows. The floral treatment is made from Wild Orchid Crafts flowers: 25mm Open Roses, 15mm Open Roses, and a 40mm Trellis Rose, all resting on MS punched out rose leaves and branches. I also used a Pearl Heart Pin and 2 clear pins.
For the first panel on the inside I also used a 4 ribbon vertical with 3 bows. For the second/jotting panel I used a white paper doily and used ribbon and bow around the jotting spot to resemble a gift.
I hope you like my little card and will decide to join in with us over at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge. We would love for you to drop by for a visit to see the absolutely lovely DT Sample Cards this week!
