A Flower for YOU at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge



A very happy Friday to each of you. I hope you have had a delightful week and are looking forward to a marvelous weekend. My little auntie is taking me to Atlantic City tomorrow for a few days to celebrate the wonderful news I received last week. So I am looking forward to our getaway!!

Today is a new challenge over at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge which is being hosted by Sara. She has selected such a fun challenge this week---PEARLS and SWIRLS! So we would love for you to come on over and play along with us so that you can be in for a wonderful prize!

For my card I used a darling little hÄnglar & stÄnglar image--one of my favorites actually. She was stamped twice on X-Press It and colored with Copics and Flexmarkers before cutting out one of the images to prop up for some dimension. The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is all from the Prima Sun Kiss Collection. I used a mint Organza Ribbon for the horizontal and tied it into a double flat bow centered with a Large Pearl Brad and placed it on a lovely Pearl Swirl. For the floral treatment I used a White Chrysanthemum, Cherry Blossoms, Sweetheart Blossom all from Wild Orchid Crafts, and some spider daisies from my stash. I softened the corners with Self-Adhesive Pearls.



The inside was left very simple because I wanted those lovely papers to show--just a couple of organza bows and part of a pearl swirl!

Thank you so much for coming by today and I hope to see you again real soon! Enjoy your weekend and be safe!! Sending big hugs your way!!
