My First Non-Magnolia...sigh

Happy Sunday everyone...I trust that you are having a magnificent weekend and I hope you enjoyed the Magnolia-licious Blog Hop as much as I did...that was a BLAST!!!! Shucks, I'm ready to do it again...aren't you? Maybe it won't be long til we have another one...yipppppppeeeee!!! Please join with us in designing your own project and be sure to upload it right HERE. I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

Note: This is the 51st card of my lifetime...I told my MM that after I made 50 Maggies that I would attempt something else--another kind of stamp. So Friday's FS card was Number 50 and here is Number 51. LOL

This is my very first non-Magnolia card and I'm not sure what to think about I had this card prepared way early using my sketch over on Friday Sketchers but since I had to have a color coordinated blog (self-imposed of course), I decided to make a Maggie card using my sketch for FS. For this card, I used Basic Grey Lime Rickey which is really a fun, bright collection. I also used Bazzill CS for the base and Prism papers for the matting. I also used a hÄnglar & stÄnglar image of the cutest little girl holding a bird house. She is colored with Copics with a touch of Spica for her buttons. There's quite a bit of stitching on this card and layers are propped up on dimensional tape. I used coordinating colors of narrow organza ribbon, a bird button, a pewter feather charm, and Lime Rickey brads.

The inside of the card is stitched also and on the first panel I have used a cd's birdhouse and a portion of the Magnolia Shabby Chic Fence from the Shabby Chic Collection 2008, both colored with Copics and embellished with FlowerSoft. I also airbrushed the background. Both panels use the same ribbons as the front. The jotting panel has the same ribbon bows as the front and the same bird button. What do you think my Swedish friends will think of her?

Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope you will let this little girl know what you think of her. I do appreciate your comments very much and I will be looking forward to the next time you visit. I will be back with my Maggies real soon!!! Hugs!!

Oh Jacque, this H&S card is just too precious and you're lucky you have this stamp/image because it is not sold in the US! This is absolutely beautiful and no matter what the image or brand, you can make everything just awesomely wonderful! Congrats on having made 50 maggie cards in such a short time LOL! Now I want to see more H&S images. Words just can't describe how talented and creative you are. I just love every card or project you have created. Hugs, Cami
