ROP DT meets Just Magnolia *2 at Friday's sketchers

Last Sunday when I went a day at my mum's, I took my Magnolia images, and quite a lot of my Distress ink pads with me :) I wanted to colour some images to find them ready when I'm tight with time. This lovely Tilda and her books were coloured in greens and pinks for the Just Magnolia challenge 2. I just love these two colours together! :) I coloured them seperately, then mounted them after I prepared the layout. I used Mumur's lovely sketch at Friday Sketchers. I love how much you can play with the sketch. In fact I opted to turn the sketch sideways. Thanks Mumur for the lovely challenge!

Detailed picture of the main image.

The sketch had quite a lot of circles as you can see, so I decided to use some flowers, and other hand-made embellishments with nesties and scraps of DPs. I distressed them and they look lovely, don't you think? :) What I left out from the sketch was the sentiment it had on the right hand side, but I used Swak stamp for one of the circles, and left the right hand sentiment out. I haven't yet decided to whom this card will go, so when I'll decide, the sentiment will be added there.

On the inside, I used the labels nesties, what was left of the green DP, and added half pearls and stamped those "heart-pins".
Many of the materials I used for this card, can be found at Roses on Paper store. You wll find the list of materials I used below, with direct links to the store's site. I wish you all a happy week, and that you appreciate your ability to make someone happy with one of your creations. Hugs xx
