Spring Magnolia - So thankful!

Hello everyone!!

These Magnolia Chasing Butterflies Collection 2009 are such a lovely bunch!! I cannot resist inking them up! I had ablast working on these two stamps together. Spring Tilda is sooo cute and I have masked the butterfly background stamp from the same collection behind her! I think they really work well together. Do you think so? I had a blast following Sketch Saturday's sketch, and I really loved colouring my Magnolies so much!! I also used a miniture image on the inside! This is also good for the Basic Grey Challenge blog, which this week's theme was "Ice-cream.. be inspired by ice-cream flavours!" Mmmm choc... and cherry, amarenas!! Yum yum!!

I matted the image with the indispensable nesties! I simply love these tools!! I used the Bittersweet Basic Grey papers, they inspired me alright.. I think I will need an ice-cream soon! :))

To embellish the card I used hand-knitted flowers, and for the center I used a transparent button with silver centre, and the other one a silver button, to remain on the same colour scheme. I added a splash of pearls, a Prima flower centred with a Stampin' Up thanks sentiment and Basic Grey brad. On the inside I used coordinating papers I found as 12x12 from our local craft shop. They are from Papermania I think.
I distressed the edges, and inked up the edges of the pink panel.

I need to turn around the sentiment I bet!! lol

I used the same layout, almost repeating the sketch from the outside. Actually I did repeat it, just changed some elements, using fibres instead of ribbon, and other flowers. On the other panel, I stamped another Tilda, smaller in size, and used the bits of paper I had left.

My Magnolie would be happy to know if you like her, and what would you like to see more in my blog :) Listed below you will find the list of materials, also with direct links to those things that can be purchased from Roses on Paper. A big hug to you, and remember to show your gratitude to those who shower you with love and help you in all ways. Don't leave it for tomorrow!! You 'll never know if tomorrow will be too late!!
