If you were.. Friday sketchers

Hello my friend! I'm finally back, and even though we're still not ready from all the refurbishing in the house; I couldn't keep much more without making a card! So I chose one of the already coloured images and decided to make Friday sketchers challenge. I also saw another challenge which had bows and buttons as a theme. Will have to check which one was it, and if it 's still running will enter it for that as well. Will update the post when I do; but I don't have much more time to take part in Friday Sketchers.. so I had to blog this now! :)

Another angle of the card. I played a bit with Photoshop to make this effect! ;)

I used this gorgeous Magnolia for my card, and coloured it to match the Wisteria paper pack. I love the soft blues and strong purples together. I coloured her in my Distress inks, and then decorated the edges with a Rayher flourish stamp, which I purchased today :) I also added some flower centres and silver buttons, and a round Stampin' Up sentiment in the bottom. I was very loyal to the sketch this time, don't you think! ;)

For the inside I used another paper like the one I used on the front, and a piece of what was left of the flowery paper. I added some flowers, a computer generated sentiment in some nesties and some Bling- It from Basic Grey. In the centres ofthe flowers I used large dew drops from Robin's Nest. They look fab - always!

I'm off to have some sleep now. I hope that you're in good health and feeling fine, even though it's sooo hot.. at least here. I hope that you like it.. and that I'll hear from you, letting me what you think of my Maggie here :) You can find many lovely Magnolias and most of the things I used for this card at Roses on Paper. Summer's store is always brimming with so many yummies that I never tire using. I left you direct links, and by clicking on them you'll be taken directly to the section of Summer's store where you can find it. You can also find the latest Magnolia Pet Collection, which I know many of you are dying to ink up! :) I do so hope that i manage to keep up with some challenges, while taking the kids out almost everyday for their summer holidays! I do so wish that winter is here :) I hate feeling so tired with all this heat all the time!!

Last, but not least I wish a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my fellow DT members of Roses on Paper and Belles & Whistles: Peta and Jodi, which just had thier birthdays :) I hope you had a lovely day my lovely friends. I am two cards behind! yikes!! sorry girls, I'll make up!! :) Big bear hugs sent to you!
