Just Magnolia / Inspirational Sketches Challenges


Good evening everyone, been an eventful day in one way or another. Postie bought me aload more cards since this morning post, then had to take Jessica to Doctors with Tonsilitis and I think she's passed it on but am trying to push it to the back of my mind today. I managed to make this card for this weeks Just Magnolia which has a Pink/Green theme and Inspirational Sketches which has a gorgeous sketch to folllow this week. The backing paper is Bearly Mine Designs Extreme Vol 1 available HERE. My new Tilda stamp, (my favourite atm) which I've coloured with Copics. Not done black hair before so this really was trial and error, used 3 shades of grey and kept layering and blending. The swirls and leaves are done with my gorgeous punches and used my new Martha Stewart punch that I received yesterday. SU punches used for the sentiment. Really enjoyed putting this card together and love the way it has turned out.
I'm off out for a meal shortly, the village pub which is at the end of our road do the best food so hubby has booked a table for all of us. I have such a long list on peeps to thank, would take forever so will say Your Cards Were gorgeous and I'm a very lucky lady to have such wonderful friends, Thankyou.
Have a lovely evening and again thankyou so much for helping me celebrate my birthday.
