Will You Be My Valentine at Just Magnolia & hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge and SWEET STUFF!!!
A very happy Saturday to everyone. I hope you are well into a marvelous weekend!! I would tell you that it's a "milk and bread at the grocery store" weekend because we are supposed to have a major ice storm on Monday BUT I don't believe the weathermen!!! lolol I'm gonna close my shutters and pretend I am in the Tropics!!
This week at Just Magnolia & hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge we are treated to a wonderful sketch by the very talented Donalda...and there is a great prize being offered by The Cutting Cafe. So come on over and join with us this week!
For my card I used Bazzill for the base, the matting is SU and PTI, and the DP is from the Made With Love Collection by Kaisercraft with one panel of PTI dots. All background panels were machine stitched. The bottom panel was trimmed with a MS punch. The image I used is the cute, cute Will You Be My Valentine from the You Are So Special Collection which is now in house at Magnolia-licious . She was colored with Copics and a little bit of Stardust Stickles for the lace on her dress and nosegay and cut out with triple Nesties. The floral treatment is 25mm Open Roses and Hip Rosebuds from Wild Orchid Crafts resting on MS branches. The little tag is a SU punch and the sentiment is unknown. To finish the front I used a 7/8" Light Yellow Organza and Pearls.
For the first panel on the inside I used the same ribbon and bows to dangle a heart and a key charms. and for the second panel the doily is a My Favorite Things die topped with Nesties and several pearls.
I hope you like my little creation and will drop over to the Just Magnolia & hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge to have a peek at the lovely cards made by the marvelous DT members and will join with us this week to use this fun sketch!
