You Make Me Smile! Magnolia

Today I have a card..........Tomorrow I will be back with Blog Candy.

The photo of this card is a little dark.....my photo lamp fell on the floor and the bulb died. I have been trying to replace the bulb...but it looks like I will have to order it...so my pics may look a little odd for the next little while.

I used the Magnolia Tilda with broom stamp on this card...I think she is just the Sweetest!! She is actually called "VA08 Tilda med kvast" and you can find her at Magnolia in the Spring and Summer 2008 collection. For the sentiment I used Autumn leaves..."Ticketed" stamp set.

I used a past Friday Sketch for this card - "Friday Sketch #7" This fabulous sketch was created by Mumer from France. I am also participating in the nesties tool challenge at the new "Mothers and Daughters Creations" challenge blog.....Be sure to check this new fun challenge blog out!

paper - whisper white, Magnolia, wild asparagus, dcwv, basic grey, michaels

Ink - versafine black, bashful blue, creamy caramel, perfect plum, pale plum, ruby red.

Accessories - flowers, leaves, nesties, pearls, brad, cord, ribbon, lace, quick kutz flourish die, stitching, diamond glaze on broomstick, glitter, stickles.

I hope Everyone is having a great weekend!! Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments!! I will be back tomorrow with Magnolia Blog Candy!!
