"Be Mine" - Magnolia DT

Is it too late for Valentines??....Ahh....maybe we'll just call this a Love card....the colors are a little non traditional anyway.....

I've used one of the new Magnolia Love Collection stamps on this card......."LC09 Be Mine" ...As soon as I saw this stamp I thought of this little Tilda from the Magnolia New Year 2008 Collection ..."NY08 Dreamy Tilda". She almost seems to fit on top...lol. I've also used Jacquelines sketch here from a past Friday Sketchers. Thanks for the great sketch Jacqueline!!

The images were colored with prisamacolor pencils (oms), twinkling h20's and a copic E00 skin white marker for the skin (face and hands).

I used the SU Paisley background Stamp and Sahara Sand ink to give the white cs a little bit of texture. (heart, white layer and scrolls)

Quick Kutz die for the scrolls. Nesties for the scalloped heart. Cuttle bug die for the corners. Martha Stewart punches for the foliage.

Shimmerz on the flowers. Glitter on Tilda's wings, lace, be mine lace, scrolls and brads.

Tilda and Be Mine are popped up with foam dots.....and then the whole heart for added dimension.

Paper - GP white, Michael's white, Magnolia CS, dcwv and Fancy Pants (sweetpea), green scraps for leaves.

Ink - versafine black, creamy caramel, garden green, sahara sand

Accessories - pearls. bling, ribbon, cord, flowers, brads trim, stitching, Cuttle bug, MS punches

Hm mm...my counter is getting higher and higher......Wow!.....almost 150,000 hits......Just about time to celebrate with some candy in the near future!!

We are on the road again this weekend.......we're going to visit my 90 yr old mother who lives almost 4 hrs away!....It will be so good to see her!!

Have a Great Weekend everyone!!......and Thank You for all your Wonderful comments!!!
