"Celebrate the Little Moments"- Magnolia

The pretty Magnolia on this card is "Tilda picking Lilacs" She is part of the New Magnolia "Chasing Butterflies Collection 2009". The sentiment is from Maya Road

This week the challenge for Just Magnolia is to have stitching on your card. I love stitching on cards!! I also used a sketch created by Bev - that she created for one of Stamp with Fun older challenges. Thanks for a Fabulous sketch Bev!!

I colored Tilda with copics, prismacolor pencils...and h20's.

The Tilda layer panel is popped up on foamy's. The lovely raffia lace is from Bernie....Thanks Bernie!!

Papers - GP white, SU groovy guava, dcwv...and card base and DP from Magnolia

Ink - memento black, bashful blue, certainly celery

Accessories - brad, flowers, raffia lace, tulle, MS leaf punch, stitching, spellbinders flower die.

It's very Cold and Windy here........expecting a little snow....Ugh!.... Mother's day was was pretty nice though. I had a lovely day!! I will be showing some of the lovely birthday cards I've received a little later in the week.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone!! and Thank you so much for your Lovely comments!!.
