Especially for you! - "Magnolia" -"the Little Stamp Shoppe"

Hi Everyone.....I'm still alive....and almost back to normal. I don't get viruses very often....but lately when I get one....they seem harder to shake...couldn't be age could it?...lol.

I started this card last week.......I used the fabulous sketch Maria created for Stamp With Fun Challenge #16. This card also qualifies for this weeks Stamp With Fun Challenge #17 - which is a Pearl theme.

The Magnolia stamps I've used on this card are......"Tilda with Bunch of Roses" and the sentiment "Especially for you" ....both from the "Chasing Butterflies Collection".

Tilda with Bunch of Roses is also available at "the Little Stamp Shoppe" where you can also find numerous new items Heidi has been adding!!.... Check out "the Little Stamp Shoppe blog" too for Store news, Inspiration and learn more about the Sketch Challenge running till July 30th.

Tilda is colored with copics for base....prismacolor pencils and a bit of h20's to deepen the shade....*please remember to only use copics under prismacolor pencils .....never on top or your copic tips may be ruined!*

Tilda is cut out and popped up over the nesties layers. I've put glitter on Tilda's roses ....but it isn't very visible in the photo. I've also used shimmerz on the accent flowers and leaves.

Paper - GP white, DCWV, me and my big ideas.

Ink - memento, bashful blue

Accessories - ribbon (magnolia), flowers, roses, pin, beads, pearls, pearl string from dear Tina, stitching, shimmerz, glitter, spellbinders dies, paper doily.

That's it for today.......I will be back tomorrow with a Motivet card!!

Have a Great Day!!......and Thank you so much for all your lovely comments!!
