Just for You!!..Magnolia DT and Challenges

I made this card for the Just Magnolia challenge...which is distressing...I love distressing so this was pretty easy for me. I also used the fabulous sketch from StampArtic ...looks like I may be a little late with this challenge though.

This cute little Magnolia is from the "A Little Yummy For Your Tummy Collection 2009" and is called "AY09 Peachy Tilda" The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

The image is colored with copics under the prismacolor pencils and a touch h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please remember.....do not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

Ink - memento black ink, SU bashful blue, creamy caramel. Papers - GP white, Magnolia, dcwv. Accessories - flower (Magnolia), leaves, shimmerz, pearls, button, embroidery floss, trim from dollar store, ribbon (Magnolia), stickles, glitter.

The weather was Beautiful here today....in fact the last week has been lovely. Amazing for this time of year. I hope it lasts...but that is asking a bit much...lol.

Have a Great Day Everyone!!...Please Take Care!!...and Thank You for your Lovely comments!!
