Magnolia vs. Stampavie Sketch Challenge

Well, I didn't think we were going to get there this week but here's my card for the challenge at last. I've scheduled this post so hope I am not pre-empting the challenge being posted on the Magnolia challenge blog.

challenge 13
I originally tried this sketch on a square card but then the image was too big for the card so had to start again. I settled for a 7 x 5" card and think it looks much better.
magnolia-alva-challenge
Recipe:
Magnolia Alva image coloured with distress inks and H2O's. I also did a bit of masking and stamped the little mushrooms on as an afterthought.
Papers are K & Co Classic K Bailey
The flowers are a combination of Primas and some I punched
The sentiment is my hand written scrawl, punched with a Stampin Up Word Window punch
The zig zag borders are punched with a Martha Stewart punch
Pearls are from Sally (link in my sidebar) as is the gorgeous Martha Stewart ribbon that she RAKed me.
The charms and spacers are off EBay and the brads are the usual Papermania pearl brads. Heaven help me if they discontinue these lol.


Thanks for looking,
