Just Magnolia - Week 8, it's a sketch

jm-week-8-1 This week we have a fabulous sketch to work to, designed by the uber talented Rach. Really loved working with this one and it's one that I will use over and over. I love how the ribbon threads through only one side of the image, so different.  This week the prize up for grabs is some Copic markers, so make sure you enter to be in with a chance of winning the prize.

I decided to go with one of the older Magnolia's this week, it's disgraceful how I neglect my older stamps and how desperately eager I am to get my mitts on new stamps all the time. So I am determined (for now lol) to try and use at least one older stamp a week. Poor babies are so neglected. This image is from last year's summer kit, and to be honest I don't think it had even been inked up till now *mega blush*!!! jm-week-8-2

I went with punched flowers on this card (except for the green flower) and stamped the punched flowers with a teeny accessory stamp that is in the Simon Says stamp set Simply the Best.  Check out her sunburn bless.  No factor 50 for this little girl :(

The delish Kaiser papers are on the busy side so I kept the inside plain (pity I didn't do the same for the front, hey ho - I'm such a more is more kinda girl lol.

Recipe:

  12. This is beautiful, Bev! Love it.

    Must confess, I also have this Tilda sitting uninked in a folder... Tssk! I like your idea of using one old stamp each week - I really need to do that. Less stamp buying and more stamping, maybe? Hmm, not sure I can stick to that! :D
