Just Magnolia – A sketch for you

This is our last challenge for 2009 – what a year it’s been.  We are so overwhelmed by the amazing support that the challenge blog has received, gotta love our Magnolia’s hey!!  Mina has done another amazing sketch – I really loved working with this, so don’t be surprised if you see the same sketch being used by me often!! 

Mina sketch week 36

I have gone with yet another Christmas card – I swear I will still be making mine on Christmas Eve!!!  And it’s another aqua one – I am just loving this colour at the moment (makes a change from my pink and green phase lol)

I have used Magnolia papers – these are just so yummy, if you have not broken down and got some you don’t know what you are missing.  I love the soft subtle colours and also the texture and vintage look to them.  The flowers are from yep – Wild Orchid Crafts which I have spritzed with Glimmer Mist.  I added a touch of broken china distress ink to the large rose – hmmmm think I was a bit too heavy handed there.  The little pearls dotted in the flowers and also on the corner of the card are from The Hobby House.  Both can be found here.  And did you spot that sweet little pearl pin – I was thrilled to bits when Jill sent me these, they are nice and small and don’t overwhelm the flowers.  You can find them here.

Have a great weekend, I will still be making Christmas cards plus I also have a huge DT project on the go which I can’t show for a month or so yet.

Thanks for stopping by,
