Just Magnolia White + One

TGIF!!!  And that means Just Magnolia day.  This week our challenge is White + One, so white plus another colour for papers and embellishments. 

grey-magnolia1

The papers are last years leftovers (Craft Creations), I don’t think I will ever tire of this gorgeous paper.  The big snowflake is a Christmas tree ornament.  I saw it on Jacque's card and fell in love.  Next thing I know that sweet lady has sent me a whole box full of snowflakes in all different sizes. Thanks sweetie mwah x

The ribbon treatment is that old seam binding again, scrunched and wrinkled up with a brad popped through the centre of the bow that I tied on the Bow Easy that I got from Quixotic Paperie.  It makes tying double bows a doddle.

The flowers are all Wild Orchid Crafts, I used a Hellebore, a white 25mm hybrid tea rose that I spritzed with silver Cosmic Shimmer mist, and 15mm roses.  I also used some Crystal Stems and pins

grey-magnolia4

The image was really easy to colour, I used Promarkers.

Apricot, Oatmeal and Blush for the skin, Cool greys 5,4,3,2,1 and blender for the rest.  I then ran some Crystal Stickles around the papers and around her dress and socks.  The flowers didn’t get missed either lol.

Another view of that gorgeous snowflake – love it!

grey-magnolia6

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley – Christmas Circular Sentiments that I cut out with the small Classic Circles (Nestibilities) – the 3rd smallest in the set.  The border punch is Martha Stewart, I think this one is my favourite of all of them, and it was a gift from a special friend.  It was like Christmas in my house this week lol. xxxxx

  14. Good morning Bev,....oops it's afternoon already! Love this card, who says grey is boring! Not me :) I just made a card with a colour combination I would never choose (pink and yellow) for the new Magnolia Licious Challenge Blog, but somehow it does work!! Love challenges, they make you work outside your box.

  18. I love my Bow Easy! "It makes tying double bows a doddle" Now that is one expression I've never heard before - must be an English thing just like "I am chuffed"! LOL

    Love your card! You are so creative and an inspiration!
