Magnolia-licious Design Team Sketch challenge for May

This card is now sold.
Hi everyone! I'm a little late in getting my design team challenge card posted this month. WHEW! What a weekend it has been. I feel like I'm running around like a mad woman. LOL! Hope you're enjoying your weekend! The sun is shining so pretty here today! Sorry I've been such a bad blogger! I'll hopefully get caught up in the next couple of days!!

This month, the sketch challenge is from the amazingly talented Becca! The sketch is posted over at the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog, and I hope you join us and play along for a chance to win a stamp from Diana at Magnolia-licious! I finally inked up this adorable stamp, #263 Princess Tilda that I received from Magnolia-licious. Isn't she beautiful! I was inspired to color her this way by the AMAZING Dena, when I saw her fabulous creation for Just Magnolia. This girl has some serious talent! So anyway, I cased her coloring of Princess Tilda with all the fabulous stickles, even though mine doesn't even compare to hers.


I also used some of the gorgeous chandelier glass garland from Diana. LOVE it!! It adds so much to a project! The papers are Nitwits, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the punched borders and twigs are courtesy of Martha Stewart punches.

The silk ribbon is from Stamp and Create and a dream to work with the Bow Easy! The flowers make the card too bulky for an envelope, so I created an envelope box for presentation of it. Please be sure and visit Magnolia-licious Hightlites blog to see all the STUNNING creations by the rest of the design team, and then please grab your Magnolia stamps and join us in the challenge. You just might win a prize! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
This card set is for sale HERE if you are interested. Thanks again!!!
