Where Flowers Grow


Woohoo!!! It's pretty much Friday in my book since the workday is behind me for today! LOL! I have another Magnolia card for you today featuring another cutie patootie, #371 Tilda With Flower Pot! She's from the new Butterfly Dreams 2011 Collection which is available at Magnolia-licious!


I am soooo loving these Spring Letter Seals I got from Whimsy stamps! They're gorgeous and go so well with this new Magnolia collection!!  Both Tilda and the sentiment were colored with Copic markers and then cut out and layered up with Nesties. I also used a Martha Stewart border punch and a Magnolia Doohickey swirl die which I love and use all the time.  The cardstock is Bazzill and the DPs are from Making Memories. All the main layers are machine stitched. I airbrushed some white roses from Wild Orchid Crafts to match the rest of the card and enhanced them with some branches from a Martha Stewart branch punch. That pretty little metal butterfly nestled among the flowers is one I got forever ago in a set from Michael's. And the bow is May Arts silk ribbon of course.


The inside is finished to complement the card front. I've had some comments lately from some of you wanting to see the inside of my cards. I find it really hard to photograph the entire inside of the card. The pics always look really funky. So if you have any suggestions, I'd be happy to give it a go! So that's it for me! I hope you have a fabulous Friday tomorrow, and that you enjoy your weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today,  and I hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!!

This is entered in the following challenges:

How pretty. Love that deep red.

Sandy said...

So pretty Sharon - your coloring is wonderful - love the colors on Miss Tilda and her coat is gorgeous. That lace looks pretty darn good too which of course sends your eye to your stitching. I think you probably color the best reds out there. Oh her hair is gorgeous. Boy, you always tease us with the inside of your card -- but it sure looks good from here! Your paper is beautiful!!
Hugs a bunch

GORGEOUS! I just love how you colored Tilda in pink and brown and gave her a nice "red/brown" hair. Your coloring always impresses me and no matter how hard I try to emulate you, I can't! I need to get more Copics! Overall, you always leave me so impressed with the paper selection, layout, embellies...so well put together!
Hugs, Cami

Eulanda said...

Aww Sharon this is so cute. Wow you did really well with putting the pink & red together. I have this image and you make me want to go color it now. Too bad it's my bedtime. LOL! Where did you get your sentiment from? I'm so bad with sentiments. Is that a print and cut or did you have to color it? Ok enough questions. LOL!

xxxtglxxx said...

I love this Sharon :) Gorgeous rich reds make this breathtaking. Love all the punches and dies, and your colouring is beautiful.

Knockout flowers, bow and charm too.
