Magnolia-licious monthly DT sketch challenge and Papertake Weekly - anything goes!


Hi everyone! Gosh it's been forever since I've posted! Things have been crazy around here and I've been lost in all the chaos! LOL! A couple more weeks, and then things should start to get back to normal. With it being the first of the month, it's time for a new sketch challenge from the Magnolia-licious Design Team. This month, the challenge was picked by Mindy, and she gave us an awesome sketch to follow! With it being Tuesday, it's also time for a new Papertake Weekly challenge which I totally missed last week! I was so bummed cause it's the very first week I've ever missed our challenge. But I'm back raring to go this week. And it's an "anything goes" challenge (with an option of using buttons) which is sponsored by Lili of the Valley!  For my card this week, I used one of my very favorite new Tilda images, #3032 Watercan Tilda from the new Sweet Rainbow collection which is available right now over at Magnolia-licious!  I also used the tulip pathway image which I can't find in stock right now. Please contact Diana at Magnolia-licious if you're interested in purchasing one.


I colored them with Copic markers and fussy cut Tilda out and popped her up for dimension. The circle sentiement is from Lili of the Valley and is cut out using Nesties.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the DP is Basic Grey which is matted with Bazzill cardstock. Plenty of machine stitching adds to the card, and I also used some crocheted lace and May Arts silk ribbon all which came from Stamp and Create.  So that's it for me today! Thanks so much for popping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
