Hi everyone! Hope you enjoyed your weekend! I love long weekends, don't you? It's back to work today, but for three days only for me this week. On Friday I'll be enjoying myself with a weekend away with hubby over in San Francisco. But today, it's time for a new challenge from Dawny over at Papertake Weekly, and this week it's a sketch challenge! We're being sponsored by the fabulous Katharina at Whiff of Joy.
For my card today, I used this beautiful Magnolia stamp from Magnolia-licious. #301 Tilda with Umbrella from the Bon Voyage collection. I thought she was perfect for a shower card! She's colored with Copic markers and then cut out and popped up off the card front with dimensional tape. The frame she's on was cut with my Cricut Expression from the Storybook cartridge. There is no shadow feature, but using the Gypsy, I just reduced/enlarged the size twice with that little slider feature and voila, a shadow!
The DP are Basic Grey Porcelain line, and the cardstock is Bazzill. I created the sentiment with my MS Word program and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts with some added diamond Stickles and a couple branches from a Martha Stewart punch. The panels are all machine stitched , and I added a bow made from May Arts silk ribbon and an umbrella charm. The center border was created using a Martha Stewart border punch.
Please be sure to visit Papertake Weekly to see the rest of the fabulous creations by my awesomely talented design team sisters, then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and join us in the challenge for a chance to win a fabulous prize from Whiff of Joy! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
