May Magnolia-licious DT Sketch challenge for Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes!
Good morning and Happy Tuesday! I love it when Mondays are done and over with! LOL! And one of the reasons for that is Tuesday brings a new challenge from Papertake Weekly! Now this month I combined my Papertake challenge with our montthly Magnolia DT sketch challenge. This month, the sketch is by our extremely talented and head designer Suzanne Dean!! This was a great sketch to work with Suzanne, Thank you!! Since this is the first Tuesday of the month over at Papertake Weekly, that means the new challenge is "anything goes" ! This months option is to use something round on your card (which was also included in Suzannne's sketch). It also means that we're being sponsored by the fabulous Lili of the Valley at Papertake Weekly!
For my card today, I used this adorable #214 King Tilda from the You Are So Special collection at Magnolia-licious. I don't see her in stock right now, but if you contact Diana, she'll be happy to help you out. I also used #594 Balloon Background and #427 Lazy Summer Flowers! They're all colored with Copic markers. For the paper lace, I used a Magnolia Doohickey Die.
The cardstock is Bazzill and the DP is from an old DCWV stack Nana's Kitchen. The ticket stamp and die cut is from Whimsy and are also colored with Copic markers to match the card. That beautiful lace on the horizontal piece is by Prima which I got from Bunny Zoes Crafts, and the ribbon is May Arts Silk which I purchased from Stamp and Create. For the circle portion of the card, I used a fabulous doily die from Cheery Lynn Designs! LOVE them!! And the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts of course.
You can see there's lots of dimension on this card, simply cause I love dimension. So instead of masking, I usually like cutting out my images and layering them up in the scene to give that nice depth. That background paper....well......I tried to used Cabio's fabulous tutorial for clouds but I failed miserably. LOL! I think I need to practice a little with that one. Cabio's always looks so perfect and makes it look so easy! :) I'm glad most of mine was covered up so you really couldn't tell just how bad it really is. LOL! And for those of you that have asked....
