Card Patterns #8


It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood~Mr. Rogers

We're enjoying a beautiful day today, sunshine and a light breeze. It's wonderful to have the doors open and let some fresh air in the house!!!
I whipped up this little baby this afternoon, now we're headed out for some shopping! yeah!
I was inspired by the sketch on Card Patterns and used the color challenge from Loonie Stampers! The One Stop Craft Challenge was set by the lovely Paula, she choose 'Bling-tastic', who doesn't love bling?! I added rhinestones under the sentiment and sparkled the daisies and this Tilda's wings with glitter! The base card is MS papers and embossed (textile folder). My sweet Magnolia is colored with markers and pastels, cut and popped. Her lovely head rests upon a swiss dot embossed circle. The MS butterfly is layered for added dimension!
Fun!
I hope you're enjoying your day...prayers for peace, and overwhelming love to each of you! Blessings!!!
