Just Magnolia, and Simon Says Stamp Challenges

Okay, one more post from me this evening....  I mentioned in my earlier post that I had lots of craft time this weekend, and boy did it feel good.  I'm ahead of the game, and had time to play just for fun!

I decided to join in on this weeks Simon Says Stamp Challenge "New Beginnings" and combine it with the Just Magnolia "Anything Goes with Buttons" challenge.  Funny, because Just Magnolia is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week, now just HOW COOL is that?

So I decided to create 1 of many wedding cards that I'm going to need to make this year.  Starting with the adorable Bride and Groom Tilda and Edwin from Magnolia.


I decided to skip using flowers on this card, and use buttons with ribbon instead.  I didn't want to make this card embellished to heavily.  Simply because I really wanted this beautiful image to be the focus.  The DP's are from K&Company, and Tilda and Edwin were colored with Copics, shadowing with Twinkling H20's, and of course to add some shimmer, I used Stickles on Tilda's gown and crown.  
Each time I look at these two adorable little people, it makes me remember back a few years ago when I saw Tilda for the very first time.  I had come across someones card, and fell in love with the image immediately.  From that point on, I was on a mission to locate a place I could buy these stamps.  Now days you can get them almost anywhere, and guess what?  I still get them. Tilda and Edwin will always be an important part of my stamping "history".... My first true stamping addiction!  ha ha...

Thanks for stopping by, and this will be all from me for today..... Tomorrow is Monday, and it's the start of another work week.  Yipee... oh noooo, I was being sarcastic.... I really would love one more day to spend crafting all day.  LOL

Wishing you all a Wonderful Week.
