Magnolia Vs. Stampavie - Week 17

This weeks challenge on "Magnolia Vs. Stampavie"
Was a very beautiful sketch by Carla
I absolutely LOVED this sketch and had a lot of fun
working with it.

This is also my very first time using my
new Tombow Markers. It didn't take long
to get the hang of it.
I only wish that the markers had actual color names
rather than just numbers.
I used Stampin' Up's Creamy Caramel to ink the edges
of my image and a little on the flower as well.
I Like the effect it gives.

I decided that I would make this card a Mother's Day Card
using my very FAVORITE Sarah Kay stamp.
I think my mom will enjoy this card,
especially since she loves these colors together.

The strange part about different papers,
is that the flower and the striped background paper
REALLY DO match the color of the pants that I colored.
But for some reason it doesn't show that when I took a picture.
Honestly, I really DO know how to match colors
I think the camera doesn't know how! LOL

Lovely card, Lynda. Beautifully coloured. That lace you've used is gorgeous. Lucky is the mum receiving this :)

I must admit that I had to laugh about you looking at the paper you maybe could have but that was one of WoJ's great stamps :) Now you can make a paper like that yourself.

Have a great day!

Hugs, Kristin :)
