My, how time flies. Can you believe I have been here in my new home for almost 5 weeks!
And my kitchen is finished (Yay!!), hence the tiling but my darling hub will work his magic and hopefully finish in the next few days (then I will post a pic).
 Today I made my first Magnolia card (haven't made one for ages) and I chose Tilda playing her violin. It is such a sweet image and you could use for almost any ocassion.
Here is Tilda and notice she is coloured without any lines:)
 I used the sketch by Bev from Just Magnolia because I liked the layout. I used kraft paper for the backing, and Kaisercraft pattern papers from the Gypsy Sisters collection (I love these papers). The music sheet is on clear acetate and that's from Hambly Screen prints. The flowers were stamped with a clear music stamp in black versamark and then distressed with Tim Holtz inks. I added some extra bling too...oh and some turquiose lace!
The inside of the card is decorated exactly the same, but without the stamped image or sentiment... 
JUST MAGNOLIA - a sketch for you
Thanks for looking! See you soon:)
