Just Magnolia - In The Garden

Hi there!  Today is a new Just Magnolia Challenge and the theme is "In the Garden".  We have the awesome sponsor Wild Orchid Crafts.  Now who wouldn't want to win this?

We also have a new addition to the team Mindy! Welcome aboard girl!

This card was inspired by my hubby.  He says I do the same thing all the time so I asked him what I should do different and he said "create a scene".  So, that is what I did!  I really like how it turned out and will probably take his advice on crafting a little more. ha ha!

I really like this little Tilda she is good for so many different occasions.  Love her little turned in foot!!! You can find here at Simon Says Stamp along with most other Magnolia stamps.

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Magnolia - Tilda with Flowing Hair, Magnolia Tree, Magnolia Fence
Inks:  Distressed Inks
Paper:  Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage
Embellies: Wild Orchid Flowers, Ribbons, lace Ribbon, Stardust Stickles, lace flowers, pearl picks
Tools:  MS Branch Punch, Sewing Machine

So do you have any plans for the weekend?  We are just preparing for our trip and having dinner with some friends!  I hope you all have a fabby weekend!!!!

Thank you for visiting my little blog!

Hugs, Dena

I saw this card this morning Dena (UK time) and fell in love.... it's so, so sweet and pretty and has so much to offer!!
I laughed so much at your comment from your hubby too, mine says exactly the same that my cards are all the same..... but rather than ask for his advice I usually tell him to get lost!!! LOL!
Have a great weekend, hugs Tara xx
