Just Magnolia

Hello everyone! We have a wonderful tutorial for you at Just Magnolia by our guest Mindy.  She gave us such a great challenge.

I was able to use my new papers from Simon Say Stamp, the Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage Paper Pad.  I love them.  It was a little difficult cutting into them. ha ha!  The center paper piece is actually the music notes paper, but it got covered up.  My little Ballerina Tilda is also new.

Card Ingredients:

Stamp:  Magnolia, Ballerina Tilda
Paper:  Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage
Inks:  Distressed Inks
Tools: Sewing machine, oval cutter, MS Branch punch, bow maker
Embellies:  Rhinestones, Flowers from Wild Orchid, ribbon, stardust stickles

I decided to make this one an easel card and the saying says "Enjoy the dance of life".

Here's a little close up of the sweet Ballerina stamp.

I sure hope you find time to go check out the tutorial Mindy did, it is fantastic!  You are sure to love all the DT's projects too! Fun stuff!

Have a wonderful Friday and thanks for popping by to say "Hi".
