Just Magnolia Challenge - Let's Get Sentimental!


Howdy, my crafty friends!!!! Today the challenge at Just Magnolia is "Let's Get Sentimental".  All you have to do is have a sentiment somewhere on your card. (You know that thing I always forget ha ha!) I was forced to remember it this time.

Wait until you see all the teammates projects! Gorgeous work there!


My card today was inspired by a card I saw on this blog, Heavens Created This.  I'm tellling you this gal can use those copics!!!  Anyhow, she did a little awning card and the first thing I thought of was this new cutie from the Bon Voyage collection.

My sentiment was very appropriate for my daughter and I, so I had her in mind when I made it and will give it to her at some point in time.  Since I am ALWAYS looking for a sale I had to add the little tag.  My daughter will totally get it!


All was colored with distressed inks and the papers are Imaginesce.  My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the yellow ones are actually white roses I sprayed with Gold Glimmer Mist!  Such a pretty effect!! I used the Magnolia Doohickey that I got from Magnolia-licious.

I sure hope you will get out those sentiments and join us.  This was a fun one!

Have a terrific weekend! Thanks for stopping by and letting me know what you think!

Hugs, Dena

  54. A lovely card with a lovely sentiment. I hope your daughter turns out to be your best friend. My Mum and I had many a shoppping spree together and they are among my most treasured memories. Unfortunately my daughter has become almost a stranger to me so things don't always turn out the way we plan.
