Just Magnolia - Dawny's Sketch!


You guys wouldn't believe how amazing the weather was yesterday!!!! I stayed outside almost all day.  It was only 95 degrees and very low humidity and that is fantastic for Houston this time of year.

Dawny created yet another fantastic sketch for us to follow for this week's Just Magnolia Challenge. Of course you can flip and rotate and I did just that.


I used some of my favorite papers at the moment by Doodlebug.  I just love the candy colors throughout the entire line.   Problem is, I am sooooo careful about cutting into them.  I don't want to waste them. ha ha! So funny how we are about those papers we like huh?  Anyhow, I used this little cutie from Magnolia called Tilda with Wedding Gifts and she was colored with distressed inks.


I added glitter to the packages, around the image and sentiment. 


I made a little packge to cluster in with the flowers.  All my flowers are from Wild Orchid.  The large white one is a gardenia, the pink ones are Aster Daisies, and the little blue ones are called Gypsophila.  I think I am going to need all colors of these three.  I LOVE them!!!  The card is a little flatter with these flowers verses the roses, even though I still adore my roses! ha ha!

I almost forgot, I am entering this into the Magnolialicious Highlights Challenge blog.  A very Happy Birthday to Diana!

That's about it for me today! I sure hope everyone has a great weekend!  I know I will if this weather keeps up.  I can get back to my running!

Hugs to you all!  Dena
