Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar Challenge

SOLD
Howdy everybody! Just a little update.  I am writing this on Thursday and we are expecting snow today!  OMG!!! The schools are closed for tomorrow for inclement weather. hahah! Now, I know all you guys in the northern states are laughing at us, but seriously no one would know how to drive in snow here (unless you are from up north).  It is supposed to be very icy.  
I will tell you that I have been a very productive crafter the last few days. haha! You will see some of that very soon, but for now I need to tell you about our Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar challenge.  This week is the Monthy Special of "Anything Goes" with the option of RIBBON!!  Heeeellllloo! I can handle that!  As usual you are going to LOVE what the DT have come up with!

This card may take a while to explain.  

Stamps:  Magnolia -Tilda With Heart Rubber Stamp from All That Scraps,   LOTV Circle Sentiment
Inks:  Copics
Paper:  Bo Bunny
Embellies:  Wild Orchid Crafts 25mm Curly Wild Roses,  red gypsophilia, and pink rosebuds, Guipure Lace, Heart Pearl
Tools:  MS Pine Branch punch, MS Double Loop Edger, Circle Scallop nesties

Now, first off let me point your attention to the corners. They have been embossed in white with a very old CTMH corner stamp.  My heart pearl was white, but I colored it with my copic pen.  The heart is from my cricut cartridge "Storybook" which I glittered and backed with red paper.
You know, I would give you the colors I used, but the reason I don't with these copics is that I use sooooo many, I can't even begin to remember what I used.  Maybe the better I will get at them the less I will use, but I am still learning and going over and over the image with a  thousand colors haha!  Thanks to my friend Jane for helping me out with hair colors, I like this color much better than what I have been doing before, just had to make a few more purchases. ka ching! 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Gotta run! I'm still working on a few fun things!!!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for taking the time to visit me!!

Hugs, Dena

  26. Oh my this is absoloutely gorgeous!! How can you say "When I get better with copics" when you are already stunning!! I would love to be able to colour like that, but not sure I will ever manage it. If I had the time, I would try and practise more.

    Stay safe with all the snow, I hope it doesn't last too much longer.
