Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar

Woo Hoo! It's Friday! You know what that means!! A new challenge at the Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar Challenge. This time my very talented friend Mindy has the theme "Pink, Purple, and Pearls". What a fantastic color scheme huh?

I went with another fantastic sketch by the Crafting Life's Pieces Monthly Challenge here:

I have such hard time find wonderful lavender papers so what do you do? Go digi! I went on a search and found this lavender pack at Etsy and it was MGA Creations. I really like what they had to offer and it was true to color when I printed it out. Nothing drives me nuts more than buying a digi paper pack and the colors are not the same as they show on the computer!!!

All of my flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts!!!! I used the baby pink Cherry Blossoms, Lt. Violet Wild Roses, 10mm White open roses, 6mm rosebuds, and 3mm self adhesive pearls.

I know you are going to want to go see what all the amazing DT have done with this color combination. Their work is just gorgeous!

Have a wonderful weekend and stay cool wherever you are!

Thank you so very much for your kind words!

Hugs, Dena

Beautiful! Love the colours and the fab sketch. The flowers are stunning. Colouring is fab as always.

I'm moving in less than a week!!! So exciting!!! I hear on the news the heat in Houston is brutal. My sis told me some guy died while he was moving the lawn!

Hello there gorgeous! :) to say about all of this cuteness? First of all: you have worked the colour scheme like a dream! ;) It is so beautiful and the digi papers are lush! I would never have thought about that. Digi papers, I must be in the 20th century still..He,he,he!

Stunning looking image and after you worked your magic it looks so real :) So alive :) Cool to make a folder to put around the card as well. You´re so full of great ideas!

Hugs and wishes for a great weekend!
