Just Magnolia Recipe!

Hey there everyone!  We have had the most aweful rain the past few days!!! How's the weather where you are?

It's Friday and that means time for another Just Magnolia Challenge.  This time we want to see a recipe.  Your card should include:
3 Flowers
2 Papers
1 Ribbon

For my card today I used an image that my friend Andie sent me.  I really like this little girl and think she is just loving that ice cream.  I wanted to create something real summery.
You can see I added a couple of layers of dimension.  I really like how it turned out!

Since I am taking a personal interest in keeping Martha Stewart in business, I used my new border punch.  Oh there are still more that I want too.  Simon Says carries a huge selection of Martha Stewart products.

Card Ingredients:

Stamps: Magnolia -  Tilda With Ice Cream, Spring Fence, Tilda's Birds
Inks:  Distressed Inks
Paper:  MME Quite Contrary and not sure of sripe but it's MME
Tools:  MS - Branch Punch, Layered Arches Border, Double Loop Corner, EK Success Frond Punch, Nesties
Embellies: Stardust Stickles, Hero Arts Blue Rhinestones, Charm, Ribbon, Wild Orchid Cherry blossoms, Wild Orchid Classic Rose

Well, it's almost the weekend!  I hope everyone has some super fun plans. Be sure to go and check out all the Just Magnolia Design Team's work.  They are sure to inspire you!!!!

Thank you all for stopping by!

Hugs, Dena
