Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar Challenge!

Oh boy! I was itching to get to working with my flowers again.  Those boy cards just don't allow it! haha!  I have to admit, I am lost without my flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts!!!!

Since today is Friday, that means it is time for another challenge at the Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar Challenge.  The theme is ANYTHING GOES - OPTIONAL SEWING (Faux or real).  That's  a pretty easy one for me since I love to sew on my cards.  Sometimes it just needs that extra little touch to make it look finished.

I'm so excited to share with you my new find..............The paper is K&Co. - Watercolor Bouquet!!!! OMG! I love every single sheet of paper, front and back.  I bought it from Michaels with the 50% off coupon I had the other day.  Talk about a bargain. There are quite a few lilac shades in this packet, and plenty of pinks!! Woo Hoo.  I kinda covered up the pretty papers, but you can see a hint of it haha!

 Cute little Tilda colored with copics and a hint of pencils for deeper shadows.  I used both mediums for the grass also with lots of different colors including brown and yellow.

Eek! Look at those new Sweetheart Blossoms! These are two tone with blue edging.  I used the lilac cherry blossoms and curly roses for this little cluster.  You can also see the self adhesive rhinestones and guipure lace all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I used the gorgeous sketch from the Magnolia-licious Highlight Challenge so I will enter my card there and since Magnolia Down under would like to see Ribbons and Lace, I would like to enter there also. 

The Design Team have all done another fantastic job with creating inspiration for you. Please go have a look at their individual blogs and come on and join us this week!

Thank you for you visit today!  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend planned!!!

Hugs, Dena
