Just Magnolia Challenge - Bev's Sketch

Friday already! Is it just me or are the weeks flying by??? Seems like you all loved Dena's tutorial for the tent card - they're great fun to make aren't they? They were gorgeous, thanks for all your entries!! Dena's agreed to join us full time too so you will be able to see even more of her gorgeous work! This week we have a sketch for you by my talented teamie Bev, thanks hun, loved working with it! I've made another Mother's Day card, this one is for my MIL from my children so I have created a little scene of them using Tilda and Edwin LOL. The papers are all from the Basic Grey Sugared collection and I've distressed them and inked with Vintage Photo distress ink.
I've stamped Tilda and Edwin together and coloured with distress inks. Both are from the Magnolia winter kit. I've added stickles to Edwin's wings and to Tilda's top, socks and basket/cone.
I've created a flower from the papers using EK success retro flower punches and added a couple of heart pins from the Hobby House. I have used my new MS daisy border punch on both sides of the horizontal strip. The ribbon and brads are from my stash.
I added a few small flowers dotted about the card to break up the darkness of the paper on the left hand side. I altered the sketch a tiny bit as my sentiment wouldn't fit in an oval so opted for a rectangle on the slant instead LOL. The sentiment is a combination of computer generated and a Magnolia stamp from the Winter kit.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Hope you can join us this week at Just Magnolia and can pop and have a drool over the rest of the teams gorgeous creations! x
