Because... it was about time

Only the second time I've used a stamp from the Magnolia Winter kit.. disgusting isn't it? I sure do like the images in the last kit though, so I'm sure eventually they'll get some inking... but for now, we'll just have to settle on this one.

I received a gorgeous birthday card from Mandy today... a complete surprise and so gorgeous IRL. Check the card on her blog out here, thanks so much Chickie! How lucky am I? Love, love it!! And, it was just so gorgeous that I had to take some of the gorgeous inspiration and put it to good use....

okay, so obviously the colours weren't my inspiration for this one, but the gorgeous distressing, the glitter and the stunning butterfly all made their way onto my card.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Ooh La La - 3 of a Kind (I have 3 WOC roses & used the MS Border Punch 3 times)
Magnolia-Licious Challenge - Gorgeous Photo Inspiration (I went with the colours and vintage look)
Papertake Weekly - Sketch #52

Hope you're all enjoying the day - mine's almost over so that means I'm almost 30!! Will see you all tomorrow cause there's a hop I wanna hop to!! ♥

You have a wonderful blog and your artwork is amazing! I have a question for you. You said that you color everything with Pebbles Chalks. Do you have to spray them or seal them in anyway so they don't smear? I really love the soft look, but I always thought chalks were difficult to control. How do you do it?

Snoopy :D

Lori said...
