MMSC37 Magnolia in springtime



Hello everyone!  I made this card for Midnight Madness Sketch 37. I can't believe I'm already 3 weeks into my Guest Designer term!!!  I did take a few liberalities with the top elements... made mine flowers instead of gems, but I had so much fun playing with this one.  This is my first Magnolia stamp.  I have had a few images given to me but this is the first stamp I owned and what fun to color!  I'm ready for winter to be over and warm weather to be here... and this makes me think of spring.



I water colored my image, cut her out and popped her up on dimensionals...used the Spellbinders Lattice Borderability at the top and wove little ZVA Creative Silk flowers into the lattice.  The bottom lattice is the Martha Stewart edge punch.  The pearls are also ZVA Creative, the matting for my image is a Cuttlebug Corner die cut.  Ribbon is from Michael's.   Sentiment is from  "My Sentiments Exactly". DP is Daisy D.
