My first Magnolia card


Well, it's been a long time coming but I've had so much fun making this card.

After a full day of cleaning house getting it ready for another inspection (we're still up for sale!) I couldn't wait to get in to my craft room tonight.

I got to use my recent Mother's Day present of the Jam Tilda stamp and skin tone Copics.

I used  E000, E00, E11 and R20 Copics to colour Tilda's skin and the rest was coloured using my Lyra Water Colour Crayons.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

OSCC #81 - Birthstones - Pearls are birthstones right??
Stamp Something - 2 of something - 2 ovals behind Tilda

My birthday blog candy is still running click here to enter.

Thanks for stopping by today.
