Hi!! So much to do, but I wanted to have a Saturday card for you! This is the card I sent to the 4 Magnolia-lcious members who were being rained on in April! My "rain" was a little late and I hope they forgive me!
My coloring was inspired by this fantastic cosmo Cricket paper. I love the lace and gray tones! The bg is another sheet from the same collection. It's Beau-ti-ful!
For just a pop of color I made her rose pink and added sparkle to it. The gray taffeta ribbon is from SU and the yellow cardstock that matched best was So Saffron and Sahara sand.
This is my first girl with "black" hair. I hope she doesn't look like an old lady instead!!
Off to get my Saturday work done so I can go to some greenhouses this afternoon!
Happy Birthday to my sister, Marilu!!
Hope you have a great day! Thanks for coming to my blog!!

Girl, you got the hair down perfect! I really love the look of this card. Even though it is more simple and doesn't have all the extra bling, you made a card that is simply beautiful.
I had to print it out so I can study your techniques. Thanks for all of the time you put into making each card, posting them online for us to view, also for sharing your thoughts.
Wishing you Gods blessings,
