Magnolia-licious Sketch for April!

Hi! I love a day off work! It allowed me time for a nice long, early morning walk and then time to complete my April sketch card! Our sketch is my the amazingly talented and fabulous Claudia of Pretty Pressings! She kept it nice and simple so the possibilities are endless and I love that! Thank you, Claudia!
My card base is Purely Pomegranate and I used dp from Basic Grey (Green at Heart) and cosmo Cricket (Farm Fresh). They mixed beautifully, IMO. I used images from Magnolia-licious, of course- the Open Gate and Tilda with eggs in her Apron. The sentiment is from Inky Antics. For details on making and entering a card this month, please visit our Magnolia Highlites Blog!
Once again, I forgot to write colors down and in a rush to clean up my desk I put the markers away. Sorry, I'll try to do better!
The bunny is because my friend LISA of KIND CREATIONS is so good at staging her cards that I wanted to try it! I've got a lot to learn! LOL!
My new car came to me yesterday! The dealer brought it down (an hour away) because we had driven there twice this week! I love it! It is another Subaru Outback (DH would add "Motortrend's Sport Utility vehicle of the year!") I traded in my blue one for a beauty-ful green one!
My winner of the Honey Bee Tilda card that I colored for the Copic creations Challenge, Mar 15 is # 18 chosen by
Barb, an RN is Michigan, this is you! Please contact me at with your address when you get a chance!
Have a great day, everyone, and thanks for visiting!
