A Dream Come True!

Good Saturday morning! Whoo Hoooo it's a three day weekend! This means there will be time to straighten the house, work outside and RELAX before the weekend ends! Love that!
Another dream come true is to to design with Magnolia stamps from Magnolia-licious and to be part of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group! So on to the card-I made it for the celebration (Birthday Bash) of the Yahoo group's 2nd birthday! There are eight weeks of challenges being put on by the group moderators and this is number three-a sketch challenge by Chris! (see Links below, Please!) I think this would make a great engagement card for a girl-maybe my niece one day! You can read all about it AND see Chris' sketch on the Birthday Bash Blog! My image is from Magnolia-licious
Diana has THE BEST selection of Magnolia images! I notice some at 40% off this morning! AND she is having weekend mysteries where she hides a FREE stamp among her inventory! All you have to do is find it and add it to your cart! When you check out you won't be charged for that stamp!
ETA: I guess this weekend's hunt is over. Two people already found the Spring Kits which were hidden by Diana. Sorry! Tune in next weekend!
I also used Magnolia paper that I got from Diana's store! She mentioned that the frog pattern is her favorite so I made this card for her! (I'll have to make another for my niece!) I worked a LOT of pinks (Rs and RVs to get a color that is even close to the orchid pink that is in the paper. That's one of the many reasons why I love my copics-I just keep adding colors to get what I want. Please send me a note if you have a need to know and I will try to figure it out for YOU!
The greens are
G000, G00, , G02 and a little G40. Her hair is Y21, YR24, E99, E25. When I add a darker color I go back and blend with my lightest-Y21. If you blend with a blender you can get too much bleeding in the small areas. Just a tip!
Okay, I have to get going on laundry and a little picking up (messy, messy craft room) so I can read on the deck in the pm! Fire outside tonight!
