Celebrate

Hi! As promised, here is my next Magnolia-licious card! I adore the stamps in the You are So Special collection! They are Awesoooome! I've used two for my card~ #294 TILDA WITH BALLOON AND #594 BALLOON BACKGROUND. I'm sorry the balloon background does not seem to be available right now in the store. Just check with Diana~she seems to get "mail" from Sweden almost everyday! In fact she ALREADY has 8 of the new Butterfly Collection IN STOCK for shipment!

So, I used copics to color my card in the following colors:
Skin E000, E11, R30 and E00
Dress: BG10. BG11 and BG72 (I used the BG11 to get a little more green to the color so it matched the paper more closely.
Shoes E31, 34 and 25
Balloon R81, 83 85, and 89
Balloons (green) YG21 adn YG23
Hair E50, Y21 adn E25
I'm not sure about the balance of my card-I wanted a bow in the ribbon, but ran out of pink satin ribbon! The gorgeous paper is My Mind's Eye from last year's Quite Contrary collection. I have lots, but cannot wait to get my hands on the new papers! I'm a paper fiend!!

I used the wonderful FRIDAY SKETCHERS sketch for this card AND I'm so happy to be in time to enter for the week!
Please remember it's not too late to enter for the SUNDAY SENSATIONS PRIZE on Jacque's blog! It's a 25.00 gift certificate!!
Well, I guess I've said enough for this time!
I appreciate that you came by today!
Cheryl
