Just Magnolia - Jay Jay's Sketch.......

Good morning folks!

Hope you are all enjoying the week so far? I'm dashing off to work shortly which is why this is a very short post! I just wanted to share the card I made for this week's Just Magnolia Challenge where Jay Jay has provided us with a gorgeous sketch to follow.

You know when you're saving a paper for something and you're not sure why? Well I've had this one in my stash for an age but when I saw the sketch I knew it was the right one to use as the flowers look so effective cut out and layered. I used my scrummy MS punch for the middle border again and coloured with ProMarkers for a change. The ticket sentiment is by Tim Holtz.

Sorry to be brief but I'm sitting here with wet hair and time is marching on.

Have a great day and toodles for now!

Hugs Tara xxx

This is so beautiful Mum, the colour combo is lovely and I really love how you've cut the flowers out of the paper! The pearls look great too, and I really like how you've used the Tim Holtz ticket as part of the sentiment! :)
