I'm Stuck On You!......


Good morning everyone!

What a lovely Spring day it is today..... cold and frosty but beautifully bright and the birds are having a good old singsong about it!!

Here's a card I made using the lovely romantic window Magnolia recently released.... I love it! And it works perfectly with these pretty Webster's pages papers! Now I did follow Mina's gorgeous sketch for Just Magnolia, but I know it might be difficult to see that.... I swappped the image circle for a square and my two cross over border strips may not be that recognisable...... I did try, lol! I just seem to go off at a tangent sometimes when following a sketch, that's all!! Well I hope you can work out what I did, hee hee!


Now do you like these little roses? Well I made them myself using Core'dinations cardstock and they were very simple really..... you just tear a spiral shape, roll the whole thing up and then losen and tweak to the desired shape..... oh and pop a pearl in the middle to finish.... and voila! I'm really pleased with how they turned out and will definitley be making more soon!


I used a DooHickey die for the fence and QuicKutz leaves...... everything else is from my stash.
