Magnolia May Sketch


I can't believe it. I started and finished a card tonight. Today I should have worked on the birthday cards for my lovely GD and my aunt. But no, I decide to make the May sketch for Magnolia-licious instead.
I used Tilda with tulips, which is another one of my new favorites and colored her with Distress inks. Only the third stamp I have colored using Distress inks. I need a lot of practice and I can't wait for Suzanne Dean to show us her tutorial. The DP is from K&Company and I have had it for a long time. I sponged the papers with Tea Dye Distress ink. The ribbon was a little extra that came with my Ellen Hutson order. That was a nice surprise. I didn't think that I would use it so soon. The button came from my stash. Actually, it used to be a button from an old sweater of mine. The sentiment is from PTI's Mega Mixed Messages, stamped with PTI Dark Chocolate.
Again, I wish the colors would look better on the photo.
Thanks to everybody for leaving such nice comments, it is very much appreciated.
