Just Magnolia - Week 13

I'm pleased to say that I didn't get washed away in the monsoon at Saturday's christening. Although, my frock was pretty much ruined anyway as I put it on 3 weeks after buying it to realise that is now way too big for me! Grr. Love that dress too :o( . However, as Ali said, at least it wasn't too small for me, at least I went the right way along the scale! Despite the fashion dramas, the christening was lovely and Emily Grace didn't even cry! Quite the opposite actually, she high-fived the priest when he reached out to try and touch her forehead! Bless!

After the excitement of the christening, I came home and made up my 'challenge sheet' for the week and had a delve in my newly put together "Favourite Swap Images which I HAVE to Use" bag. The first one to come out was this gorgeous Tilda, which I decided would be perfect for the sketch over on the Just Magnolia challenge blog.

I have to admit, I am extremely partial ot the lovely papers and colours on this one! It's also the first time that I tried colouring behind the image too and, despite the masses of blender pen I went through, I think it went pretty well. Still addicted to those scalloped blanks though I'm afraid.....!

Goodie List........
Stamps: Magnolia - received in swap.
Paper & Card: Stampin' Up.
Ink & Colour: Memento, Copic markers, Spica glitter pen & white gel pens.
Tools & Embellishments: Nestabilities, Prima flowers, Dew Drops, C.Cards Mini Messages.

Anyway, best go and get in the shower now.... wish it was still the weekend and I didn't have to go to stinky work!

Gorgeous card, great layout. The papers are another favourite of mine. Can understand why the image is one of your favs, she is so sweet.
Hope work isn't too bad, I'm working from home today, so not such a mad rush this morning!
