Magnolia vs. Stampavie - Week 14

YAY...I am so excited that I got to play along this week with the Magnolia vs. Stampavie challenge....I love their challenges (school work just had to wait today...ha ha).....I got my creation done just in the nic of time! Woo-Hoo! This week was a color challenge, you needed to use chocolate chip, old olive, not quite navy, and bashful blue. Seeing how these are colors I normally don't use it made my brain think hard.....but I did have fun and found some new favorite colors to play with! I love it when that happens! Since I love to follow sketches when I create, I headed on over to the fabulous Katharina's blog and found THIS sketch to use as my starting point. Katharina makes the best sketches!!!

For this card I used Valentine Tilda who was colored with my Copics (real surprise huh?!). I got out my handy dandy Janome Mini Sewing machine for this card.....I just love that thing.....thanks mom and dad for the fun toy (they got me it for christmas)! Used my nesties (nesties and Tilda were purchased from Wish On A Scrap)! DP is Creative Memories, and cardstock is SU and textured CS from my stash. Flowers, ribbons and charm also from my stash. Used my Martha punch for my leaves. The small flower on the bottom was painted with December Sky Shimmerz Blingz for some extra sparkle.
Here's a close up of Miss. Tilda so you can see the coloring!
Then here is the inside....I decided to carry the sketch through to the inside of the card...can you tell I went crazy with my sewing machine today?!
Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! We are getting some snow here today so it's a good day to stay inside and craft....tomorrow is homework day....ICK!
Thanks for stopping by!
