Just Magnolia week 11 - Sketch

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start and if you don't like yellow, avert your eyes now :D ! A card today for Just Magnolia which I was happy to do as I've missed the last two. There's a great sketch this week designed by Bev which I really enjoyed, thanks Bev. I've used the sweet 'Picking Lilacs' Tilda, I love her plaits! She's coloured with markers and glittered a bit here and there then cut out. The background paper is by Imaginisce and has little dots of glitter all over it in the flower centres but I didn't manage to capture that in the photo. My circle element of the sketch is cut from two nesties one inside the other to make the frame which I stamped with a swirl stamp and dusty concorde distress ink then embossed with CB swiss dots folder. The border is cut with a Fiskers Apron Lace punch. Another nestie, the labels die again was used to cut the sentiment tag which I stamped with a Papermania sentiment and went over with a purple glitter gel pen. I added some Prima flowers with pearl centres, EK Success cut leaves and a few more pearls to finish. TFL. Chris x

Yum! I love the yellow and purple together. There is a BasicGrey paper like that from "Oh, Baby Girl!" that I used on my end-of-year teacher gift Post-It note pad holders. Lovely card, sweet Chris :)
