The Seeds of Life...

Happy Monday Everyone! Wow! Did that weekend go fast or what? Keeping in mind that my son is 7 years old, he asked me the other day why the weekend couldn't be 5 days and the work week be 2 days? LOL!!! I said "Yeah, someone really got that one wrong, didn't they?" Well, anyway, we had a pretty full weekend. We ended it yesterday with some great friends over to swim for the day. What fun we had! It didn't rain and I ate too much! Right now, any day that it doesn't rain is a perfect day :-)

The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge

Welcome to challenge #4! Our theme this week is 'shimmer and pearls'. It's a super easy and fun challenge to play along with, so I will be looking for your card!!! Don't forget to check out TOMIC site for all of the challenge details. You can get a peek at the other DT projects there for even more inspiration. They're sure to have some wonderful things for you to see!!!

The Seeds of Life

This little cutie is #324 Seeding Tilda and she's from Magnolia's new 'Sweet Rainbow' collection. She's currently available at Magnolia-licious in both original and mini size. I paired her with #405 Tulip Walkway from the 'Butterfly Dreams' collection.

The gorgeous dp's are from the BG 'Out of Print' paper pad which is available at Love To Stamp. I LOOOOOOVE this paper pad!!! The colors and patterns are very lively and there is so much going on so they create a tremendous amount of interest as a back drop for a colored/painted image. You'll be seeing them A LOT from me!

I used pearls from my stash to accentuate the frame around the image, as well as for a little added interest in the corner and on the satin ribbon (also from my stash). The lace and flowers are from WOC. I used my Bow Easy to create the perfect little satin bow. And the shimmer??? I heavily coated the entire card with Pearl Glimmer Mist, but it doesn't show on the photo :-( It really looks pretty IRL though!

I colored the images with Copic markers. Here are the details:

E000, 00, 01, 11, 13, 41, 42, 43, 44, R00, 20, 30, Y21, 23, G12, 24, YG17, 61, 91, B0000, 00, N0, W1

That's it for me today! I hope you enjoyed my project. Thank you so much for stopping by!!!
