Magnolia


Hi bloghoppers, i have made this easel card for two challenges: Just Magnolia and the Magnolia birthday bash, i must add that i totally enjoyed making this, i didnt have too much difficulty doing the lace around the image, but i think its the colors and the GLITTAH! we all know i LOVE  a bit of bling.  OOOHH, i just noticed that crazy 4 challenges want you to use pleats on your card, well thats what i did witht he lace so i will enter it there too.

Did ya notice i used my cricut?  Now dont go getting any ideas that i am finally bonding with that hatefull machine, i got through four sheets of cardstock to just get these few things cut, grrrrr, it is so frustrating not knowing what the end cut will be.  So my Mag image was cut using my coluzzle, then i cut the frames for the image on the cricut, behind my Image is where i pleated the lace to go all the way around.  I added pearls and lots of glittah to this card, the sentiment was also cut with the cricut.  My image is colored with copics, and the dp is from crafty individuals, i think!
