Just Magnolia GD card


Hi dear all! I'm back again to show you my 3rd  paper project I made for Just Magnolia as Guest Designer. Claudia prepared for us a themed challenge- use a quirk or funny sentiment. Normally this wouldn't be a problem but somehow I couldn't find a funny Magnolia in my stash...lol. So I went for this Strawberry Yummy Tilda I have been dying to color for some time and for a more unusual sentiment, something I don't normally use.
So, here's my card:


I really enjoy making shaker cards- love the dimension on them and the fact that I can add many kinds of little stuff in the inside to make it special.
I paper-pieced Tilda's dress and added some sort of flowersoft in the inside.

Recipe:
Stamp: Magnolia- Strawberry Yummy Tilda- (Sweet Rainbow collection)
Medium: copics and Promarkers
DP:K&Company- Sweet Nectar, Cosmo Cricket digital, MME for the dress
Embellies: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, metal corners, lace and garland; charm from Bunny Zoe;
Misc: distress inks, Flowersoft, scalopped ovals nesties
Sentiment: internet- computer generated

Hope you like my little card; it was a quick one as my house is upside down these days- we are kind of redecorating (meaning we move the furniture from one room to another...lol), so no time for crafting and my stuff seems to be nowhere and everywhere...lol.
Thanks for coming by today, please take a "me time" and enter our challenge at Just Magnolia and Hanglar& Stanglar- I'm really anxious to see what you guys come up with- I've been racking my brain for this one but I guess I haven't been in a very creative mood lately.
Thanks for coming by today!
Wish you all a happy weekend!
Hugs,

gorgeous! Love that lace - and I have always loved shaker cards! The next time I see a bird I will ask him how that cherry tastes. I do have a bowl full in my refrigerator!

It's stunning. Love your shakercards. And the way you make her dress is so sweet.
