A Magnolia



Two posts in one day! This week's Pattie's Creations Challenge is Mother's Day and I have a friend at work who asked me to do 4 Mother's Day cards as she needed to send a few late cards. This lovely Pattie's Creations Magnolia Branch image was perfect. I printed out the image a bit larger and added an extra bloom. I sponged around a roll of ribbon for the shading and twisted a Spellbinders die to add to my frame.

Hugz!

  7. This is beautiful and your friend will very happy that she asked you to make her cards. Oh good idea to use a ribbon spool while shading. Thanks for that. Your shadowing is perfect and gives the whole card a beautiful vintage feel. Like that SB die and the button also. Someone is going to be thrilled to receive this.
