First Magnolia v Stampavie Challenge

Over the last few weeks, I have been checking out the Magnolia vs Stampavie challenge blog. All of the cards there are always so beautiful, so I have been a bit hesitant to jump into the fray, but this week I decided to take a chance since it was a sketch challenge.

magnolia-sketch I used my Summer Whirl Tilda (I think that is her name) and printed papers from Making Memories. I cut the butterflies from a sheet and used a striped sheet. I didn’t have any ribbon that really worked so I braided yellow, green and blue embroidery floss. I’m not thrilled with how I colored the Tilda. I wish I had gotten my colors softer and more subtle. I do, however, love the fact that I doodled a border around my image. I am always terrified to do that, but I think it worked out pretty well in this case. Let me know what you think.



  1. Your cards is lovely! Love the image and the butterflies.
