Magnolia Challenge Inspiration

I have been pining away for a Magnolia Stamp for months! Finally, a few weeks ago, I gave in and ordered one. Yes, it is expensive....so no, I will not be buying many more, but I am glad I have one! Isn't she the cutest ???

My layout and colors are inspired by this week's Color Challenge at SCS, as well as the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge at Poetic Artistry. While I met neither challenge exactly, I loved the inspiration of colors and layout!

And I was brave enough to dive into my stash of SU! Spring Fling paper. Does that happen to you?? I buy paper that I love, and then I hate to cut it up!!! Some layers...a few primas....my old standby colored pencils...some stickles here and there...and here you go!

Thanks for looking!

Do something creative every day!

stamps: Magnolia
paper: SU!
embellishments: stickles, primas
technique: colored pencils with odorless mineral spirits

Oh more than you know this happens to me! LOL I am a horder, I don't know why, I keep it so long that it is out dated and isn't even as nice as I remember.... How sad eh? Love that Magnolia, I am like you and don't want to spend that much on a stamp!
