Just Magnolia-Sketch by Jane/Magnolia-licious - Spring Project with Acetate/ Fussy and Fancy Fridays - Easter / Magnolia Down Under - Stitching

Today I had some fun putting together some creative cards for challenges. For this card I used my Nestibilities, Labels, and cut through the card to make a frame for the image on the inside. I used some acetate that I had laying around and put it between the layers on the front of the card, that way it doesn't show through the card. I then added some ribbon on the card as the design papers are from Martha Stewart's new Easter collection and only come in 4 x 6". That was a tiny bit small for my card. I covered the seam of the two papers on the front with co-ordinating Papertrey ribbon. I sewed down the papers to fit in with the Magnolia Down Under Challenge of Stitching, Real or Fake. I added on my little Tilda holding her lamb, colored in copics. At the top of the front of the card I added some decorative corner cut outs and put Martha Stewart flowers on top to match the sketch from Just Magnolia. Here's there sketch:
Magnolia-licious is looking for cards with acetate on them, so the window on my card was so it would fit that challenge. Finally fussy and Fancy Fridays is looking for Easter cards. So my card was made for 4 challenges.
On the inside of my card I used an Easter scene I purchased from Magnolia, colored to match Tilda. I layered some Martha Stewart Easter paper over the stamped scene, added tons of glitter and more Papertrey ribbon to match the front of the card. My sentiment is the fabulous sentiment from Stamping Bella that Emily made for me. It is now for sale and you can get one before Easter.
Have a great Monday.
Hugs xx
