First summer magnolia kit card!

This is the first card I ahve made with my new stamps from my summer magnolia kit. It's the first time I've ordered this kit direct from Magnlolia and I can't believe what amazing value it is! It's a bit leathal really as I can see myself ordering every one of these kits from now on! Lol! I also used the sketch over at friday sketchers this week!

I masked this gorgeous tilda so I could sit her on the logs and its' the first time I've used this technique. I love the final effect, so clever! I coloured the image with my koh-i-noors, getitng better at this, although the sky could be a bit better! The beautiful papers are from the MME Bloom & Grow pad again. I just LOVE these papers. CS is from coredinations and I embossed the green CS with a cuttlebug folder. The sentiment is also from the manolia summer kit and the legless brads are from craft work cards and I have added a little glossy accents to them.

Well I hope you like! My OH is out with the boys tonight so time for me to hit the craft room I think! Lol!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Vicky -x-

Oh, I am so jealous of your new Magnolia kit! Why didn't I just order it?! I regret it every time!

Gorgeous card you've made there by the way, just loving your MME papers too.

The comment you left the other day about how much all your crafting stash adds up to made me laugh so much! Ali is in blissful ignorance too! I fear it may be for their own good though eh?! ~x~
