Magnolia-licious August Sketch Challenge

Wow this has been a busy summer. I keep thinking I am going to have time to stamp, and then get too busy. I did want to post this card for the August Challenge for Magnolia-licious.

The challenge for Magnolia-licious for August is to use this sketch...

and here is my submission for this challenge...

I wanted to think outside the box with this card, so I tried to picture what the circles might be, and I came up with balloons. I used my cloud stencil to create a sky background for Tilda and her balloons.

Hopefully I will find some time for stamping in September. Now that school is back in session, I am hopeful that things will slow down a bit.

Have a great week.

A Spoonful of Sugar #62

Happy Monday!

A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge 62 is to use this sketch..

and here is my card...

Stamps: Tilda with Dalecarlia Coat (Magnolia), Be Happy (Stampin' Up!)

Ink: Memento, Copics, White Gel Pen, Cameo Coral Craft pad

Paper: Out and About (My Mind's Eye), Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip

Embellishments: Prima’s, Dew Drops, Hologram Highlights Embossing Powder. Scallop Circle Punch

Note: The Chocolate Chip paper was a little dark for my idea of using Cameo Corral Craft ink with Hologram Highlights embossing powder for the "Smile" circle. So, I used the white gel pen to highlight the word "smile." which helped make it pop.

I cut one of the circles out of the designer paper for the inside of the card as well as the large circle on the front of the card.

These are the colors I used to color Tilda.

Have a great week!
