Roses for a Friend

     A second post today for no particular reason except that I woke somewhat early, felt a bit creative, and got this card made after an hour of detailed coloring.  I haven't used any of my Magnolia stamps in a very long time so I thought it was time to dig them out.  This sweet Tilda with the bouquet of roses just seemed perfect for a friendship card.

     I colored her with my ProMarkers and added a touch of glitter to the sparkle points in her hair and to the center of each rose in the bouquet.  Unfortunately, as with most of my photos, the sparkle just doesn't show.  But it's definitely there IRL.  The card front is embossed with one of my folders.

     Both the image and the purple mat were cut with Unbranded dies.  I used gel ink to highlight the stitching on each die cut.  The sentiment was printed and die cut, adhered to the bottom of the card front and then trimmed along the bottom.  I used bits of two different ribbons layered on top of each other and then used two of the bows I make by the dozens and toss into my stash for future use.  This time, I used white bows (one satin & one sheer) then 'dyed' each bow with ProMarkers to get the color I wanted.
