This week's Blogger's Challenge theme is LOVE! Yes, I know I'm a day late for Blogger's Challenge, but you see, I'm not lovin' all of the new gadgets that go with this new computer! I think that I figure out how to do something and then I try to do it again and I get nothin'! Then when what I want to happen actually does, and I have no idea how I did it...ugh! I'm still trying though, and I'm sure the more I tinker with it, the more I'll understand, but for now it is extremely frustrating!
Are you ready for all of the details about my card? Well, here goes! Kerry Donovan Casey sent me this adorable Magnolia stamp last week along with one of her GORGEOUS cards (I won a little drawing that she had on her blog). The image reminded me of when you hold out your arms and say, "I love you this much!" So, I thought that it would be perfect for the "Love Challenge". I have to say that I have never been so intimidated to color before...lol! Everytime I see one of these Magnolia images colored, they are so beautiful. My coloring just isn't there yet, but hopefully some day it will be. I used my Prismacolor Pencils for this one and I paired it up with a Stampin' Up sentiment (from the retired set, Love Matters) and some of my favorite Stampin' Up colors (Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, and So Saffron). I also used my Stampin' Up punches and white grosgrain ribbon. The little pearls are from Martha Stewart, and the oval was cut with my Nesties and then embossed in my 'Bug. So, there you have it...my very first Magnolia creation. I hope I you like it Kerry! Be sure to check out what all of the other Ladies in the Blogger's Challenge group have come up with.
