magnolia mother's day

I needed a card for Mother's Day and as luck would have it, the theme this week at Magnolia Vs Stampavie is Mother's Day! This is very handy as I was planning to use a Magnolia stamp.

In the previous week at Magnolia Vs Stampavie, there had been a sketch challenge. Unfortunately, I hadn't had a chance to play, but as I liked the sketch so much, I decided to use it for my card this week.

So, here is the sketch.

This card also celebrates my first year in card making, as I made my very first card for Mother's Day last year. It was awful, although I thought it was great at the time! LOL!

Unfortunately the yellows in the cardstock haven't come through in the photos very well ~ it looks a lot better irl!!
All papers used are from the My Mind's Eye ~ Fresh collection. I cut the circles on my Cricut machine and all edges have been inked. The sentiment is computer generated.

The image is Magnolia ~ Tilda with bunch of flowers and I coloured her with my Copics.

The flowers are a mixture of Prima and Bazzill.

Thank you for looking.
