Fabulous Friday

Good Morning!  I am so glad that I don't go into work until this afternoon.  I've been really stressing and struggling with this move that my creative spirit has flown away.  I didn't work on anything last night - I dozed most of the evening until bedtime.

I'm still not sure that my creative juices are flowing but I did want to try the sketch from The Sweet Stop and I hardly ever get to play along with Just Magnolia challenge, so I forced myself to work on a card for these challenges.  I'm not entirely happy with it, but I think it's OK.

The challenge at Just Magnolia is called It Takes Two - so two Magnolia images needed to be featured on the card.  I was thrilled when I dug through my card kits stash and found a kit that had two images in it.  I didn't follow the sketch at the The Sweet Stop to every letter of each of the elements.  My focal image ended up being too big for all the different parts.

Card stock:  Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
Paper:  The first dp is unknown because it came in a kit, the other is Basic Grey
Copics:  B95, B97, E00, E02, E53, RV000, RV02, RV10, Y15, Y17, YG03,
  YR16, YR23, YR61, Colorless Blender
Ink:  Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Rich Cocoa
Stamps:  Just Saying by Inkadinkadoo
Tools:  circle punches, sponges
Embellishments:  Prima flowers, Pearls (Recollections)

Fortunately this card also fits the challenge over at my monthly card traders group.  I do hope you like my card and thank you so much for visiting.

I love the way you got the placement so he is just barely touching her cheek. I am still learning how to get stamps to line up just right. You did an outstanding job.
