Magnolia Birthday

How about a Magnolia card today? I received several Magnolia stampoffs from a friend – thanks, Andrea! I colored up five of them over the weekend, and I have made them all into cards now. You may be seeing a lot of them!

Today’s card is supposed to be for Christmas, I think. I had originally colored it that way, but decided I wanted to use it now. So I colored over the holly leaves in her hair, and changed the colors of the presents! I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I added Stickles to her wing. I cut her, and the matting, with Long Oval Nestabilities. Hmmm, what to do with her now? I found the small piece of pink (the same color!) already embossed with the Dotted Swiss folder and laying on my table. I held it underneath, and thought it looked good. Now, where to put the sentiment? I thought it would look nice above the image and have seen on other blogs to bend the stamps to print in a curve. However, I knew I didn’t have a stamp that long. So, it popped into my head to print it on the computer. Wasn’t sure I’d be able to pull it off, but it worked!

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

What a cute card and I love the layout you used! Is that a rounded stamp for the wording? Beautiful job coloring the image!!!
