Magical Magnolias + Chevrons + Colour Q

It is serendipity how challenges work together sometimes. This card was started in my mind with the CASual Fridays Challenge to use both Flowers & Chevrons.

 


I had a Cuttlebug embossing folder and Memory Box die out on my desk, but hadn't found the time to put together a card yet. Yesterday Cath posted the new Tuesday Trigger: Magical Magnolias at Moxie Fab World and Arielle posted this week's Colour Q Challenge which inspired me to get this card done.






Now, I realize my flower die is not the same as the Magnolia blossoms on the tree, but they both have a very soft, feminine feel, so I went with it :)



I used the debossed side of the main panel, colored my flowers and pearls with the same copic marker and finished it off with one of my oldest wood mount stamps and favorite sentiments. In real life the pearls & flowers are the same color - the pearls are looking a little peachy to me here & I'm not sure why?

Since Simon Says . . . April Showers and Spring Flowers this week, I am also linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog.

ETA: I've had a couple of questions about the embossing folder - it is a Cuttlebug folder from Provo Craft called "Charles" that also comes with a single chevron border embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie

  3. JACQUIE!! LOVE how this turned out! The debossed side of your paper is more subtle to go with the look of your CAS card. And your coloring on the flowers is so sweet. Really well done! Thanks for playing with the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!
