Magnolia-licious meets Friday Sketchers

There is a great challenge over on Magnolia-licious Hightlites. They are asking for an Easel card, and you have the whole month of October to do it (thankfully, as I kept forgetting about it *blush*). 

Hubby came home from work today and asked if I had a card that he could give to the lady leaving the office where he works. As I was in the middle of making this card I just added the sentiment and now he has his card :)

I followed the sketch on Friday Sketchers for the front of my card.

I just love this MS zig zag edger!! The wonderful flowers and tulle are from Tabby Crafts, I can see I'm gonna have to slow down on using these or I'll be breaking my stash ban AGAIN!! lol.

Since this card won't fit in a standard envelope I made a 6x6 box for it and used the same dp to decorate. 

Papers: Heidi Grace Frost Boulevard
Image: Magnolia Tilda
Distress Inks, Copic Markers, MS Zig Zag Punch
Flowers & tulle: Tabby Crafts
Ribbon, gem brads, Prima swirl, Glittered skittles.

Love it Sandie, your Magnolia is cute and the blue colour scheme is so pretty.
