Sweet Magnolia

These Magnolia stamps are so cute! My friend Trina McKercher sent me several in a card and I am just falling in love with them. Here is my first "Tilda" card. (you can click the pic to enlarge)

I'm still learning about proportions and what makes sense with layouts etc. I ordered some paper from Mothers and Daughters Creations and they sent me some free 6x6 samples of their new paper. I just had to use this one with my sweet Tilda. I ran the choc. chip oval through cuttlebug with the divine swirls, so I thought this swirly butterfly from Papertrey Ink would go well with it. Then, for a saying, I cut out just the banner from a stamp from "So Many Scallops" set (SU! SAB set). What do you think? I have a few more -- stay tuned!! :o)

Gorgeous card.

In answer to your question about SAB it went well for me. 3 free sets coming. 1 for my very first recruit. Funny tho. my best workshop this year was today 2 days after SAB finished.

Ok just realised it wasn't your question about SAB I answered it was Marcia's. Must be time for bed I think.
