Sending Happy Thoughts - Magnolia-licious "W"ednesday #8


OMG, it's been a busy month for me.  I don't usually have so many postings per month, but I've got another card to show you.  This one is my DT card for today's "W"ednesday Posting #8 at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog

Each Wednesday, a few of the DT gals will showcase images from the Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studio, Penny Black or Candybean stamp collections that are available at the Magnolia-licious on-line store.  Today, it's Suzanne's, Patti Jo's and my turn to participate.

I found this Wee Stamps image partially done.  I was colouring her months ago, but didn't finished--she was about three-quarter coloured up.  I decided to use this as I was rushing to create a new card.  I just had to finish colouring the flowers, the background and the grass. 

I added some glitter to her wings--you can't see the glitter in the first picture, but I think you can see it in this close-up below.   

Items I've used that are available from Magnolia-licious store:
Mountain Lily from the Wee Stamps Collection
- Magnolia Doohickey Mini Scallop (die)
- Impression Obsessions Spiral Flowers (for the little white flowers, 1 of 5 dies )
- Impression Obsessions Leafy Branch (die)

Don't forget to head over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and see what Suzanne and Patti Jo had created for you. 
A reminder that there is a weekly draw for a Surprise Package Prize just for commenting.  All the comments made on the Tuesday Challenge and "W"ednesday postings on all the DT gals' blogs and the Challenge Blog itself will be entered into the draw.

Hi Norma! I'm a new follower and I really admire your work

Probably, it's a stupid question, but I would like to know you make the background for this card. I think is awesome!....if you can make a tutorial for all your followers, it would be a good idea!...

Thank you!

Regards from Spain
