Sweet Love - Magnolia-licious "W"ednesday Post #62

Hello!  Happy Wednesday!

It's time for another "W"ednesday Post at the Magnolia-licious Challenge.  Wednesdays are when the DT gals take turns showcasing the other stamps (besides Magnolia stamps) that Magnolia-licious on-line store carries.  Today I'm partnering up with Suzi to participate in this week's "W"ednesday Post.

Here's the card I've created...

A close-up of the sweet image from Saturated Canary, designed by Krista Smith, that I'm featuring...

and she's called Canary Love.  Used my markers to colour--colours listed below.

The stamp for this image is available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  See the rest of the Saturated Canary Stamps collection HERE.

Check out also the other stamps that Magnolia-licious carries--stamps from Magnolia Stamps of course, Wild Rose StudiosCandibeans and Wee Stamps.
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and there's also a customer reward program where you earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.

For your chance to win a "Leave A Comment" Surprise Package Prize from Magnolia-licious, there is a weekly random draw.  All you have to do is leave a comment--the more you comment the greater your chances.

I'm pleased you shared this absolutely beautiful project with us at Aud Sentiments Norma! I went carefully thru your post to see if you did the coloring on this image - I was sure it must be pre-colored it is so perfect! But kudos to you on your masterful coloring skills! I am soo impressed - those shoes just pop off the page with dimension & her hair is so realistic. And then there is the framing you have done with great paper choices and delightful layering of papers, ribbon, flowers and pearls. Can you tell I like it?
