Well, it's raining and a bit yucky out today, so I decided to think Spring and make a card for the Magnolia-licious Extravaganza contest! I've had this image colored since last Spring, it was my first try at coloring with distress inks and it was FUN!! My card is pretty simple, I used Spellbinders scalloped ovals and embossed the bottom one with Swiss Dots. I added some stickles around the scallops on the top layer, stamped some little swirls in yellow and chalked the edges pink. The flower panel is embossed with a folder from Sizzix. I got the lovely lace at a local vintage shop, added some tiny pearls to it. I also stickled up some of the flowers to add extra sparkle! The narrow ribbon was white to begin with, I couldn't find the right shade of pink in all my hundreds of ribbons, so I spritzed it with glimmer mist!! I added a little vintage button to the bow. I know it's not as fancy or special as most of the cards entered, but I do like it and think it will go to my Mom for Easter. She's always taking care of her "chicks", meaning us kids! and it just reminds me of her for some reason!
