The Just Magnolia challenge this week is to use one or more charms. I added a butterfly charm to the flower embellishment in the top right corner of the card.
This week's Stampin for the Weekend challenge is a sketch. Two sketches were provided to choose from. I chose Donna's sketch, which is showne below. I tend to choose my images before I determine whether they will work right with a particular sketch. In this case. I had to use an oval instead of a circle because Tilda wouldn't fit in my largest circle Nestie. I also had to cut her out and pop-dot her on top to keep from cutting off part of the image. The flowers I used are premade paper sunflowers that I have had in my stash forever. I can't even remember why I bought them, but I'm glad I finally got the chance to use them. I modified the top part of the sketch so that I could add some ribbon and a charm to the card. Instead of the two buttons I used a large flower with a button center. I added tiny green buttons to my corner embellishment to work with the green in the top part of the card. The DP I used for this card is actually from one single sheet. It has also been in my stash forever and it was orginally designed for scrapbook layouts.
