Friday Sketchers #91 (A little late)/Scrap-Creations

This is really bad. I made this card for the Friday Sketchers Challenge #91 a month ago. I was all ready to post the card. I figured I could do it while on vacation. Then, low and behold, I could not get on the internet. So, the card has been sitting waiting to be posted. So, though I did not make the cut off for the challenge, I still like the card and decided to post it.

A little after the fact, I had a comment that I should enter this in the Scrap-Creations Going Grey Challenge, so this card is for that challenge as well.

Here is the sketch...

...and here is the card...
Stamp: Tilda With Lamb (Magnolia)
Paper: Bordering Blue, LilyKate (Basic Grey)
Ink: Staz-on, Distress Ink.
Accessories: Martha Stewart Punch, Prima Flowers, Stickles, ribbon, lace, corner punch.

This is one of my favorite Magnolias. I just love her with that sweet little lamb. I water colored with distress ink and added Stickles to her outfit. I blended colors of distress inks for the background.

I used the same color blending with distress inks for my Easter Wishes background.

I used Prima flowers with some Stickles to make the flowers sparkle.

I hope you will join me Thursday for the monthly Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long blog hop.
