Margaret is getting her girls off to their dad's for the summer, so I am here tonight with a post. This card is FOR Margaret. I had a fantastic time visiting with her and the girls. So I sat down tonight, and while listening to my San Francisco Giants play the Chicago Cubs, I made this card.
I CASED this card from Irene's Scrapbook: Fijine Dag!. It's a step card with a twist. The left side is whole, while the right side has 3 steps. I used a very happy Tilda (Margaret LOVES Magnolias) and colored her in purples using Copics and Spicas, then fussy cut her. Julia will tell you that purple is MY favorite color. I used a few of my newest dies, picked up in Colorado last week!!! The tree and flowers are all Memory Box. The grass is an MFT die. The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch, and remind me of Claudia, flitting here and there. The sentiment (SU!) is stamped with Imperial Purple Versafine and a Nestie die was used to cut it out. I added Swarovski crystals to all the flower centers, sentiment and butterflies. The cloud paper is digital and is from Shery K. Designs.
