My Best Magnolia Card Yet (in my opinion)

Hey there lovely peeps. Found time to make yet another Magnolia card. Absolutely love how this one turned out. All of the beautiful blue papers that I used come from the lovely Diana over at "Moshie's Moments"and the beautiful Mulberry Roses come from Jacque over "Jacque's Joie de Vivre" I colored the Magnolia image with Pencil crayons and outlined it with copics. I don't have enough colors to blend with so I have to use whatever works best for me. I would like to enter the card into the current challenges:

I'm Baaack....

Wow! Life sure has gotten away from me and so has my blog. I'm really disappointing at the lack of time I spend to keep my blog updated but with all the garden work and canning I have to say it has been tough. I've noticed that I lost 2 followers due to my lack to commitment to my blog and I'm sorry for not posting more often. I'll try to do better. :)
I got this weird idea to try something new and off I went to give it a go. Beading! Trying something different to make this card pop was all I had in mind. It took me forever to get this strand of beads beaded but I ended up managing after about 1.5 hours of work. Boy was I glad to be done. I have to say that the card didn't turn out quite like I expected it to but I guess it'll have to do. Imagine making a card that you want perfect and you work on it about twice as long as any of your other cards and it actually turns out not at all as you anticipated, boy that stinks! By the way if you've never tried making your own lace you really ought to. All you need is paper and any craft border punch. Its a little tricky in finding out how wide your strip should be but once you've done it you'll never want to use real lace again. Anyway here's my card.
