I was in a grey mood...

and I sure wish I hadn't been. It took me a while to figure out how I should color the Tilda image I used for this card. It didn't turn out too bad but I can tell you all one thing, I won't be choosing grey for a card in a long time. Not only did I end up not knowing how to color the image I also didn't have any grey mulberry roses that would go with this card. I ended up having to use Fred She Said Designs flowers. I ordered them a while back and finally found a way to use them on a Magnolia card. I think they add a sweet touch. The sentiment comes from Sentiments 4 You, they have an awesome collection of freebie sentiments and this one so happnens to be one of them. Sorry for having to cut this post short today (as if my other ones are any longer, lol) but I have a lot of house work to get done. And before I go here is my card.

Wedding Bells Ring...

My cousin Pauline is getting married on Sunday and I desperately had to make a Wedding card and what better way to introduce her to the adorable Magnolia stamps then by making her a card using a Magnolia stamped image. Because she's never seen a card like this I'm not sure if she'll like it. I know I love it but she's kind of a plain Jane so I'm having my doubts.
Instead of using patterned papers I embossed it because I wanted it white I had to put an effect on the white paper. This is my first embossed Magnolia card. I colored the image with pencil crayons and the flowers come from the very talented Jacque. The sentiment comes from the Sentiments 4 You blog and I just love it. I added the border around it to give it a classy look.
So here's my card. Let me know what you think...will she like it?
