Just Magnolia Challenge Week 69

Hello everyone and I hope you had a great weekend - I sure did - although it went by wsy too quickly for my liking! Today the kids come home and the chaos begins all over again. Oh well I have till 9:00 tonight - so I will enjoy every minute!! My card today was made for Just Magnolia Challenge. To be honest this card took me way too long to make - I revamped it a couple of times and still I am not completely satisfied with the results. Oh well that is how it goes sometimes I guess. I used my new Magnolia stamps and a stamp from my favorite sentiment stamp set from C.C. Designs. I didn't use very many copics for coloring as lots of her was paper pieced - oh I guess I did use a few to color the suitcase - I used W1, W3, W5 and W7 for that and E41 and E44 for the stick part. I used my label nestabilities, some lace, gingham ribbon, Tim Holtz distress inks for backgrounds and edging, sizzix oval tag die cut and some gold gel pen for adding dots to finish. Thank you for stopping by for a visit and all your kind comments. Have a fabulous Monday!!

Your stamping friend
