Hi again!  I know...first I'm not here at all and then I come twice on the same day!  I managed to finish a card for a few challenges I like and figured I'd go ahead and get it posted.  It's for Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar Challenge #151 (anything goes), Bunny Zoe's Monthly Challenge (ribbon or twine) and 7 Kids College Fund Challenge #45 (diecuts and/or punches).

Here is my card for the challenges:

I started with a card base of SU Vintage Violet and layered with patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks 6x6 pad.  I machine-stitched around all the panels.  I used Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs and Parisian Accents diecuts for my frame and corner accents.  I added Buttercup Liquid Pearls to both.  My sweet Magnolia image is Tilda Holding Daffodil from the Butterfly Dreams collection.  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored her with my Copics.  I added a bit of Yellow Stickles to the daffodil.  I cut her out and popped her up on the motif frame.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  A ribbon bow and button and a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers finished up my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  That's it for me for today.  See you tomorrow for another fun Mo's DP2 Challenge!
