Just Magnolia Challenge #3/Magnolia Down Under

The sketch challenge for Just Magnolia this week is to use the following sketch...

and here is my card...



Stamps: Magnolia, Flourish
Ink: Momento, Copics, Garden Green
Paper: Bazzill Blings (yellow and green), DCWV
Embellishments: Prima’s, micro beads, rhinestones from stash, , Stickles, Blingz, Shimmerz
I posted several pictures because I wanted to try to show off the shimmer of this card. The Bazzill paper just shines in the sun as do the Blingz and Shimmerz.

I should also note that this card is my Mother's Day card for my MIL. Therefore, I am also posting this for the Magnolia Down Under challenge which is to make a Mother's Day card.
I colored Tilda and the Sunflower with Copics, and then went over the top with Blingz and Shimmerz. I added copper Stickles to the center of the sunflower.
The flower is Prima's hydrangias and is finished off with a little "Got Flowers" flower with micro beads glued on.
The inside of the card is decorated very simply.

I am not sure if I will use this as a Mother's Day or Birthday card.

Have a great week!

She's just adorable both times! I love shimmerz but haven't used it on Tilda yet. Think I need to give that some thought!
