A Sketch Challenge — my first Magnolia card

I recently gave away my first born child for a couple of Magnolia stamps from overseas (kidding) and used one for the first time. My inspiration came from this blog, http://tessa78.blogspot.com/2008/10/card-challenge-27.html, which I believe is mostly written in Finnish, but it was Kismet that I even found it! I was just clicking “Next blog” on Blogspot, which can bring up all sorts of interesting but non-papercrafting blogs, and there this one was. She has cute Magnolia cards and when I saw the challenge I had to jump on it.

I’ve stamped the angel in brown Stazon, and then colored her in with watercolor pencils and a waterpen. Then I’ve stippled and distressed in Desert Sand and Chocolate ink from CTMH. The file tag punch is from McGill and the corner punch is from SU. Ribbons are from my stash, and then the “I miss you” stamp, Sasparilla papers, Bitty Brads and Edge Anchors are all from CTMH. I’ve also added some Prisma Glitter to the wings, and Sparkles to a few snowflakes – also from CTMH. This was a fun card to make! Thanks to Tessa78 and her fun blog — I hope you will visit it!
