Magnolia-licious Blog Hop meets Wild Orchid Craft Challenge!

Hello, thanks for joining me for another Blog hop for Magnolia-licious! Our Blog Hop theme this month is Nautical. Perfect for those of you who has received the Summer Kit. I haven’t got my stamps from Diana yet, but one of the best things about the Magnolia Stamps, they are all so versatile! This is a background from the Wedding Collection, and the Jolly Roger Pirate from the Fairytale Collection. If you have come from Our newest Design Team Member April’s Blog you are on the right track! Next on the list is Janiel.
This is my first time painting such a large area, this background stamp is gorgeous! I love the big ole sun! I wanted to try a sunset with pink and blues, I think it came out pretty good. I could use a little more practice though. Always room for improvement!
Over at Wild Orchid Crafts Challenges this week’s challenge is to use lace. I attached my lace is the center of the lace so the back part could fold up and be a “stopper” for the Easel to stand, instead of using flowers like I normally use. You can get the lace and all these beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I will have a full list below.
Everybody Art – Blue and White
Stampin Royalty – Splish Splash
Paper Play – Blue Cream and another color

Paper – GCD Papers and SU cardstock
Ink – Versafine – Distress Inks and SU colors
Accessories – WOC Lace, 25mm Baby Blue Roses, White Flat Gardenia flowers, 30mm Lilac Wild Roses, 10mm Lilac Roses, 15mm Ivory Roses, Stampin up Gem Brads, Misc Ribbon and charm.
