Just Magnolia 8 - A Sketch by Rach

Yeey, it's Friday and that means it's time for a new challenge on the Just Magnolia blog!
Thanks so much to everyone who played along on last weeks challenge.
This week we have a fabulous sketch designed by the extremely talented and lovely Rach! Thanks so much for the sketch Rach, I loved working with it.

This month's Guest Designer is a fabulous DT sister of mine.
We are both part of the 'Inspirational Inkettes' (the 'Inky Impressions' design team) and she makes the most beautiful cards, so be sure to go and check out Simonne's blog!
Sem: *mwah*

Our sponsor for this week is SimonSaysStamp


and the prize on offer is SIX Copic Sketch Markers!!


Here's this weeks sketch, you can rotate the sketch and resize the elements, as long as you follow the original sketch so your entry qualifies for the prize draw.

Now, on to my card ;o)
I have to warn you, you might want to grab your sun glasses for his one, lol. I'm sooo ready for summer!!
For my card I used the gorgeous background stamp from the 'chasing butterflies' collection as the main image, and coloured it with my copics.
I've cut some flowers out of the DP I used and combined them with punched flowers. I embossed the punched flowers with a Cuttlebug embossing folder that I first inked with some red ink so they wouldn't be to plain.

Hope you like my card and have fun with this weeks sketch!

Hoi Naoual,

WOW, schitterende kleuren! Ik moet eerlijk bekennen dat ik dit weer (16gr. en bewolkt) heerlijk weer vindt. ;)

Het papier wat ik gebruikt heb is van S.E.I. de Chocolat serie. Ik heb deze gekocht bij de groothandel en er was niet veel meer :'( anders had ik er wel een stuk of 30 meegenomen!
Bij mijn kaart staan de nummers die ik gebruikt heb, misschien kan je daar nog wat mee (bestellen ergens denk ik)

Fijn weekend.

*En hopla, we gaan een schetsje doen ;)*
