Just Magnolia #3 A Sketch

A great sketch by Bev this week at Just Magnolia.
Wednesdays and Thursdays have turned out manic in my life this past few weeks - this means Fridays have been cleaning up the mess Weds and Thrs have left behind so it was a relief to drop everything as settle down to make a card. Sadly I think my Mojo is lost somewhere in the mess. This card fought back all the way.
I used papers from Cosco and a Tilda image sent to me by the lovely Tara (I think - I've started to pencil on the back who my images are from - this one missed, but if it wasn't from Tara it was from the equally lovely Tab).
Tilda is coloured in distress inks and cut with oval nesties. I used a Basic Grey flouris stamp in the corner and added flower cut with the EK Success retro flower punch.

I haven't finished the inside as yet, a bout of whishi-washiness crept over me and I couldn't make up my mind what to use, but looking at it on screen I think ovals echoing the front would be best.
Materials
BC - White linen : DP - Cosco : Magnolia Image : Distress re-inkers : Basic Grey flourish stamp : Punches - Ek Success retro flower and Friskers border : Rest from stash
