Magnolia Wish

Hi!  I'm back!  It's time for another challenge at Fusion.
While I took some elements from the sketch, I mostly focused on the photo for my card, taking the white and green floral theme to come up with this card:



The flower was stamped in the upper-right corner of a piece of X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copics.  I stuck to the BVs and Ns for the petals, which made them look whitish with a hint of purple.  I went over various parts of the image with Prismacolors to deepen the shaded areas or add more purple tones.  The sentiment was white-embossed and comes from an old PTI set "Mum's the Word".  I specifically wanted a big, multi-word sentiment to balance out the big flowers.



Thanks for visiting!  Head on over and check out the fabulous cards made by the rest of the design team.  You'll be glad you did!

I'm linking this up to the PaperCraft Crew Tic Tac Toe challenge (Emboss-Elements of Sprintime-Birthday) and the Anything Goes challenges at Addicted to Stamps and More and Simon Says Stamp.
