Wee Love You Bunches at Magnolia-licious!

Hello Sweet Visitors,

Today is "W-Wednesday" at Magnolia-licious! Today, I chose to showcase Sylvia Zet's Love You Bunches stamp which you can find at the Magnolia-licious store HERE.

My card colors are NAVY BLUE AND GOLD. I know, it looks black and some sort of orangish, but it's not. LOL I love the adorable outfit that the little gal is wearing. I chose to do a bit of paper piecing and have her outfit match the paper. I added some lace, a Doohickey Die border cut and swirl, and a doily. I also chose to add the yellow pearls inside the smaller flowers. You can't see it, but the wings of the bee are covered in glitter to add some sparkle. The centers of the sunflowers are brown, not yellow as they look in the shot. I added a navy blue ribbon and gold heart charm. I find hair to be the most difficult aspect of painting the images. I am REALLY trying to improve my hair coloration.

It's funny, I was just looking back to my early blog posts and found this scrapbook page. I deliberately chose that background paper because it looked psychedelic! LOL Think I identified with the little gal in the stamp image? I think that is why I fell in love with that stamp! Look at the border of my pants and top! That photo was of me in the 60s. Yes, I was barefoot and up a tree! Some things never change! I'm still barefooted most of the time! I'm not into climbing trees anymore. I might break a hip or something! On the right of the scrapbook page are the beaded leather strips I used to wear in my hair.

If you have time, hop on over to the Magnolia-licious Store and check out the new products that Diana is getting in! There are some yummy new products coming very soon and you don't want to miss out!

Thank you for stopping by! I love reading your comments. Thank you for each and every one!

Fantastic job on your card. I love the "real" colors of navy and gold. Strange how some colors look different when photographed. Everything on your card is perfect.

I think this card is wonderful - and you did a great job on her hair. I agree that hair is hard to color but you did very well.
