Stamp & Create Product Spotlight ~ Charms

***ETA: I have added my card now. Oops!***

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a lovely day yesterday! I was showered with hugs and gorgeous home-made gifts from my boys and a beautiful bouquet of flowers from hubby.

I received a Magnolia tree from my crew last Mother’s Day and today, the first blossom opened up! Such a nice surprise. I have had to wait a whole year to see the blossoms of my tree. BTW, much to the amusement of my children, I named my tree, She is Maggie May. You know….Magnolia….I received her in May ;)

I have a couple of pictures I would love to share with you. I think these are the most beautiful spring trees.

Here is the single open blossom:

and here are others that are almost ready to open up:

Now, on to my card that I am sharing with you today! The product spotlight over at Stamp & Create this week is: Charms. That means that all charms will be 25% off. I think they are such a sweet way to add that little extra touch to your card. I just want to let you know that Lacey has added a whole bunch of new paper pads (yummy) and has re-stocked a lot of the more popular stamps!

For my card, I used the sweet Wild Rose stamps "Milton with Teddy". I colored him in with copic sketch markers. Such a quick and easy image to color. I stamped him out again on masking paper and then airbrushed around him to create a nice, soft background.

I added the "Love" charm to the main image panel with some baker's twine tied in a small bow.

The patterned paper is from MME Stella Rose collection and I layered two types of ribbon: ivory wrinkled and champagne net. I like layering my ribbon, I think it is such a nice look.

The sentiment is from Verve Stamps and I stamped it directly onto my card. I like this less fussy look.

I am entering this into the Papertake challenge which is anything goes!

Thanks for stopping by and have a tremendous day!

Hugs Jeanette
