For a special lil’ princess

magnolia curtsy
I think that this is the first time that i have inked this little sweetheart up… Embarrassed smile
magnolia curtsy
I found the sketch for this over at the crafts 4 eternity challenge site, and just fell in love with it..
I have basically used all magnolia papers ( SOMETHING OLD SOMTHING NEW)and a few flowers from my stash.. which have been stickled and stamens pulled out and replaced with pearls.. lol..  i am a butcher really..

Morning Rach,
She's just beautiful. I like the pearls instead of stamens idea :)
You have inked her up before Rach. I remember the card! She was in pink and you used the Martha stewart trillis punch on the card. I remember because it was one of the first cards I saw when I found your fab blog!
God I sound like a stalker!!
