Love Is In The Air For Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge

Hello Everyone! I'm sorry that I  haven't posted a card in awhile, but my Mother-in-law,
Suzanne Ruth Galle Laverty, passed away the end of April. She was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at 26 and lived with it for 48 years.  Throughout her life, her faith in God was strong.  She was always grateful and felt very blessed.  I can't tell you how much she will be missed.

Today at Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge, we are being hosted by the very talented  Jacque.  She has created this wonderful sketch for us to use.

I hope that you will join in on this fun challenge! Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the winner of this week's wonderful prize from Jacobi NL.

For my card, I have rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the left.  I have used My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Howdy Doody Design Papers. Rose Scent Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  For the frame that Tilda is sitting on, I used Hot Off The Press Layered Labels Template. After tracing and cutting out Fancy Label A, I stamped it using Sandylion French Impressions Clear Stamp Set and then added pearls from Hero Arts. The "LOVE" was stamped using Impression Obsession WP-17 Sentiments II Clear Stamp Set. This a great set to have, because it has all sorts of words that you can combine or use separately. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Recollections, and All Natural Accents. The lace is from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by to visit me! I'll be by to visit your blogs soon! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!

Big Hugs,

So sweet and lovely! Oh Suzan, you have colored Tilda beautifully and the DPs are the perfect match with all the roses and flowers! I like the die-cut shape you used to mat Tilda on, and the pretty crochet lace on the bottom. Have a wonderful weekend!
