Magnolia Monday #10 - Summertime, and the Livin' is Easy!

Happy Monday Everyone!
Another week has passed, gosh mine was a busy one, I've been on a room redo of my crafting space and I'm so glad it's finally done.
I'd like to share it with you and so yesterday I did a quick video tour and I'd love you take a look!

For those of you who prefer photos they will be up later and I'll add a link here.
Photos up and you can see them In This Post

Anyway I managed to squeeze in some crafting yesterday and have a new card as it is another Magnolia Monday!

Guylou's Inimitability - 1 Ribbon, 2 Papers and 3 pieces of Bling

Card Recipe:
Image - Picnic Tilda and Picnic Quilt (looks like it's discontinued as it's out of stock everywhere)
Paper - Daisy Dear by Heidi Grace for Colorbok
Medium - Copic Markers
Sentiment - Target $1 Spot
Flower Die - Dayco
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Clear Buttons - Stash
Glitter - Glamour Dust Crystal

After die cutting the flowers I ran them through the Big Shot with an embossing folder and then gave them a spritz for some shine and added the glittery button to the center.
I masked the two images and Tilda looks so happy to be outside enjoying the Summer sunshine.
I hope you enjoyed it and I'd love to your Magnolia creations so please link them up below!
