My first Magnolia Card!

Hi scrappers!! How's your week going so far? Mine is going great! Today is my mom's bday!! And we're going out to celebrate Smileys, we are going to take her to her favorite restaurant and then to the mall to buy her a gift. I think moms are very hard to surprise, specially mine! Because she's always suspicious about things lol,  so I decided to play it safe this time and instead of giving her a surprise, I'll just go with her to buy the gift. And of course! I made her a card last night with a Magnolia stamped image Linda gave, thank you Linda!! The stamped images are really cute, I can't wait to create more cards with them! So here's the card:


I used a past Midnight Madness sketch that I liked, I tried to distress the paper but I'm not sure how to do that yet, so you can't really see my attempt in this pictures lol but "googling" around I found a perfect tool for this: the Edge Distresser (Heidi Swapp) or the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser! I'm not sure which one is better but you can always go to CraftCritique.com to check what are the best craft products.


Anyways, thank you so much for visiting my blog and before I leave I recommend you to go to the Bon's Scraps site, Bon is celebrating her 100th post with a fabulous candy.
I hope you have a wonderful day!
Happy scrapping!
