Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to our Magnolia Licious Summer Fun blogYou should have arrived from Tamara's blog. I know she had a beautiful creation to share with you. Isn't her work just amazing?

Happy Birthday, to my best friend and sister in Christ, Kelly! I hope your birthday is fabulous. I created this shabby chic tray for her birthday.

I chose Prima paper and embellishments from the "Butterfly Collection" to show case this sweet Tilda. I used Tilda with a bow. She is colored with Copic and paper pieced her outfit.
I used lots of fun embellishments - resin, metal, flowers, lace, tags, glass bottle, wooden objects, feathers, paper scrolls, tulle, and ribbon. I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and Magnolia Doo Hickey Dragonfly dies.
