Midweek Magnolias Challenge #136-"Anything Goes With a Magnolia Image"

Good Wednesday morning dear blogging friends!!

And how is your week going so far??!!  It's been pretty busy for me here...trying to play catch up on just about!!

Today we begin a brand new challenge at Midweek Magnolias AND it's super easy..."Anything Goes With a Magnolia Image"!!  Our wonderful sponsor is Magnolia Sweden!

Well in my quest to shake myself out of the winter blues I found this cute little paper mache pot and decided to get a jump on my flower pots by making paper!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
it was hard photographing this as it is a little bit tall so the details were hard to capture in just one pic so I had to take quite a
here is the pot before and after...
 the flowers were made using Go Kreate #360020 and #120020...
I misted them with water...crumpled them and then straightened to dry...then shaped into flowers...
DP is Graphic 45 Secret Garden...
 this sweet little Tilda is "Hear No Evil Tilda" from the Pink Ribbon 2015 collection...
 I added a wooden flower button strung through with embroidery floss...
 and the third...
 the back...
I set the flowers on wooden doweling distress with Rangers "Mowed Lawn" Distress Ink...
butterflies are Joy Craft...
 OOOPPPSSS forgot to add pearls to the center of the butterflies...
 and the bottom of the back...
Oh boy that was FUN...I can't wait to do another!!  Now it's time to hop on over to Midweek super talented team mates have some gorgeous creation to inspire you...then come on over and join us!!
