Sneak Peek-MFP, A Heinrich Company

I cased Melina aka mepylant on Splitcoaststampers as she is the reigning Queen this week. Melina is such
a sweet girl and has a gallery full of CAS cards. I chose this card to case. I'm using a soon-to-be-released stamp set called Mother's Magnolias from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company. It's a great set for Mother's Day, Easter, Birthdays,  etc. The release will be next Tuesday and that is when the blog hop begins. Hope you'll join us here.

As you can see, my card is very simple. I stamped the magnolia twice, colored, popped on and made the strips from black scraps. I'm using Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company cardstock called Morning Sun. My bottom pearls really are the same size...I promise. :-) One of them looks different and I think it is because of the way the light hit it.

This may be my last card until Monday. If so, hope you all have a spectacular weekend. Thanks for visiting!

I love those black strips on the yellow card. It's one of my favorite combinations. And your flowers are beautiful. I was out doing errands this morning and everything is blooming and the trees are leafing out. The pollen is bad but the view is spectacular.

Can't wait for the magnolia trees on our street to bloom. We have star burst ones and the standard ones and they are sooo pretty! Yo have coloured these fabulously and love the two black strips with the pearl accents.

I've been MIA all week, Benzi, and don't know if I'll ever get caught up on visiting all my fav blogs. This card is so incredible! Love the fussy cut flowers. I did see your comment on my card entered into the MFP challenge -- thank you. I try to enter as often as I can (in the face of 4 DT commitments -- lol.) Please know that I have browsed each of your postings during the past week just didn't leave a comment on every one. :-D Hugz.
