Just Magnolia Sketch and a Porcupine!!

Good day all!
What an exciting start to our day - we had a porcupine climbing up our front tree!! The boys were super excited and I have to say I was too as I've never seen one before. I hope you enjoy the photo I've posted!

Anyways, on to today's card. I've been working on this for the last 3-4 days - I'm doing a little bit each day when I can snatch a minute or two, lol!! I've used the Just Magnolia sketch for this weeks challenge. I chose these colours to work with as I made a purchase of some individual prisma pencils and the aqua and lavender colours were ones I had wanted to get my hands on! I pretty much followed the sketch although I moved the sentiment slightly to the side as it looked better on my card! I used the gorgeous EK Success 'Parisian' border punch and also Fiskars Apron Lace. I used Blue Skies Glimmer mist spray on some plain white flowers and added a collage prima flower just under the bow. Sewing and circle nesties were also used.
Thanks for coming by today and leaving a comment. Always much appreciated and hopefully I'll get a little crafting time in this afternoon - it's rather rainy and overcast today. We're just back from strawberry picking so I'm off to tuck into some freshly picked strawberries and cream and watch a little bit of Wimbledon - perfect combination, lol!!!
