Orange for Memory Box

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I am enjoying these fall colors.  No color in the leaves here, but lots
on my cards.

These pretty magnolias are masquerading as garden flowers today.

I've cut them from a background piece in my box that was done with Color Burst powders.

After I die cut the flowers I sponged the edges with Tangerine ink.

The Butterfly was cut from another piece in the background box that had been
smooshed with yellows.  I die cut the outline piece from a Snippet of black.

I didn't add a sentiment because I'm not sure what occasion it will go for.

Such a beautiful card Bonnie! Who knew a magnolia could masquerade as a garden flower and look so beautiful doing it?!! I guess you did! LOL Love these blooms and I love that gorgeous butterfly. Only brown dried up leaves here, wonder if we will see much color this year. sigh Hugs, Brenda

We waved goodbye to our very last Monarch on the porch on Monday, Bonnie! You've reminded me how much I'll miss them.
In a beautiful way - and I love your Magnolia-turned-garden-flowers!

Great way to use up those backgrounds, Bonnie. You'd never know those beautiful orange flowers weren't meant to be garden flowers and that lovely butterfly thinks so too.
