Just Magnolia

Finally...here's my card for the Just Magnolia challenge/blog hop, based on Mina's great sketch. I really intended to put the three items across the bottom, but Tilda's feet got in the way, so the little yellow daisies had to move to the left. Then the right corner looked naked, so I added the flower pot there. Then the yellow daisies looked lonely, so I added a few little white flowers, too. I hope you can still see the other elements of the sketch, though. What can I say? I have a hard time following things just as they are...I'm so bad about that. Anyhow, here's the sketch and my card:

Fun card. Love the colors and the buttons. I too have trouble following instructions - that's what makes our creations our own.

Just wanted to say hello and thanks for submitting to the challenge for the journaling junkie #78 (they are not too old).
I am blown away, totally inspiring.
Is there any chance you could email me the journaling of the little intimacies? That is if you're ok with me posting your LO's and journaling on the JJ blog on the 1st of MAy when the challenge closes.
This has been a really tough call for the team and many haven't wanted their stories to be out there for all to read.
