Sweet Magnolia

Today I am entering this card into two challenges -- Just Magnolia, Paper Piecing and Magnolia Stamp Lovers, Buttons. I love Magnolia stamps and this is the first time I have used this one. . I paper pieced the bandanna, pinafore and socks. The frame is a Martha Stewart corner and border punch. I used a sizzix die and ran it through my cuttlebug paisley folder for texture. I just have to tell you about the ribbon. I really love the ribbon. Yesterday two of my stamping friends and I got together and died a bunch of white seam binding! I just love how they turned out. My friends were teasing me because I got heavy-handed with my colors when I wanted a lighter look. Today I will try to see if I can get some lighter colors, although on this ribbon I did much better. Here is my card and the links to the challenges. The second picture is of all the ribbon we dyed! It looks so pretty all bunched together.  http://justmagnolia.blogspot.com/   and   http://magnoliastamplovers.blogspot.com/.
