Papertake with new Magnolia


I just had to ink one up... I wouldn't call it a disorder but obsessive compulsive... that's me!

I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly and it worked nicely with the idea I had in my head at the moment.

If you by chance are wondering about the stitching around the edges it's NOT made freehand, I'm too old for that ;)
I use a ruler and a tool that is meant to be used when marking sewing patterns on fabric - you know with the icky black paper under to make the actual markings. But it works fine for makebelieve stitching, I even used it on the oval on the inside of the card. Cheap solution (I'm fond of those)
