It's A Beautiful Day

 Welcome back to another edition of Maggie Monday. 
This little cutie is called Flower Girl with Petals #3040 from Magnolia.  She can be used on a variety of cards not just wedding cards.   One of the things I did was used my Liquid glass as a paint.  I squeezed out a small amount onto some wax paper and picked up some on a fine paint brush and painted her shoes after I colored them.  It is hard to see in the photo, but they have a real nice shine to them.  They look like satin shoes.  I also took the guard off my corner rounder to make the scalloped edge on the paper mat.  This is not hard to do, just turn the corner rounder upside down so you can see where you are punching and line up the edge of the paper in to corner rounder.  It is easier to do than to describe how to do it.  Trust me.  LOL

All supplies are from Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted.
