Magnolia-Licious challenge

Hi everyone, this is the first card that I've posted in a while. My husband has been ill so I haven't had time to make any cards, but he is on the mend so, I can create again. My card is for the inspiration challenge at the Magnolia-Licious blog. I started with a white card base from PTI, my base layers are dark chocolate, also PTI. The yellow and white design paper is from K & Company, the Smitten specialty pack. The orange, grey, and white stripe paper is from Stampin' up. I don't know the name of the paper, I had it in my stash. The rhinestones are from Basic grey. I used a decorative swirl die from Sizzix in my Cuttlebug to cut the Gina K fresh asparagus paper I used under the green and orange Prima flowers. The white lace is from Offray, and I used my cricut die cutter to cut out an end table shape from the Heritage cartridge. I used my cuttlebug to cut out an oval from the Spellbinders petite small ovals dies, and then ran it through the cricut birds and swirls, embossing folder. I then sponged it with memento cantalope ink. My focal image is Midsummer Tilda and I colored her with my copic markers. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.


  1. Dee, glad to see you joining us at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. Your card is beautiful. Lovely Tilda image and you've coloured here beautifully. Wonderful layout--I like the clean look of your card. Beautiful DP's and I like the embossed paper too. Gorgeous flowers. Terrific job on the card.


  2. Glad to hear your husband is on the mend and you can get back to crafting. Love Tilda in her brown dress, and the flowers are so pretty. Thanks for joining us at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The new challenge starts tomorrow. Hope to see you back. LindaC

  3. Hi Dee,
    Very happy to hear your husband is getting better and you have time to make cards again :o)
    Your card is lovely. Love the flowers in Tilda's hand. Don't think I have ever seen her in a brown dress, but you have done a grand job colouring her and the colour looks terrific. Pretty paper and lace as well. You really did a great job using the colours in our photo.
    Thank you for joining our Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
    Hugs, Candy
