for you

Happy Wednesday everybody!

A new challenge blog for us Magnolia addicts, Just Magnolia--Happy Week Two! Their theme this week is a colour challenge, so no sketch to follow. Yes!!! as I've been meaning to do another buckle card. I first saw this card at Claudia's blog and love the style because it's different. If you wish to create one, you can go to her blog Pretty Pressings and she's posted the instructions and measurements to make your own card. Just type in "buckle card" in her 'search' box. I've made some alterations for my card however.

I love this combination of of pink and green. I started thinking of soft pink and pastel green, but found this Basic Grey paper instead with a brighter pink and sort of a lime green colours. (Although you can't really tell from the pictures. How come the cards in my pictures never look exactly like they do in real life? Agghh!! Must be my camera...or the lighting...or most likely it's just me!!! LOL)

I'm using this Heart Jumper Tilda. It was the very very first Tilda that I ever coloured. I was making a Valentine card and it was the only stamp I had with a heart in it at the time. It's still one of my favorites. Anyway, here's the pink and green card.

There's a strip of paper that fits into a slot like a belt, thus the name "buckle card"--I thought that was a very appropriate name.



And the inside of the card is decorated a bit also.



Have a very nice day!



Stamp: Magnolia #215 Heart Jumper Tilda
Designer Papers: Basic Grey Archangel, Momenta A Family Affair Relations, Making Memories (pink green white stripes--don't know the name)
