It's time for Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog's first challenge in 2011. January is Cabio's month to pick the challenge themes for. For this first colour challenge, she has chosen the colour combo of Orange and Green.
And of course, I've made this into another easel card. I just love the easy way that you can put this type of cards on display.
This adorable image is called Cherry Tilda from Magnolia's Autum 2010 Collection, available from Magnolia-licious on-line store.
And yes, I just checked, Diana does have her in stock right now.
I have to correct how I coloured her. Do you see her fingers I had poking out among those cherries? LOL...I thought she had a piece of cloth to gather her cherries, like a kerchief or something, draped across her hand, but no, it's actually part of her dress. So for her fingers to be poking out that way, she'd have to have a hole in her dress...LOL. Silly me!!!
Anyway, a few challenges for this card:
Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge #44 - I used Claire's wonderful sketch.
Paper Sundaes Challenge #51 - Circles
Cupcake Craft Challenge #123 - Something New (see the notes below the next challenge)
Creative Inspirations Challenge #50 - To use Something New on your project/New Element.
I have a couple of die sets that I bought during this past holiday season: 1. the Sizzix decorative strip die called Flower Garden. This is so pretty. See the light orange strip at the left hand side? Looks like paper lace.
2. the Magnolia Doohikeys Leaf and Swirl dies. I love this set.
Charisma Cardz Challenge 1 - Birthday
Allsorts Week 85 - Fancy fold.
The inside of my card looks like this.
I hope you can join us in our Magnolia-licious orange and green challenge. There is a prize of a $25.00 gift certificate.
