I love you this much - Magnolia-licious Challenge #7

Happy Tuesday!

It's time for a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. Tracy is our host for the month of February and for our colour challenge, she has chosen the colours pink, black and red. Yikes...2 of those colours, black and red, are always real challenges for me to colour. Anyway, this is what I came up with.

This adorable gal is Tilda Wants a Hug from Magnolia's A Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010, available from Magnolia-licious on-line store. I like to cut out my coloured images and mount them on pieces of foam tape/dimensionals for a more 3-D effect, and that's what I've done here.

I am also using this card to join other challenges:
(sorry for the long list, but woo hoo...there's a common theme for most of these...LOL)

All That Scraps - Anything Goes
7 Kids College Fund - Challenge #14 - I (heart) you!
Simon Says - Love is in the Air!!
Stampin' for the Weekend - Challenge #3 - St. Valentine's Day
Creative Inspirations - Challenge #52 - Valentines/Love
Let's Ink It Up - February Challenge - Romance/Valentines Day
Paper Sundaes - Challenge #55 - Two or more images (I hope I don't have to have them on the front of my card...in the inside count, doesn't it?)
Stamp With Fun - Challenge 97 - Love
Cupcake Craft - Challenge 128 - Seeing Red
Crafty Cardmakers - Challenge #36 - Hearts
Basic Grey - Challenge 37 - All Heart (I have use a fabulously designed Basic Grey DP called Raspberry Cream from the Bittersweet Collection.)
All Sorts - Week 89 - It Must Be Love Love Love

I've decorated the inside of the card this way and I've used another Tilda Image. This one is called Tilda With Many Hearts, from the newly-released You Are So Special Collection 2011, also available from Magnolia-licious on-line store.

I hope you will play along with us in our challenge. Have a look at the FAB-U-LOUS creations of the other DT ladies, at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog here and let them inspire you. There is a prize of a $25 Gift Certificate from Magnolia-licious.

Hi Norma,
WOW! What a gorgeous work you have created!
I thought the outside was fabulous - until I saw the inside and now I don't know which I like the best!!!
I see that you have used many different mediums to colour your images - BRAVO!!!
Love how you have decorated the outside and that you have a very different opening on your card.
You have made you own flower again and it is as beautiful as always :o)
I am just blown away by all you have done on your card from the lovely paper to the many different dies and punches!! Love the little pearls in Tilda's hair.
Hugs, Candy
