A Happy Birthday Card - Magnolia-licious September Colour Challenge


Since today's the 2nd Tuesday of September, it's time for a new colour challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. Here is my DT card.

Our wonderfully talented Tracy is the hostess for the month of September and she has chosen these colours for the challenge: orange, teal and brown.

Oooh, I love love love how these colours look together, don't you? I think I have found a new favorite colour combo!!! Woo-hoo... (Tracy, thanks for introducing it to me.) You will see me using these colours again and again...LOL.

This adorable gal is called Tilda With Peony from Magnolia's Wedding Collection 2010.

An excellent source of anything and everything Magnolia is the Magnolia-licious on-line store and Diana provides fabulous services. Not to forget also that many of the stamps are available in the mini version.

I've used my markers to colour the images for this card. As with most of my Tildas, I've cut her out and mounted her on pieces of foam tape/dimensionals, although you probably can't tell from the pictures. It takes longer to do it this was, but I do love the more 3-dimensional look this gives the card.

This is the view of the inside of the card.

I have another Tilda here sitting at the edge of a blank circle where I can write my personal birthday message on. This image is called Tilda With Butterfly Jeans and she is part of Magnolia's Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011.

I was looking for a birthday poem for the page opposite and I found this one from an old birthday card that I have received from someone in the past.

I am using this card as my entry to the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Challenge #86 - Finishing Touches (finish the inside of your card)
Simply Magnolia - Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge - Week 120 - Flowers and Swirls
Top Tip Tuesday - Challenge #51 - Birthday Time
Everybody-Art-Challenge - Challenge #159 - Flowers

I hope you will come and play along with us in our challenge. There's is a prize of a $25.00 Gift Certificate from Magnolia-licious. And to further inspire you, have a look at fabulous cards and projects that the other DT gals have created HERE!

Thank you for taking the time to drop by. I very much appreciate your visit. And I am more than grateful to those who leave me a comment as I do enjoy reading what you write.
Enjoy you day!
