Angel Tilda in Blue - Magnolia-licious Challenge


This has got to be one of the fastest card I've made. LOL...I mistook the date of our challenge and thought I had another week to create my DT card. Instead there I was Sunday night scrambling in making this one. I looked over the cards I made last year and chose one of them and pretty well went with a similar design/layout, using different papers and image.

Oh yes, this is for the new colour challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog, seeing that this is a new month and it's the 2nd Tuesday of the month. Pat is our hostess for November. For the colour challenge, she has chosen the colours: blue and silver.

So, my card is this shaped easel card. This cute little angel is Halo Tilda and she is from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011. Check out this collection at Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious. Diana has a fabulous selection of anything and everything Magnolia (stamps--regular size and mini version, doohickey cutting dies, magazines,... discount and store credit too).

I hope you will join us in our colour challenge. There's is a prize of a $25.00 Gift Certificate for a shopping spree at the Magnolia-licious store. And to help in inspiring you, have a look at the fabulous cards and projects that the other DT teamates have created HERE!

As for me, a few challenges that I am entering with this card:
Charisma Cardz - Challenge 44 – Cutesy
Polka Doodles - Week 44 – A Shaped Card
Allsorts Challenge – Week 128 – Anything But a Square
Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge - Challenge 45 – Bright Colours and/or Sparkle
