Flowers Say Hello


We're back from our holiday break at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog with our first challenge for the year 2012. The so ever talented Cabio is our hostess for the month of January and for the colour challenge she has chosen the colours pink, white and red. So here's my DT card.

I am featuring this adorable Tilda image called Tilda with Peony Tails. She is from Magnolia's newest collection Sweet Crazy Love 2012.
Check out this collection at Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious. I don't know how they do it, but Tilda keeps getting cuter with each new collection. Diana has a fabulous selection of anything and everything Magnolia (stamps--regular size and mini version, doohickey cutting dies, magazines) and she offers fab discounts and you earn store credits too.

That exquisitely designed circle die cut is from a Memory Box die that you can get at Magnolia-licious also. They are gorgeous!!! I need to get more of their dies, but...LOL...have to wait a bit until after I pay my credit card bill. (I'm cringing already...haa haa.)

The heart shape part on this card is actually a mini easel card. There's a hidden sentiment underneath that says 'Flowers say Hello from the Heart'. I thought this was perfect to go with this Tilda image and that's why I've gone a bit overboard with all the flowers...LOL.

All these challenges I am entering (except for the last one) has a 'new' theme, so my new items are the new Magnolia Tilda stamp and the Memory Box die.

Hi Norma!
What a super idea to put a small easel card onto a big base. This way the flowers don't get flattened when it is closed. Your flowers are gorgeous. I love how you have colored Tilda and thanks for giving the colors. I love the design papers.
Just gorgeous. I am really loving these shaped easel cards.
Hugs Maz
