Happy Tuesday!!! Today being the 4th Tuesday of the month, it's time for a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. This is my DT card.
Our monthly 2nd challenge is an inspiration challenge (the first one being a colour challenge) and Cabio who is our hostess for January has chosen this picture for your inspiration.
I hope you will come and play along with us in our challenge. And for more inspirations just have a look at fabulous cards/projects of my DT teamates HERE. There's random draw for a $25 Gift Certificate from Magnolia-licious.
Magnolia-licious is Diana's on-line store where those wonderful Magnolia products (stamps, doohickey cutting dies, magazines) are available. Check out also the gorgeous Memory Box dies there.
Now back to my card...it is another front panel side step card, but the front panel this time is off to the side instead of centered.
The images on this card are, of course, Magnolia's. This is my favorite Edwin. And I can really say that about this Edwin--it's my fave of all. I can't say that with Tildas though as there are just tooooo... many to single one out, so I have quite a number of favorite Tildas...LOL. This Edwin is called Edwin with Butterfly and he is from Magnolia's Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011. The house scenery image is called Welcome to a Lovely Home from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012. I've used my coloured pencils to colour the images for this card.
Oops almost forgot to mention...I made a wee substitution on the image. The original one had Edwin holding up a butterfly, but I replaced it with a wrapped heart from another Tilda image.
Here's how I've finished up the inside of my card.
Mushy sentiment...LOL. I love this adorable Tilda. And yes you guessed it, she is ONE of my favorites...haa haa. She is from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011 and she is called Sweetie Tilda.
