Reach for the Stars!

Hello again! 
Oh so soon!  I don't usually do a posting one day after another one, but this is the 2nd Tuesday of the month, so it is time for a new colour challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
My DT card for this challenge is this criss cross card.


The super talented Angela is our hostess for the month of March and her challenge is to use 3 colours of the rainbow.  Here's a picture to help you decide which to choose.  For my card, as you can see, I've chosen purple, blue and green.   


Being featured on the front of my card is this adorable Tilda Catching Stars from Magnolia's newest stamp collection, Princes & Princesses Collection 2012. Many more oh so cute images from the collection.  I can't wait to colour them.  You can check them out at Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store. She has a fabulous collection of full size and mini stamps, doohickey cutting dies and magazines. Also available are those exquisite Memory Box, Poppystamps and Marianne Design dies, and other crafting tools and products. Check them out HERE.


The criss-cross panels form a pocket and I've made a pull-out tag to be inserted into the pocket.


I've chosen another Tilda from the new collection for my pull-out.  I chose this Sweet Princess Tilda to match the first TIlda because she is also carrying a star wand--I'm keeping to the star theme...LOL.  I left a blank space to write personal messages.  I'm thinking that this card can be used as a graduation card.      



I hope you will join us in our colour challenge.  To inspire you further, have a look at the fabulous cards of my DT teamates HERE.  There is of course a prize for the challenge, a $25 Gift Certificate from Diana's store Magnolia-licious.


As for me, I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simply Magnolia - Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes Challenge #111 - Feminine Flare

That's all for now.  Thank you so much for taking the time to drop by.  Appreciate you visit and your lovely comments--I enjoy reading them.  Have a wonderful week and get crafting!!!
