Magnolia-licious June Colour Challenge

Happy Tuesday!  It's the 2nd one in June, so... it's time for the new monthly colour challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  Here's what I came up with for my DT card...

I hope you will play along with us in our colour challenge.  There is $25 Gift Certificate from Magnolia-licious for a random prize.  My DT teammates have created fabulous cards to further inspire you--have a look at the challenge blog HERE.  

I am featuring this adorable Rose Garden Tilda from the new Summer Memories Collection 2012 from Magnolia.  I've done the colouring of the images for this card with my Letraset markers (list below).

This sitting Tilda is Tilda With Ponytail and she is from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011.  The stamps for the images I have used here are available from Magnolia-licious on-line store.  Diana has large selection of both full-size and mini stamps.  She also carries other crafting tools including cutting dies from Magnolia,  Memory Box and PoppyStamps.

Hi Norma, another completely gorgeous creation. I've just realized that I LOVE the way you fold your cards - side to side instead of flipping up! How beautifully you've finished the inside of your card - always with the extra image and the pretty flourishes! You got me thinking again and coveting some new dies...shame on you!!! Blessings and huggers, Barb <><

Candy said...
