It's the second Tuesday in July and it's time for a new colour challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. Here's the card that I created.
Suzan is our hostess of the month. She has chosen the colour combo of red, white and blue for the challenge. I hope you will play along with our challenge--you have a couple of weeks! For inspirations, have a look at the fabulous cards of my DT teammates displayed at the challenge blog HERE. Diana is offering a $25 Gift Certificate for her store Magnolia-licious to the lucky winner.
This Magnolia image that I've coloured with my markers is of Tilda Loves Flowers--just like me...LOL
This style of card was created by Marianne and she calls this a 'secret card'. I found her tutorial for it HERE at the Scandinavian on-line magazine StampARTic.
A side view here so you can see the layers.
The fold of the card is at the top.
This image is of the adorable Tilda as a Star.
