Thinking of You - Crealies Guest DT Card

Hello.

I was honored to be asked by Annelies, owner of Crealies, if I wanted to be her guest designer and of course I said yes!  Annelies is from the Netherlands.  Her webshop Crealies has some really gorgeous templates and dies--shapes, borders, corners, flowers, leaves...  Check it out HERE.

So, I am the Guest Designer for the month of September for her Crealies Blog which you can find HERE.  This is the first of several cards that I have made--the rest will be shown later on during the month.


I have used Crealis products to create this card.  The shapes were made using the In-Shape Cutting Templates No. 7.  The flowers were created using Creative Flowers No. 02 dies and the leaves are from Creative Shapes No. 16 dies.

And this adorable image--and she is one of my favorite Magnolia images--is Rose Scent Tilda.  She is from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012.  I used markers to do the colouring.


This stamp is available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store HERE.  Diana has a vast collection of both the full-size and mini-size stamps.

I have made this into an easel card--one of my favorite types of cards.


From a different angle...
