Easter Greetings - Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge #3


It's time for a new challenge at Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog.  The theme for the challenge is...Easter/Spring.
Hope you'll come and play with us. For more details on how to join in the fun, hop over to the  Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. While you're there, have a look and be inspired by the cards/projects of my awesome DT Teammates. 
So this is what I came up with for my DT card...

The images were coloured with Letraset markers--Promarkers and Pantone Trias (colours listed below if you're interested)
I am featuring a couple of new stamps from the Little Easter Collection 2013 from Magnolia.  The one on the front of the card is Tilda Decorate Easter.  Isn't she adorable?

And in the inside of my card, I have used Edwin With Daffodil.  He's just as cute! 

Both of these images are available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious. She has a vast collection of other Magnolia stamps as well--both full-size and mini ones. If you don't see the particular one you are looking for in the store, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
And newly available at Magnolia-licious are those wonderful Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet.
Don't overlook the selections of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design, Cheery Lynn Designs and Joy! Crafts.
Not only are you being offered discounted prices and excellent services, you also get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase! Sweet.
