Woo-hoo...I've been given the opportunity to be a Guest Designer at the It's a Magnolia Challenge Blog for the midway reminder of their IAMC Christmas Challenge #68. The theme is Clean and Simple.
A rare card for me to do, CAS, but here's the card I finally came up with.
Although this was suppose to be simple, I found it very hard to keep it that way. I really had to restrained myself from putting any embellishment...LOL--not even one teensy weensy pearl. (Oh please pretty please, may I?) Sigh...I guess CAS really isn't my style. Most likely though I'll end up embellishing before mailing this out to someone..hee hee.
I'm featuring a couple of Magnolia images and I have also used a Magnolia sentiment stamp:
- Jingle Tilda from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011
- Old Swedish Church from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012
- Merry Christmas Text from the Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010
Check out Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious--an excellent source for your Magnolia stamps, both full-size and mini stamps. 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 released from Magnolia and in store now is the Special Moments Collection 2013. Check it out HERE. The images are oh-so-adorable!
