A Little Bird Told Me - Magnolia-licious 'Anything Goes' Challenge


It's Team B's turn to post inspirational card/projects at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  A reminder that we're currently in the middle of our 'Anything Goes' challenge.  For complete details of the challenge and of how to join in the fun, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.

For my DT card, I have created this birthday card.

Yes, I know the kookaburra is actually not a 'little' bird despite my sentiment...tee hee--exercising my artistic licence here.

This is called a swing card--also know as a flip-flop card.  When the card is stretched open, the centre panel swings or flips over.

Being spotlighted are a couple of Magnolia cuties from older stamp collections:

- Tilda With Her Kookaburra from the Australian Collection 2012

Doo Bee Pops Tilda from the Special Moments Collection 2013

The stamps for these images are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  Magnolia-licious is an excellent source for other equally adorable Magnolia stamps--both full-size and mini stamps.  If you don't see the particular one you are looking for, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you.  The NEW 'Winter Wonderland Collection 2013' is utterly adorable!

Check out also those wonderful Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet and newly introduced to the store are stamps from Wild Rose Studio, Penny Black and Candibeans.
Prices are discounted!  Along with excellent customer service, you get to earn 2% in-store credit of every order which you can apply to future purchases.  Sweet!

Oh, have a look at the selection of cutting dies too!  The Memory Box die I've used here from Magnolia-licious is a favorite of mine:
- Memory Box 98288 Honeysuckle Vine
