Happy Birthday - Magnolia-licious 'Monochromatic'


Our current challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog is 'Monochromatic'.  Pick one colour and stick with it!  Visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog for complete challenge details and how you can join in the fun.  And check out the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created for your inspirations.

I love this monochromatic theme!  It was sooo... much easier finding designer/patterned papers in various shades of one colour rather than trying to find co-ordinating papers for colour combo that works.  The colour I've chosen for my card is green--more specifically olive green.

And the inside of my card...

Close-ups of the Magnolia images being featured:

- Princess Pea Tilda from the Once Upon A Time Collection 2013

- Virgo Tilda from the Zodiac Collection 2014

The stamps for these images, as well as other equally adorable images can be found at Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee StampsWild Rose Studios and Candibeans.
Prices are discounted!

Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStampsMagnolia Doohickey.  ALL dies are currently on SALE at 25% off!!!  Have a look!
You get excellent customer service and what's more, you get to earn 2% in-store credit to be applied to future purchases.  How cool is that!

Just a reminder...for your chance to win a Surprise Package Prize from Magnolia-licious--there is a weekly random draw--all you have to do is leave a comment--the more you comment the greater your chances.  ALL the comments made on all the postings at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and the related postings on the DT gals' blogs will be entered into the draw.

What a lovely card! As always, I love your coloring and the florals.

I think it's difficult to make a pretty card with only one color. Maybe I should try.
