Sending Love Your Way - Magnolia-licious 'Anything Goes With Pearls'

Hello.  Happy Tuesday.

We're midway in our current challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The theme is 'Anything Goes With Pearls.'  There's one more week for you to join us--I hope you can play along.
Please hop to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to get complete details on the challenge and don't forget to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you.

Here's the card that I came up with--it's a front-panel centre side-step card.

This challenge theme is right up my alley as pearls are one of my favorite embellishments.  I usually add pearls to my cards anyway, but one this card I've added a lot more of them than I usual do.

Here's a view of the inside of my card.

I love the fancy-fold feature of this type of card--it's one of my favorite card styles.
(You can find the template that I used HERE if you're interested.)

Here's closer look at the Magnolia Stamps images being showcased.

- Tilda With Heart from the You Are So Special Collection 2011

- Kangaroo Tilda from the Australian Collection 2012.
I've had this stamp for a long time but I think this is the first chance I've got to ink and colour the image --pathetic, eh? since she's just adorable.

Magnolia Stamps are available from 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, e-mail Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.
And other-brand stamps that the store carries include Stamping BellaWee StampsWild Rose StudiosSaturated Canary and Crafter's Companion.
