It's the 2nd week of October, so it's time for a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. Here's my DT card.
It's a Colour Challenge and Candy, who is our hostess for the month of October, has chosen the colours blue, green and clear/white.
I have used Magnolia's Tilda With Straw Hat for the front of my card--she's becoming a favorite of mine--from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011. Isn't she sweet? She's available from Magnolia-licious, an on-line store for anything and everything Magnolia. This image is also available in the Mini Version.
I've used the Magnolia doohickey cutting die called Old Swedish Lace to border the oval die cut. (See my tutorial on how to do this if you don't already know how.)
And here's how I decorated the inside of my card. This other sweet gal is called Tilda with Pony Tail. She is from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011.
I've coloured both the Tilda images with my coloured pencils.
I hope you will come and join us in our challenge. Diana has offer a prize of a $25.00 Gift Certificate for your shopping pleasure at Magnolia-licious. And to further inspire you, have a look at fabulous cards and projects that the other DT gals have created HERE!
Now for me..LOL, here are a few challenges that I am entering with this card:
Crafting Life’s Pieces - Challenge #41 - October sketch
Bunny Zoe’s Crafts - Challenge 17 – Lace it up!
TOMIC – Challenge #19 – Magnolia Forever (use a sitting Tilda/Edwin and at least one doohickey die cut). My sitting Tilda is in the inside of my card as I consider the insides very much a part of my cards.
