Love Grows Here For Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Color Inspiration Challenge



Hello Everyone!! It's the 2nd Tuesday in March, so it's time for the Color Inspiration Challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!!  I'm so excited to share my very first Magnolia-licious Challenge  Blog Design Team Card with you!! This fun challenge is being hosted by the very talented Angela who has chosen this wonderful photo to inspire us all.


All you need to do is use the colors in the inspiration photo along with a Magnolia Image on a card or project.  Your entry will give you the opportunity to be the lucky winner of a $25 Gift Certificate to Magnolia-licious, the best place to shop for Maggies!! It would make me so happy if you could join me and the rest of the talented Design Team for this challenge. I can't wait to see your beautiful creations!!

For my card, I used Spring Celebration Digi Design Papers from Design House Digital. I created a little scene with Water Can Tilda from Magnolia-licious. The Love Stack, Heart Blossoms and Flower Pot are from Stampourri. They were colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  I paper pieced Tilda's dress and shoes along with the flower pot and watering can with the Digi Design Papers. I added the clouds  using a cloud template, chalk ink and a rounded sponge wedge. And, I added a little Flowersoft to the edge of the flower pot.  The scalloped border was cut with the Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge <scallop2> + <Sclop2-s>.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Recollections and my stash. The ribbon is also from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by to visit me!! I always love hearing from you!! And, I hope that you can join in on the wonderful Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Color Inspiration Challenge.

Have a wonderful week!!

Big Hugs,
Suzan

Your card is just adorable. Love the paperpiecing of the dress and shoes. Great colours, it all looks very colourful and 'gezellig' as we say in The Netherlands. For you cosy might be the word :)

groetjes, Ellen
