Aloha for Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Color Inspiration Challenge

Aloha Everyone! Can you believe that it is already June! Where has the year gone! Before making my card for today, I went through my dies and pulled out all the Summer ones. I always forget to use the dies that I have in my stash. I found some cute ones to use to make this card!

Well, it's that time again for another Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Inspiration Color Challenge. The challenge is being hosted by the talented  Katie Tate who has chosen this wonderful photo to inspire us all.

The challenge is to use Pink, Orange, Green and White

I hope it inspires you to play along with us! All you need to do is to use a Magnolia image on your card or project. Your entry will give you the opportunity to be the lucky winner of a Gift Certificate to Magnolia-licious, the best place to shop for Maggies!  Diana also has the new Freedom Liberty Tilda and accessory stamps to match in stock!  I'm so happy that Magnolia came out with these stamps! I can't wait to ink them up!

For this challenge, I though it would be fun to make a pocket card. I die cut the pocket using Lifestyle Crafts Treat Bag.  The Design Papers that I used are from Me and My Big Ideas Destination Paradise 8 x 8 Paper Pad.  Flip Flop Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.

I made the grass fringe using some green raffia that I had saved from a gift that I had received. I'm so glad that I did, because I think it came out pretty cute from something that I recycled. I just placed Scor Tape on the edge of the back of the Design Paper and added little pieces of raffia to it. Once that was done, I used a ruler and an Xacto knife to trim it evenly.

For the hibiscus, I used Sizzlits Hawaiian Flower #2. I tried to replicate the ones on the Design Paper with a white center. I also curled the petals a little bit using a ball burnisher. For the leaves, I used Sizzlits Hawaiian Leaf.  For the shell on top of the insert, I used Sizzlits Shells #2.  I die cut two shells to make the pull tab. I glued them back to front,  so that they would match up.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you take a minute to visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and see all the gorgeous cards that the other Design Team Member have created!! I hope they will inspire you to join in on the fun!!

Have a wonderful day!!

Big Hugs,
