Cherish For Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Inspiration Challenge

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

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.

When I first saw the beautiful inspiration photo, I knew that I had to use feathers on my card. I wanted use down feathers, so I bought a white feather boa at a local craft store. I cut the light wispy feathers out of it! I have feathers  all over my craft room now. LOL!  It was a lot of fun to use a different embellishment on my card though.

For my card, I used Graphic 45 - Always On My Mind and Spellbound Design Papers. Even though they are from two different Collections, I think they look good together.
Tilda in the Garden, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. For the frame behind Tilda, I used Hot Off The Press Layered Labels Template. After tracing and cutting out the Fancy Label A and B, I matted them with Green Card Stock. The Cherish Banner was stamped using Fiskars Clear Wedding Stamp Set. I  stamped it using a combination of green and rust chalk inks to match the pattern in the Design Paper. The pearl flourishes are from Recollections. The ribbon is from JoAnns. The flowers are from my stash.

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 and project that the other Design Team Member have created!! I hope they will inspire you to join in on the fun!!

I can't wait to see what you create!

Have a wonderful week!

Big Hugs,
