Under The Sea For Magnoila-licious Challenge Blog Inspiration Challenge

Hello Everyone! It's that time again for another Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Inspiration Challenge. I am so happy to be hosting again this week!! I have chosen a sweet picture to inspire us all!! Oh, I just thought these little girls looked so cute all dressed up in their tutus!

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 has the new Turning Leaves Collection in stock   . . Regular Size and the Minis too! They are all so cute!

For this challenge, I decided to make a Star Pocket Card. I used the Star Catcher shape off the Playful Pockets Template from Hot Off The Press to make it. I traced and cut it out of White Card Stock and added Lilly Bimble Ocean Life Digital Design Papers from MyGrafico to it. I used ScorTape to form the pocket. I stamped Pearl Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, on Cryogen White Card Stock and traced a star shape around her letting her tail hang below the star. I colored Tilda and her little seahorse friend with Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I added a little sparkle using a Stardust Clear Gelly Roll Pen from Sakura. I drew some ink on the image and then took my finger to spread it a little bit. I also added some sparkle to the little bubbles.

The Lace, Pearl Strand, and the Tulle are from JoAnns.
The Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Recollections.

I made a little tag to go into the pocket. The shell was cut using Sizzlits Shell #2 Die.

Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog! I had fun making this card! I hope that you have time to use your gadgets and gizmos aplenty. Your whozits and whatzits galore! And, your thingamabobs! I know you have twenty!!  I look forward to seeing what you create for this challenge!

I hope you can take a minute as well to visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and see all the gorgeous cards that the other Design Team Member have created!!

Big Hugs,

Absolutely stunning card, Suzan! I love this star shaped card, like a star fish, and the beautiful shades of aquamarine! You have colored Tilda beautifully, and I like how you did the "out of the box" cut with Tilda's tail and bubble overhanging the mat star shaped piece! The pearls look like bubbles and everything is put together beautifully! Lovely "cool" ocean colors!

Big Hugs,
