Hello Everyone! It's that time again for another Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Inspiration Challenge. The challenge is being hosted by the talented Jane. For this inspiration challenge, Jane has chosen this wonderful photo.
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.

The earthy colors in the photo inspired me to create a mountain scene with Hiking Edwin from the Turning Leaves Collection. I decided to make a pocket card using Lifestyle Crafts Treat Bag. For the background, I used Imaginisce Design Papers that I purchased at Michaels. I tore a piece of brown cardstock for the ground on which Edwin would be hiking on. I added some grass using Martha Stewart Grass Border Punch. I punched it out of two different green cardstocks. I cut the grass borders into smaller sections and then adhered them the ground. The pine trees were cut using Sizzix Originals Die #38-0179. I stamped Hiking Edwin and Sign With Birds, from Magnolia-licious, on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored them using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I cut the birds off the sign and added an owl button that I bought at Michaels. Then, I added a little bit of twine to the top of the pocket.
For the insert, I added a compass from K & Company.
The little pinecone was made using Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone Die.
