Fall Is In The Air For Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Color Inspiration Challenge

 


Hello Everyone! It's that time again for another Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Color Inspiration Challenge. I would like to welcome the newest members to the design team, Sheri Willshire, Chris Christensen, Eulanda Silvey,  Cathy Lee, and  Barb Hardeman. I look forward to creating with all of these talented ladies.
 
The Color Inspiration Challenge is being hosted by our very sweet Design Team Leader,  Candy.  For this challenge, Candy 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 along with the COLORS in the inspiration photo. 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 and many other great things!  Diana has the new MagnoliaInk Turning Leaves 2012 - Issue #5 in stock! She also has a Halloween/Autumn Bundle of 14 Mini Stamps with a 28% Savings!!
 
 
 
For my card, I cut a 5 inch circle with Martha Stewart Circle Cutter and then scored it in half using the Scor Buddy. I added design paper from My Minds Eye Six By Six - A Happy Heart Collection.  Autumn Tilda With Broom, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and was colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I paper pieced Tilda's outfit using card stock and design papers.  I cut the frame behind Tilda and the one she is sitting on using the Layered Labels Template from Hot Off The Press. I matted them both with some black design paper. The crocheted lace is from Joann's. The sunflowers are from My Moments that I purchase from Paper Wishes. The small roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The other roses and twine are from my stash. The little brass embellishments on the frame are from K & Company.
 
 
Here's a close up look at Autumn Tilda With Broom
 
 
Thank you for stopping by my blog! I appreciate all the wonderful comments that you leave for me! I hope you take a minute to visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and see all the gorgeous cards that my teammates have created!! 
 
Well, I can't wait to see the cards that you create for this challenge!
 
Have a wonderful week!
 
Big Hugs,
Suzan

Hi Suzan! This card is just so adorable! I love the shape and the shape of the mat pieces you have used for this adorable Tilda with her broom. Great paper-piecing on Tilda's outfit, and the touch of crochet lace peeking from the back, along with the lovely sunflowers and roses! This is so darn cute, and as always, your coloring is superb!

Hugs,
Cami
