Thankful For You For Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Color Inspiration Challenge


Hello Everyone!  Happy October! My hubby and I along with our dog,Woody, took a little trip up the coast of California to a little town called Cambria and stayed at the Cambria Shores Inn, which overlooks Moonstone Beach. It was so nice to get away for a few days! The weather was wonderful.   .  . cool and crisp, unlike at home where is has been in the high 90's, which seems like forever. On the way, we stopped at Avila Valley Barn. They had the best assortment of pumpkins and gourds that I have ever seen along with a cute little gift shop and the yummiest baked goods! We picked up an apple crumble that was so delicious! I need to learn how to make one, because my hubby keeps talking about it!
Today at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog, we are being hosted by the talented Cathy Lee.
She has chosen this fabulous fall picture to inspire us all!
The challenge is to use Red, Yellow and Brown!
I hope that you will join in on this fun challenge! All you need to do is use a Magnolia Image and Red, Yellow, and Brown on your card or project. Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the winner of a Special Surprise Gift from Magnolia-licious, the best place to shop for Magnolias and many other wonderful things. Diana has the new  A Christmas Story Collection on pre-order with a 17% discount! They are all so cute! And, Diana is also offering a Christmas Bundle of 16 Mini Stamps at 17% off, perfect for all the Christmas tags and goodies!
For my card, I used Digi Design Papers from MyGrafico -  Kelly Medina Woodland Collection. Tilda With Corn, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and was colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Recollections. The berries are from JoAnn Fabric and Craft. The flourishes within the flowers were cut using Magnolia DooHickey Cutting Die Heart Swirl, which I also purchase from Magnolia-licious.  The corner flourish was cut using a Cuttlebug Die. The red satin ribbon and crocheted lace are from JoAnn Fabric and Craft. I added some red flower trim from my stash to it. The "Thankful With Heart" was stamped using a Studio G Clear Stamp.
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!!
I am entering my card in the following Challenges:
I'm so excited my card made Top 3 at the Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge and also was a Favorite at Splitcoaststampers.
Have a wonderful week!
Big Hugs,
