Treat Or Treat 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 Cathy Lee. For this inspiration challenge, Cathy Lee has chosen this Spooktacular Halloween Photo.

I hope that you will join in on this fun challenge! All you need to do is use a Magnolia Image and some elements from the inspiration photo. 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  in stock and is offering  a 17% discount off the regular price! They are all so cute! And, Diana is also offering a Christmas Bundle of 16 Mini Stamps at 17% off, perfect for all those Christmas tags for the gifts and goodies that you will be giving out this holiday season.
For my card, I used The Bewitched Matstack from DCWV.  I love the scroll work and witch that is on the paper. Tilda With Pumpkin, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and was colored partly using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I paper pieced Tilda's outfit using Digital Design Papers from Echo Park - Trick & Treats Paper Pack #1.  I used Cats and Bats Clear Stamp Set from Inkadinkado to stamp the flourishes that frame Tilda. The Glitter Pumpkin Sticker Border, Spider and the Black Rhinestones are from Recollections. The Black Berries, Leaves, Black Glitter Ribbon and Black Glitter Paper are from Joann Craft and Fabric. The "trick or treat" was stamped using a Studio G Clear Stamp. The Flowers are from my stash.
I also made another card using the Mini Tilda With Pumpkin, from Magnolia-licious. The card measures 2 3/4" x     3 3/4",  just the perfect size to send along with some Halloween treats. For this card, I used Digital Design Paper from Echo Park - Trick & Treats Paper Pack #1 and Happy Halloween Journal & Element Tags. The Bat is from Recollections.
My one year blogging anniversary is coming up soon. I can't believe it has almost been a year already. I'll be back next Tuesday to celebrate it with some blog candy for one of my followers.
Thank you for stopping by my blog! I appreciate all the wonderful comments that you leave for me! I hope you take a moment to visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and see all the gorgeous cards that my teammates have created!!

I can't wait to see the cards that you create for this challenge!
Have a wonderful week!
Big Hugs,

Hi Suzan,
You're cards are as sweet as can be!
Love the pretty orange colours you have used.
Both "girls" are beautifully coloured.
The paper on your first card is awesome - I thought you had some great dies and wondered where they were from LOL LOL. Like the spider and great flower creation.
