Midweek Magnolias 3-2-1 Recipe

Hello Friends! I have some awesome news to share with you today. As of last week, I joined the wonderful Design Team for Midweek Magnolias. I am so excited because I have so many of these lovely Maggie stamps and can’t wait to share them with you on my cards. I am so lucky to be a part of this team of talented ladies. Check out Midweek Magnolias for some awesome inspiration from the DT and leave some love on their blogs.

This week our challenge is a 3-2-1 Recipe of (3 Flowers, 2 buttons and 1 Ribbon).
So for my card I decided to use Flip Flop Tilda, Sunrise in Key West and "Have a Sunny Day" Magnolia stamps. If you know me, orange and blue is one of my favorite color combos. I would never have thought these colors would compliment each other but years ago I found myself scrapping a page of my children based on a color challenge and was astounded that they worked so well together.
I modified the the white lace trim with Lily Pad Glimmer Mist and the Hibiscus flower was pink so I gave it a coat of Scarlet Glimmer Mist to match my color theme.
My DT sister Anne shared the design-seeds.com Web site with our team and I was awed by the gorgeous color combos on the site. So my color theme is based on this image with some pretty blues added to the mix.
Here's a closeup of Tilda. I added Diamond Stickles to the sun rays for lots of sparkle.
Here’s the inside of my card, ready for a personal message or sentiment.
These are the Copics I used to color my images. I used the R1 series and YR2 series to blend just the right color for the sun rays.  

Supplies:
Cardstock – Bazzill; The Paper Co.
DPs - Stella Rose; Flip Flops by Cathy Lee
Flowers – Prima; Easycraft.com
Dies/Punches – Spellbinders; Lori Whitlock
Pearls – Recollections
Buttons - HOTP
Lace – WOC

I’m entering this project in the following Challenges:


TOMIC - Anything Goes (Happy Anniversary!)
Magnolia-licious Highlites - Water
Make It Monday – Anything Goes
7 Kids Challenge - School's Out for Summer

I hope my card inspires you to join us this week at Midweek Magnolias. Hope to see you there...

Hugz,
