Hello, Friends. I’m so glad you got a chance to stop by and see what I created for the Magnolia-licious Challenge. It’s time for our Photo Inspiration for September and our lovely team leader Candy chose this awesome photo. We want to see you use buttons on your card or project.
The design team has some spectacular inspiration for you HERE and we would love for you to join us.
If you enter a project in the challenge you could have a chance to win a Special Surprise from Magnolia-licious. Check out the store as Diana has a vast selection of Magnolia stamps, lots of fun cutting dies, designer papers, and other goodies. She even carries the Magnolia Ink Magazine which is one of my favorite places I go for inspiration.
My card features the adorable “Tilda with a Gift for You” from the Turning Leaves Collection. She's not available in the regular size in the store at this time but Diana reorders often so check back soon for this cutie.
Tilda is colored with Copics and I stamped some flourishes around her frame. Then I randomly added Liquid Pearls in White Opal.
My DPs are from Prima’s En Francais collection. I love the blue and brown color combos in this collection which happens to be one of my favs. The inspiration photo encouraged me to create a fabulous Magnolia heart die cut covered in buttons. I added some seam binding to the heart for even more texture and used a strip of it behind my lace but it doesn't show up very well in the photo.
For the inside of my card I stamped part of Tilda on the message panel. This would make a great Birthday card.
