It's a Celebration at Magnolia-licious

Hello, Friends. It’s a new year and the Magnolia-licious DT are back to get you inspired with our 2014 challenges. Our first challenge of the year is…


Any celebratory theme will get you a chance to win a Surprise from the Magnolia-licious store.

It’s been almost a month since I posted a project and it’s good to be back into my familiar routine after the holidays. Although my crafty mojo has been missing a bit so it was hard to get started.

For the celebration theme I made a Birthday card. It features “Tilda with Large Balloon” from the new Lost and Found collection. My DPs are from Pion Design with a bit of vintage style.

I did a little distressing, sewing and crackle paint on my flowers for interest and texture. I colored Tilda with Copics and cut a circle frame for her to sit on a new Spellbinders die cut.

Here’s a close up of Tilda. She’s so cute.  

Don’t forget to leave a comment on any of the Magnolia-licious  and DT blogs/posts for a chance to win a weekly prize. The winner is announced every week during the “W”ednesday post.

So now that you’ve had a chance to see my card, go visit the Challenge blog to get more inspiration from the Design Team. You will see some new team members added recently and I’m so thrilled to be a part of this team with these wonderful ladies.
