Magnolia-licious Photo Inspiration

Hello, Friends. We have a new challenge up for you at Magnolia-licious and Chris has chosen a lovely Photo to inspire you.
If you follow along with us for the challenge you could have a chance to win a Mystery Surprise from Magnolia-licious.
The New “Love” Collection 2013 is in the Magnolia-licious store with beautifully colored images by the Design Teams. So stop over and take a look. They are so inspiring.
Diana added new Spring Release Memory Box dies to the store recently. Darling heart shapes for Valentines, fun flowers and frames; I can’t wait to get my hands on these. Don’t forget to check out the new “Tell a Friend” feature on Facebook and you can earn store credit when your friends shop. Plus they get a $5 instant store credit on their first order. You can find all the details HERE.
For my card this week I used three Magnolia stamps. I mounted Tilda with Lovikkamittens in a frame I got for Christmas from my friend Julie as part of my Secret Santa package. I colored Tilda with Copics and cut her out so she would hold my ticket sentiment and I added a metal turn mount to keep it closed. 

Once you slide the turn mount open you can see the entire message. The Photo inspired my pink and blue color theme and wintery setting.
My designer papers are from SEI and cardstock is Bazzill. The snowflake border was stamped with the Chocolate Label from the New “Love” Collection with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and I distressed the edges of several elements with it as well. I dabbed Liquid Pearls around my blue tree branches for a snowy day effect. Then I added some lace, flowers and ribbon as the final touches to my card.
I stamped Mini Holding Tilda and colored her with Copics to complete the inside. The sentiments were all printed with my PC.
Stamps: Magnolia
Cardstock: Bazzill
Design Paper: Berry Melody, SEI
Dies/Punches: Magnolia; Tim Holtz; Marta Stewart
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; Kort & Godt
Ribbon: The Ribbon Girl; Michaels

I’m entering this card in the following Challenges:
