I have a card to share with you today that I hope you will like. It is my very first easel card! I'm so proud of myself, LOL! I thought it would be hard, but it wasn't at all! I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. Now, I know why everyone is making them! DAH!
I made this card for the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The challenge was to use orange and green as the primary colors for your card. I love the color combination - it's bright and cheery. With that in mind, I wanted to make the card sentiment one that would also lift the spirits. So, using "Ruff" as a play on words, I went with the canine theme! I also thought I would enter it for a challenge found at Stamp Something. This challenge was to just stamp! So, I did (three times over, LOL).
I used three Magnolia images - Tilda from the new You're So Special Collection which is available as a preorder at Magnolia-licious as well as two Magnolia pooch images. Aren't they cute? I just love those furry faces! Can you tell I love Golden Retrievers? LOL
I colored the images using Distress Inks. The sparkly ribbon is from my ribbon supply. The flowers are Prima while the pearls are Kaiser. I had my desktop worked on and now it no longer reads my printer. So, since Necessity is the mother of invention, I had to use rub ons for the sentiments which are elevated on pop dots. I added a couple of dog bones to go with the themel The papers are from my scrap box. I KNEW there was a reason to keep them! LOL I wish I could find reasons to use all the other paper I cannot seem to part with!
I hope you like my card. I'm just tickled that I made an easel card!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I so appreciate it. Your visits are so special to me. Thank you!
