I am so very excited to have been asked to join the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Design Team! This is my first submission, and I hope you like what I have done!
Before I share my newest card, I'd like to congratulate the winner of my last blog entry candy draw. My sweet husband picked a number at random, and he picked.....
Candy, please e-mail your mailing address to me so I can send you a little somethin' somethin'.
I'll be doing this again using the comments from this blog post. Just leave a comment for me and you'll be entered into a random number draw to be announced when I post my next card! How's that?
Here is the photo that I used to draw my color inspiration for my card:
When I looked at the colors in the photo, I saw burgundy, pink, green, cream, and brown. From that, I chose to emphasize the burgundy, cream, pink, green because we're heading into the Fall season. Here is my creation:
I chose to use Goosebump Tilda which I masked so I could use the Open Gate image from the 2010 Hoppy Easter/Spring Collection. I have colored my images using Distress Inks.
In addition to the stamps, I also used some delightful Magnolia dies (as well as other dies) to add those extra special touches to the card. The first die is called Tilda's Doily Doohickey Cutting Die. Also used, but tucked behind the mat, is the So Wrapped Lovely Heart Folded Tag Doohickey Cutting Die. Inside the card, I used Leaf and Swirl Doohickey Die #4
Here are the images for the interior of my card:
I saw something romantic in the photo of the chair and corner grouping. I wanted to add a little romantic look to my card as well.
