Hello Sweet Readers,
Did you have a three day weekend? Did you take advantage of this gorgeous Fall weather? I want to say, "Happy Thanksgiving" to my Canadian friends! I just played a bit this weekend and watched our semi-annual church General Conference on TV. It is so uplifting!
This month, our challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog is being hosted by Cathy. Just below is Cathy's color inspiration photo for you using the colors red, yellow, and brown. You have from October 9 through October 22 to create something warm and wonderful - reflective of Fall. Make sure you have used a Magnolia image, please!
Of course, there is a prize for one lucky player. Diana is the most amazing person when it comes to wonderful prizes. You will win...... are you ready? ............
This will surely be a treasure of a prize, so please consider jumping in and creating a Fall themed Magnolia card using the colors of red, yellow, and brown . I love the colors of Fall, so the photo was perfect for me! How about you?
Here is my card using that lovely Autumn tree as the inspiration. I chose to make an easel card (my second ever) which took me longer than a three paged square card! LOL
Here are closeups of the top and bottom panels:
My stamped images have been hand painted. The chrysanthemums are from WOC. I've used a pop dot to elevate the bristles on the broom head. The owl has also been elevated using pop dots as has the banner. I added some Flower Soft at the base of the trees so it would look like grass.
I used several Magnolia stamps. I have also included the link so you can see the stamps that Diana currently has in the Magnolia-licious store front. If you are interested in some of those that are not currently in the store, you may want to touch base with Diana to see if they might be ordered.
