Well, the weather has just done a huge turn around for us. How about you? Did you get snow, wind, rain? We had a bit of everything! Stay warm!
Before I go to my card, I want to announce the winner of the surprise from me! This time, #10 was generated. The winner will receive a new Magnolia stamp from me! The winner is:
Cathy, please e-mail your address to me so I can get your stamp out to you! Congratulations!
Today is the start of our new challenge at Magnolia-licious. This is an exciting time for all as we're beginning with a blended Design Team, revamped Challenge Blog, new challenges, and some new products! Can you tell we're all excited? Just look at the Design Team's gorgeous creations made to inspire you!
Our challenge theme for the first challenge this month is for you to create a birthday card. I made mine for a dear friend who loves the color purple. Each year, I create a purple card just for her. We would love for you to join in the challenge. Just be sure to use a Magnolia stamp and/or Doohickey die(s). If there aren't any Magnolia products included, your sweet creation won't be included in the draw for a wonderful surprise from Diana, the owner of Magnolia-licious You have until February 25 to get your entry in! This is a really fun challenge!
I'd love to share my birthday card with you!
For the front of my card, I chose to use Tilda with Big Tulips which is available here. Isn't she just adorable? I have mounted her on a spring so that she has movement from left to right when flicked. I love texture, so I embossed the mat behind Tilda. I used lots of layering and pretty flowers and lace. I just love using the Magnolia Doohickey Die - Tilda's Doily Die. It just adds a bit of crispness to the layout. You can find this great die here. There is also a Magnolia tag tucked behind the mat. The eyelet border is an older Magnolia Die. The swirly bow is a newer die.
Here is a look at the inside:
I wanted the interior to be dramatic, so I used the darker cardstock with my dies. I used the space on the right to include a special message for my friend. I hope you like what I've created to inspire you.
