I hope your Easter was one that was filled with family, friends, laughs, and love! I so loved when our boy was little and the Easter Bunny would leave a basket of goodies. He was always so thrilled!
Well, it's Mini Monday at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! If this is your first time checking out Mini Monday, it's our way to inspire you to pull out your minis and ink them up!

My card is really different from my usual style! First of all, there are NO FLOWERS! Can you believe that? I love flowers and usually have them inside and out on my cards! Not this time! I also kept the design very simple. That is also so unlike me! Yes, I used layers and machine stitching - I couldn't give up everything, LOL, could I? Here are the images:
For the front of the card, I chose the colors of pale yellow and teal. It looks like an emerald green, but it's a teal. The base of the card is the pale yellow Bazzill. I found some patterned paper in my stash that was a perfect match! I used Basic Grey buttons, bakers twine, Nestie dies for the scalloped circles and inner yellow circles, Memory Box dies for the swirly circles and the three random circles. The tag is an improvised Magnolia tag. I wanted to make the tag more functional, so I got a little creative. Then, there is my sweet little Tilda. I have listed the products used under the photo.
Here is a list of the products available at Magnolia-licious:
Tilda Brings Flower
Memory Box Loopy Rings Die
Magnolia Doohickey Die - Tea Label Tags
Memory Box Ringed Buckle
Here are images for the inside of the card. Following the photos is the list of Magnolia-licious products used.
Can you believe I didn't use a single flower, ribbon, glitter, or other embellies I dearly love! YIKES! There is a clear button inside the bottom circle near the center. The photo didn't pick up the button image. It looks a bit wonky! LOL Here is what I did use and you could use, too, if you like parts of what I did!
Memory Box Vilanti Crest
Memory Box Loopy Rings
Tilda with Thistle - 2008 Halloween and Autumn Collection
