Magnolia Tilda Likes Rainy Weather

Hello Sweet Readers,

It's time for a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Challenge Blog! The challenge for this two week period is to create a card with a WEATHER THEME. I chose to use two Magnolia Tilda stamps under an umbrella and also have a weather related sentiment. I did, however, want my sentiment to be supportive and positive.

Before I share my card with you, I wanted you to know, in case you didn't know already, that Magnolia-licious has a "Deal of the Day!" How about that? Each day, Diana posts a new item on the store's Home Page. This item has been significantly reduced in price making it a real deal and steal! Be sure to check it out each and every day!

Now for my weather themed card. I chose two Tildas and masked them together. I thought both of these little darlings were such a perfect pairing. Both images were painted and look so much better IRL, LOL. Here is the front of my card:

I drew little raindrops and glittered them so they would sparkle. The umbrella has a pale pink underside with a glittered polka dot pattern on the top. I used lots of layering, flowers, and a sweet umbrella charm. On the peak of the umbrella, I added a pink enameled metal charm.

Here are the images for the inside:

I've had this umbrella die for quite some time just saving it for this card. It's hard to see, but it has embossed dots on the top. Don't you love the umbrella paper? I thought it was so pretty when I got it. Again, bought with this challenge in mind. I love the Doohickey die border. It just adds nice texture.

Here is the final photo. This is of the bottom of the card's interior.

I thought that this particular sentiment would be so appropriate for those times when a friend needs support. I love cards that give strength and love to others. I chose to use part of a new Doohickey die - Lace Coaster. The only thing that bugged me about it was that it is not a true circle. It is wider at some areas than others. There is a hidden tag behind the yellow panel.

I have used the following products available at Magnolia-licious. Just click the link to be taken right to the item!

3016 - Tilda with Heart Balloons

294 - Tilda with Balloon

DH#1 - Vintage Tag Doohickey Die

DH#81 - Vintage Box Lacing Chocolate Doohickey Die

DH#84 - Lace Coaster Doohickey Die

DH#10 - Berry Lace Doohickey Die

I hope you like my creation. If you leave a comment for me, your name will be entered into a draw for a special gift from Diana.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you will add a card to the Weather Challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!
