Tilda with Cozy Heart CAS Card for Magnolia-licious!

Happy Labor Day!

Are you resting today? Having three day weekends is wonderful, isn't it? I've been putzing in my craft room this weekend. I'm trying to organize, but it's a never ending job! Saturday afternoon was spent with a box of Meyer lemons! I zested each one and packed them into glass jars to freeze. Then, my sweet DH juiced each one for me. I filtered the juice and froze it in ice cube trays for use later. I'll appreciate having the zest and juice during the winter when lemons are so expensive!

The Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog is currently sponsoring a Clean and Simple Challenge. What a challenge that can be when you are used to flowers, ribbon, charms, buttons, and anything else you can use to embellish a card! Although I cannot participate in the challenge, I did make a card so I could challenge myself. Here it is:



For my image I chose to use Tilda with Cozy Heart. I think she is just adorable! The sentiment was stamped inside a Magnolia stamp called Elegant Heart. It's from the 2010 Raising the Ceiling Collection. I elevated it on pop dots. I used my embossing folders to add textured panels behind the center image. A Wonky Rectangle die was used to cut the shapes.

So, there you have it - no flowers, no ribbon, no charms, no scene, nada, zip, zilch! Nothin' but the basics! I can see why this is a challenge! LOL.

I would like to encourage you to hop on over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and join the challenge by creating a CLEAN AND SIMPLE card!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you will come back again. If you want to leave a comment for me, I would love to have it!

Love to you,

Chris
