Magnolia Princess Tilda w/Curl's New Ride!

Good morning, my little chickadees,

How are you this gorgeous, sunny Spring Day? Are you ready for the new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog?

Oh, it was such creating some inspiration for you! The challenge for the next two weeks is to use vellum! I was just thrilled when I learned that we'd have a challenge using vellum! I hope you will join in the challenge!

Remember that your entry must have at least one Magnolia image on the front. If you want to be in the draw for the prize, you need to stick to the theme and use a Magnolia stamp! This challenge is open to everyone - it doesn't matter if you live in Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa, North or South America! Come and join in the challenge!

Also, if you leave a comment below, you will be entered to win a special surprise from Magnolia-licious!

Also, if you leave a comment below, your name will be in a draw to win a little gift from me as well! So, you have two chances to win - one from Diana at Magnolia-licious, and one from me! Just leave a comment below!

Are you ready to see my creation? I cannot wait to share it with you! Here it is:

Isn't that carriage adorable? I have had a princess carriage design in my head for years! It wasn't until the new Magnolia Once Upon a time Collection became available at Magnolia-licious that I actually got to turn my thoughts into a tangible project! I used pink vellum for the body of the carriage. Then, I went through my Nesties to see which dies would work for the carriage hardware. Those elements were cut from silver cardstock. I used silver thread to stitch the seams on the carriage body as well as around the perimeter of the card's panels. Next, I chose to add some girly girl pearls, flowers, and charms! If you look closely, Tilda has little pink pearls on her shoes. I also added three hot pink rhinestones to her crown. Here are the close ups.

Here are the images of the interior panels. I used the pink vellum once again to create the flowers and leaves.

For the bottom panel, I used the pink vellum for the flower as well as the stamped castle image.

The following items are available a the Magnolia-licious store:

223 - Princess Tilda with Curl

Heart Doohickey Die

Twisted Swirl Die - Currently Out of Stock

Wild Strawberry and Flowers Doohickey Die

#1 Vintage Tag Doohickey Die

Edwin's Knight Castle Stamp

Now, I would like to announce the winner of a special something from me. The name was chosen from those who left a much appreciated comment for me on the last Challenge Post. That winner is...

#3 - Gayle - that's YOU!

Gayle, please e-mail me using the address on the sidebar so I can get a special something out to you shortly.

Well, that's about it! Thank you so much for visiting! Please leave a comment if you want to take a chance on winning a special surprise from Diana as well as winning one from me! (Shhhh! - Don't tell, but Diana's will be LOTS better, LOL).

Love to you,


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
