My Precious Daughter Tilda w/ Big Rose Monochromatic Card

Hello Dearest Readers,

Happy Fall to each and every one of you! It is still hot here, but just knowing that cooler temps are coming closer and closer, I can hardly wait! My hummingbirds are gone. They're traveling over a thousand miles on their little, tiny wings. They may be tiny little birds, but they are courageous, determined, and strong. I'm sad that they are gone.

Today begins a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. Our new challenge is to create a card that is


Before I show you my card, I want to apologize if my photos are blurry. I have severe eye problems and my vision has been extremely blurry. I couldn't tell if my photos are clear or not. I'm sorry if they are not clear.

For my card, I chose to challenge myself and use purple as my color. Purple is my least favorite color. I haven't a clue why, but I don't use it often. For my card, I chose to use Tilda with Big, Big Rose. Diana is currently out of stock on this item. Do contact her to see when she'll be getting more in. I also used the most beautiful Pion papers available at Stay True to God. Also purchased at STTG were my matching beautiful flowers, charm, and seam binding.

Here are my photos:

I am so in love with Pion Papers! The colors are gorgeous and the artwork is exquisite! Now you know why I had to go purple with my card! LOL

Now for some Magnolia-licious news!!!! The Doohickey Die Set, Vol. 2 is now is stock and ready to go! You will want to get this adorable set! So, if you are looking for some cute dies for Christmas, check out Magnolia-licious!

Also, Diana will be carrying MOST of the Saturated Canary Stamps! If you love Saturated Canary, then get your orders in to Diana as soon as you can!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you will leave a comment for me as well as my other teamies! One lucky gal who posts a comment on the DT blogs will win a special gift from Diana. Trust me, Diana gives GREAT prizes! LOL

Simply gorgeous! I never liked purple either but my grandmother always said you will love it once your a senior citizen and she was correct. Now I love it.

Your photos are excellent Chris! Not a blurry one in the lot! For most of my life I have hated purple (the color of the little pills my mother would force down our throats to take care of worms) Just recently I have found a new fondness for the color purple - it must have something to do with aging!! Your card is a sensation! Such creative genius here in every aspect of the card! The details are SO delightful! I hope you can deal with the eye issues that have plagued you for so long - I thought you had taken care of it some time back...any hoo, sending big hugs your way...Barb
