Magnolia-licious DT Challenge

Happy New Year Everyone!  It's time for another Magnolia-licious DT challenge!!!  This time it was Cheryl's turn to choose the challenge and she decided on a recipe:

4 flowers
3 dp's
2 Magnolia images
1 ribbon

Oh what fun!  I love the challenge of working within specific parameters.  It makes it just a little more interesting.  The Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog has the details of how you can join in on the fun.  And, there will be a prize awarded to one lucky person.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!!! 

Here's my card...


This little cutie pie is #383 Mini Oops Tilda.  Now, I don't use the word 'darling' very often, but...isn't she just???  I paired her with #628 Mini Kitchen.  When I saw that we were doing a project with a 'recipe', I just knew that I had to use something from the 'Yummy For Your Tummy' collection.  Both stamps are currently in stock over at Magnolia-licious so head on over to get yours!

With a kitchen theme, I had no choice but to use dp's from BG's 'Nook and Pantry' collection.  Cs is by both Bazzill and SU.  The layout that I used is actually from last week's Friday Sketcher's challenge.  I knew I wouldn't post in time for the challenge, but I liked the sketch so I decided to use it.  The image and it's background were cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities.  I used a MS border punch for some added interest under one of the dp layers.  All flowers were sent to me by my friend and DT sister, Mindy.  Thank you Mindy!!!  I LOVE THE POPPIES!!!  They're one of my most favorite flowers ever!!!  The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps.  I grabbed the ribbon and brads from my stash.  I hope it's ok that I added the brads.  I know it's not part of the recipe but the corners were screaming for them!  For some bling bling, I added stardust and cinnamon Stickles all over the place.

The images were colored with a combo of Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger DI's.  Here are the details:

Copics: E000, 00, 02, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, R20, RV21, W00, 1, 3, 5

DI's: walnut stain, antique linen, vintage photo, scattered straw, barn door, peeled paint, black soot

Jean said...

I adore your card Angie.. Your ideas just keep flowing, which is such a great thing to have.. no one could go to the store every time they want to make a card, so you must just go into your stash, find paper, get an idea and go with it.. well your ideas are always so sweet and interesting and so well put together like they were supposed to be together all along.. Great job and I love your coloring and all your pp together. Hugs, Jean

Stunning, Angie, as always! Love the Mini Maggies used as the main image...that is brilliant and it gives a little more room for the beautiful paper to show through and to add some more embellies. I love that idea! love the stunning flowers you've used and the poppies are my fave too! Love the sentiment as well...love it all!
Thanks so much for joining us at MDUC!
