Happy Wednesday Everyone!!! Today I've got my Magnolia-licious DT Challenge card to show you. The current challenge over at Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog is 'Nothin' But Paper!'. That's right! Diana challenged us girls to make something using absolutely nothin' but paper! All I can say is "Thank goodness for my Doo Hickey dies!".
Before I get to my card, I have a little something sweet for you!
These are some of my absolute favorite crafting tools:
No More Shims
Glitter 'Clean Up Cloth'
I use my Scor-Buddy with almost every single paper project that I make. I honestly don't know how I got along without it! I must admit, my first scoring tool was an inferior product. Once I had my Scor-Buddy, the difference in the quality of the materials and the quality of the scores was very obvious. I donated the 'old' one and never looked back.
The No More Shims mat is TOTALLY COOL! I got to see first hand at CHA just how deep the embossing is when using this mat. It's my new MUST HAVE crafting tool.
Finally, the Glitter 'Clean Up Cloth' is a must have for anyone that uses glitter. As you know, it gets on EVERYTHING! This tacky cloth allows you to easily clean up your work surface so it's completely glitter free! LOVE IT!

Get Well Soon
Well, you've all seen this little 'Nurse Tilda' as a mini in the Magnolia kit, but have you seen her in the full size yet? Neither had I until Diana gifted her to me at CHA. You're tooooooo sweet Diana! Thank you!!! Isn't this image just the cutest? I couldn't wait to ink her up and you have no idea how difficult it was to hold this post until now! Anyway, she'll be available at Magnolia-licious really soon!
I wanted to see how many Magnola products I could use on this card and, I must say, I got quite a few! The dp's are from the Mini Sweet Rainbow Paper Pack. I used almost the entire pack on this card! The large flowers and leaves were cut using the following Doo Hickey dies: Bon Voyage Foliage, Doily Flowers, and Heart Swirl. The red roses were cut using the Marianne Design Creatables - Flower Buds and Leaves Die. The bottom edge of the card and background to the image were cut using a MS edge punch. I added bits of a white doily for a little more interest behine the image. You almost can't see it, but there's a paper ribbon behind the image that I cut with another MS punch. I cut the image with a SB oval grand nestie. All cs is by SU.
I colored the Tilda with Copic markers. The details are below. I chose to make her uniform pink because white simply wouldn't stand out from the background enough.
Copics: E000, 00, 02, 11, 13, 41, 42, 43, 44, 50, R20, 30, 35, 37, RV0000, 00, 02, W00, 1, 3, 5, N0, 1
Well, that's it for today! Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your visit!!!
