Magnolia Down Under Challenges

Well, I've managed to get this one in on time. In this weeks challenge from Kellie's Magnolia Challenge, is to include a Tilda, yellow ribbon and a flower. And I think I've managed that quite nicely!

The base card is Pretty in Pink, onto which I've layered some Designer Paper from Spring Fling. And this was the guide to my colour selection for this card! Pretty in Pink, Sage Shadow and Whisper White!
Onto the DP I've layered a smaller piece of Sage Shadow. The stamped image is on Whisper White which I've coloured in using my aqua painter and ink pads. Tilda is holding a bunch of flowers, so I've just added my own small flowers from the Pretties Kit instead. I used my marker pens to colour in the white flowers, then added a half pearl to the centre.
To complete the card, I've used a small piece of yellow grosgrain ribbon, photo corner punch and a sentiment from 'Boho Backgrounds'.

Products used:
Stamp set: Magnolia Stamps, Boho Backgrounds (SU)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Sage Shadow, Spring Fling DP
Ink: Black Stazon, Sage Shadow
Accessories: Photo corner punch, brad, Ribbon, Pretties Kit, Dimensionals.


These challenges have been lots of fun and I can't wait to see what the next one is.

There is only one more week before the release of the new Stampin'Up Catalogue for 2009/2010. So exciting. I still don't have my own copy, but it's sure to be arriving in my letter box any day now. Demonstrators were allowed to pre-order some new items from a sneak peak catalogue this year, so I do have some new goodies to play with; stamps and new In-colours. I hope to show you some new creations very soon.
In the meantime, you only have a week left to order from the current catalogue. Retired items have been selling fast, especially with some items at 25% off. So don't forget to check it out here.
