Magnolia-licious Challenge No 1 - Tuesday 9/11/10

Today sees the start of another Challenge Blog - Magnolia-licious.  The challenge is the colours pink and yellow.  I have to admit that I didn't like the Magnolia characters for some years and they've only just recently become favourites of mine in the last six months - better late than never I say!!!  Here's wishing all the Magnolia-licious Design Team all the best in their new challenge.

With the colours of pink and yellow I had already coloured a little Tilda image I won recently in some blog candy from Lynn in Australia and had coloured her in pink with Copics/Promarkers and stickled her pom-pom and fur on her hat.  Had I had a vibe about this challenge as I am not sure why I coloured this Christmas Tilda in pink.  In the end I have decided to use pink and yellow for a non-traditional Christmas card.  I have used papers from my stash to cover the 8x8 card.  The patterned yellow paper is from a recent win of some Basic Grey papers - isn't it gorgeous??  I decided to make an embossed frame to be the focal point on my card and I have distressed it with Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed distress ink pad with my new ink dusters that I got at the NEC.  I have added a strip of card, cut with an X-cut hand-held cutter into a wavy shape and sat Tilda on here.  The card as then been embellished with two different flowers, mirri leaves cut with an X-cut/emboss punch and some gems.
