Magnolia-licious Colour Challenge

Hello Friends,

It is crazy at my house.
Been that way for the last couple of weeks.
This is the first time I have been late
with my Challenge!!
Please forgive me.

It is Maria's turn to pick the COLOUR CHALLENGE
this month.

Here is her picture:

The colours she wants to see are:

I  had a bad time finding paper for this challenge
then Copics that would match what I found!
So I am not too pleased with the outcome of my card.

I bought some Design Paper from NITWITS.
Used SU card stock : Old Olive and Pink Pirouette.
The Magnolia Image I chose is
TILDA WIZARD #3081 from the
Prince and Princess Collection.

Here she is:

Tilda was a lot of fun to colour!

I have used soft green Seam Binding from
the Ribbon Girl.
The stars are from my stash as is the stickles 
and Crystal Lacquer.

Here is a closer picture of Tilda. I hope you can
see the shine on her glasses and shoes in this one.

I also took a close-up of the ribbon which has 4 bows.

The inside of this card is exactly the same on both sides!
I have not yet stamped a saying in the left side,
and won't until I have an occasion to use it.
The right side has plenty of room for writing :o)

you have a chance to win a

DIANA is so generous she gives out one for each challenge!

You will want to see the other DESIGNER'S work too,
they have all done a spectacular job!!

** I will be back later this evening with BLOG CANDY**

Love, Candy
