************

Today is our usual Challenge Blog. 
SWEET DIANA
has chosen all of our Challenges
until the end of the year.

 The first Challenge in February,
is a BIRTHDAY CARD.


Here is my card:


*The rules are that you MUST use a MAGNOLIA IMAGE
and you MUST make a BIRTHDAY CARD*
Your card won't be able to win without 
these two rules applied.


Here I have used:
TIDLA WITH  LOVE POTION #3070
from the new LOVE COLLECTION 2013.

I have used Bazzil card stock.

The Design Paper is from:
Crate Paper and is called: Snowing.

I have distressed the edges of all papers 
with SU So Saffron Ink, that includes the flowers.
I have used an Oval Spellbinder's Die
and the very first Tag put out by Doohickey
from Magnolia-licious.

The Tiny Butterflies are a MS punch as
are the leaves.
 I made the flowers.

Here are a few more pictures for you:





I have used Stickles around the rust brown, 
and lots of little pearls from my stash.
They may be
hiding from you around and in amongst
the flowers :o)


DON'T FORGET YOU CAN WIN

IF YOU ENTER OUR CHALLENGE!

As usual our Magnolia Challenge will last until 
Monday, February 25th at 6:00 PM
The next day, February 26th, will be our next Challenge


Diana has the Valentine Collection ready for you
with her many discounts.

AND you can already pre-order the New Easter Collection - 
at the lowest price around!!

************

Just one more quick thing.
I am using the timer on Blogger to 
get this card in at the correct time.
I am on the West Coast Pacific Time.
If it doesn't work I won't know until the morning.
I will check immediately and if it didn't work
I will post it manually right away.

I hope you like my card and I LOVE your
wonderful comments.
Thank you so much for visiting :o)

Love, Candy
