New 'Magnolia-Licious Challenge Blog'

It's a bright new morning to introduce Magnolia-Licious new Challenge Blog :o)
I can't tell you how honoured I am to have been chosen by Diana Crick, to not only be a part of the new Design Team, but to be the Leader of the group as well!!!
We have the most awesome group of Design Team Members ever and you are going to LOVE each and every one of their projects.
Every two weeks we will have a new challenge for you! A 'COLOUR CHALLENGE' on the second Tuesday of the month and an 'INSPIRATION CHALLENGE' on the fourth Tuesday.
The first Colour Challenge is mine and I have chosen PINK and YELLOW.
My project today is a simple one. I wanted you to see that you don't need a lot of 'fancy' or 'special things' to make a Challenge worthy card :o)

I have used 'TILDA IN WINDY WEATHER' #299 Cozy Autumn Collection, from Diana's online store. It looks like she is out of stock at the moment, but I am sure she will be back 'in' soon :o)
Here is a closer picture: I am sorry my camera wasn't working properly for some reason the day I took my pictures and Tilda looks a little blurred in both pictures -

Here is the inside of my card:

Please, won't you join us for this Challenge? We would love it if you would. All of the instructions are on the Challenge Blog
There's a fantastic prize if you win :o)
We hope to see you every other week for another fun and exciting Challenge. The next one up is my 'Inspiration Challenge'
Love, Candy
