Tilda With Kite at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge


A very happy Friday to everyone!!! I hope you are ending a marvelous week and are as ready as I am for a weekend.

This week at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge we are hosted by the very talented Jane who has provided us a really fun sketch to use for the challenge. The fabulous prize this week is sponsored by 7 Kids College Fund...So come on over and play along with us!!!! We would love to see your creations!!

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting; the DP is from the First Edition Hideaway Paper Pad (which is soooo sparkly and pretty); and all panels are machine stitched. The cute image I used is Tilda With Kite from Magnolia-licious and she was colored with Copics and a touch of Star Dust Stickles on the lace. Tilda and the kite were cut out and propped up for dimension. I attempted a Bev background using her wonderful template. This was my first attempt at this so please be tender...lol I used some Divine Twine from WOC for the kite string and tail, adding a few tiny silk ribbons to the tail. The background doily is by MFT. For the horizontal I used a yellow raffia ribbon. The small floral treatment resting on MS punched branches is all from Wild Orchid Crafts: 35mm Trellis Rose and Hip Rosebuds. I finished the front with WOC Pearls.


The inside is more of the same materials from the front with the addition of a couple of yellow gingham flat bows and some 10mm Open Roses.

I hope you like my little creation and we really would love for you to join us at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge this week! Gosh, it will be so much fun seeing your wonderful creations using Jane's great sketch!!! Please drop by to check out all of the lovely creations made by the DT this week!!
