Bunny Tilda at Magnolia-licious Challenge and WINNER and SWEET STUFF!!!!
A magnificent Tuesday to each of you! Gosh, I hope you are having a very sweet week and are enjoying each moment! I am almost afraid to say this BUT I am thinking SPRING is really here.....There are so many flowers popping out all over and my rose bushes are so green and growing like crazy...woooohooooo!!!!
Today is the first day of the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and I have been invited by the lovely Diana to participate. I am very excited and hope that you are as excited as well. This fortnight we have the picture below as our inspiration. I would love for you to come on over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and see the magnificent DT Members fabulous examples of their inspiration and I sure hope you will join in with us this time!!!!
For those of you who have asked me about inspiration challenges and have been hesitant to participate, I will tell you what I do. I merely have a look at the picture and the first thing that comes to mind when I see the picture is the direction that I take in making my card. When I saw this picture I thought Easter, pastel colors, and polka dots....but you obviously will be reminded of something else...which is perfectly OKAY!!! Inspiration is inspiration...and you certainly don't have to make a cake card!!! hahahha With inspiration challenges, any way that the picture inspires you is absolutely acceptable!!! Gosh, how fun is that!!!!!
For my card I used the absolutely darling little Bunny Tilda which is available over at Magnolia-licious and what image is cuter for an Easter card?!?! This cutie was stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics and cut out so that she sits within the triple Nesties. I used Bazzill for the base and for all double matting, the DP is PTI Dots and Best Creations - A Walk in the Garden...oh I love this paper!!!! The verticals are a lace with yellow ribbon which is a gift from my sweet friend, the very talented Suzan. If you haven't visited her blog you are missing out!!! The double flat bow dangles a cute, cute bunny charm and the floral treatment is a Trellis Rose and Hip Rosebuds from Wild Orchid Crafts and some yellow flowers from my stash. To finish the front I used some Self-Adhesive Pearls.
The inside is so simple because of the gorgeous paper. Just a horizontal of lace and ribbon and a few pearls.
I hope you like my little creation and will be INSPIRED to join us over at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog where you can be assured that there is a very nice prize for some lucky participant. If you have any questions about participating, please jot me a quick email and I will help you! I want to see you there!!!! Yipppppeeeeeee!!!
