Just Magnolia & Colour Create


Hello everyone 🙂

We are really enjoying the Bank Holiday so far and this afternoon has been the first time I could sit and create a little..

Yesterday I took the girls to see the new Hannah Montana movie, it was really quite fun and even find myself humming along to the songs together with Laurelle and Cherise!

This morning we had our head stuck into some holiday brochures and have been browsing the net for our break at Christmas/Newyear [only time we can go away really] and it looks like we might be heading further abroad than usual!! yay!

Anyway.. back to my card, and I have combined last friday’s sketch from JUST MAGNOLIA with today’s challenge over at COLOUR CREATE which is Chocolate, Red and Cream.. these are so not my usual colours, but I thoroughly enjoyed using them!!

 For my card I have used:

  • Stamps: Tilda with puppy from Magnolia, sentiment from SU!
  • Medium: Copic Sketch Markers
  • Paper: Stampin Up!
  • Tools: Various flower/leaf punches, swirl punch, SU! border punch, nestabilities.
  • Embellishments:Red Tulle, Pearl dots, ribbon.

Little Tilda has been popped on a semi circle made with oval nesties with 3d pads and the scalloped oval as well.. but I couln’t get this dimention on the photo!

Have a wonderful evening.. whatever you might be doing 🙂

Thanks for looking and any comments you might leave,

Hugs, Marlene xx

    Dit zouden ook echt geen kleuren voor mij zijn, maar je hebt er wel een heel mooi kaartje van gemaakt. Heerlijk met de Tule band.
    Wat leuk dat jullie nu al een vakantie uitkiezen voor Dec. Weliswaar minder leuk dat het dan alleen kan….maar wie op iets te geks wacht…..
