Magnolia-licious Pretty in Pink



Magnolia-licious Highlites blog is having a wonderful blog hop of Magnolia cards done in *PINK*. Pink! Love pink! I just love all the cards the design team have made for the blog hop, you can see it by starting at Magnolia-licious Highlites blog and check them out for yourself. At the end there is a contest if you upload a pink Magnolia card of your own you can enter to win a bunch of goodies :) So this is my entry! Then this card is going to my "mingle" partner for January.

I just got the new Stampin' Up Valentine's paper and it is so pretty! Pink and red, lot's of variety so I had lots of pink to choose from. There is a lot of sparkly glitter on it too. The card stock base is regal rose and I used some very vanilla also. As you can tell this is another easel card - they are so cool to make because when you are done they stand up by themselves. This cute little Tilda is #388 Dinner Tilda and you can purchase her at Magnolia-licious, here is the link to her. She is part of the "A Little Yummy for Your Tummy" Collection. She is one of my favorites :) I paper pieced her little outfit, just seemed like it would look nice this way. The flower in the upper right is layers of the designer paper and card stock punched, soaked and crinkled, then after dried out and adhered together. Love how it looks like Primas that way! I used a bunch of my Spellbinder dies - "Nesties", I really like how they work so well together. OH! Can you see the pearls? Around her neck and wrist - I used the tiniest sticky pearls I had, I know I was extravagant with them (for me) wasn't I?! I used the new border punch from SU too - I love it's open lacy look.

I am getting ready for CHA, leaving Wednesday but I will post from there to let you know what goodies I find :) I have lot's to do between now and then that's for sure!


Check out the pearls!


You can see how it is an easel from the side
