Magnolialicious Challenge dt

We have a FAB new challenge for you on Magnolia-licious challenges chosen by our very own talented Pat Frank and here's your pic to get you started on your Pink & Green card!
Now as i am sure you're all aware dt's get there challenges and are able to make their cards in advance, yeah right!  So being who i am, i like to get ahead and make my cards well in advance, so well in advance that i have lost the card.  Just as well i have photo's of it on my laptop somewhere.  (message to myself, find out where things go when you save them)  this technology thing does my head in, gotta go for an intense course of techno savvy!
So for my card i have used Tilda with big ribbon item number 3030 available from Magnolia-licious where Diana will give you exceptional service.
I of course colored her with my copics, layered her onto another of my Marianne dies, the paper i used is all Melissa Francis, and Basil basics, the pearls,  flowers and ribbon are all from my never ending always growing stash, lol.
This is a fab challenge as it uses my all time favourite color combo so please do come and play.
Dont forget we also have the Easter- Spring Extravaganza going until 19th April and you gotta be in it to win it!  Good luck!

  14. Paola, it's a gorgeous gorgeous card. I love the soft colours. I have this adorable Tilda too which I haven't had a chance to play with. You've coloured her fabulously as always. Love the glitter you've added and your beautiful flowers.
    Kudos to you for being able to make your DT card way in advance. I can't seem to manage my time very well and am always playing catch-up...sigh.
