Magnolia-licious dt

Time for our new challenge on Magnolia-licious and this week we have a photo to inspire you aswell as we would like to see, Monochrome color scheme or of course black and white.
For my contribution to the challenge i used Explore Tilda #211 available from Diana's Magnolia-licious store, on the inside of my card i used the snail that came with one of the collections, sorry i dont recall which one and cant seem to find it in the inventory.
My sentiment was computer generated.  All my images are coloring with copics, grays.  The black rhinestone flourish was a gift from my BFF, so nice not to have to sit and glue each rhinestone down individually for a change.
Well folks its national womens day here in good ol" SA, i sure feel like a women, i been washing, ironing, baking and running around like a mad woman.  We have been fasting today, so it hasnt been easy, but almost time to break fast.

I do hope you will join our challenge this week i look forward to seeing all the fab intries.

  5. The inside with the snails & that sentiment could be a card in itself - well I do have rather a soft spot for images of snails. Superb colouring of that snails's shell - a really difficult piece of colouring to get right & this is a beauty. Thanks for encouraging me to keep persevering with colouring techniques.

  10. You never fail to inspire! I just love the inside of this one...it would make a great card all on it's own. Hope it turned into a great day. Had to laugh at your description of National Woman's Day. Sounds like every other day of the year!
