Magnolia-licious inspiration challenge

our new challenge for Magnolia-licious starts today, and what a challenge:




i really gotta add that i ummed and ahhed for quite a while before i decided what to do:
finally deciding on using #3035 Tilda in summer rain available from Magnolia-licious where Diana will give you discount and amazing service.
My dp is MME, i used my Magnolia dohh-hickey flourish which i must say is sadly not used enough, the little garlands are ones i made as i didnt have the right color to match my card.

all the flowers are from my stash, the dark turqoise ones i had to airbrush to get the color to match my project and that big Ass rhinestone i got recently in all colors, they just kinda spoke to the sparkly girl in me, lol.  The ribbon is one i bought ages ago thinking it would be great for Christmas projects, but worked for this too.

And a quick peek at the inside of my card

  6. Stunning card, my BFF! Always your images are so beautifully colored and the layout of this card is gorgeous with the trims and flowers. Your Doohickey flourish is lovely with the flowers, it gives such depth. I particularly love the teal pearls that you've added to your floral spray! A beautiful piece of art!
