Magnolia Easter Card

Hi there! Just a quick post to share the card I made for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge blog for this week. The theme of the challenge is Easter...fairly appropriate I'd say! It was good to be able to get one of the Easter cards I want to send out done. Being in hospital for so long has really put my schedule out and I'm going to be pushing it to get everything done in time....oh well, that's life isn't it??? Enough of the blather...here's the card:

I've taken the colours from the Spring Fling DSP that I used across the centre of the card: Sage Shadow for the base, Pretty in Pink for the large layer, and So Saffron for the layer under the image. I'm not sure about the name of this Tilda...I think it's Tilda in the Cherry Dress? It was a RAK from Kristy (thanks Princess!). I coloured her with SU markers: Pretty in Pink, Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Sage Shadow, Barely Banana, and Blush Blossom for the skin.

The *happy* is a rubon (part of a phrase) from the Hidden Garden rubons and *Easter* is Pink Paislee Fashion Script stickers. The ribbon is Pretty in Pink grosgrain and the *eggs* are made with Spring Fling DSP punched with the small oval punch from SU. The final touch for this card, and one which I think really adds to the Easter feel, is that I stamped the Easter eggs from the Loads of Love Accessories stamp set all around the edge of the Pink layer in Pretty in Pink ink. It's subtle, but IRL it looks great.

So there you have it. I'm working on my first GDT Magnolia card for Sunday. I want it to be perfect, but maybe I'm just trying too hard...LOL!

OK, better go get ready for my doctors visit...after all the doctors I saw while I was in hospital I'd rather not, but I need more drugs...LMBO. I've got a few ideas for some projects and hope to get in some serious stamping time tonight so that I've got some cute things to show you over the next few days.

Hope you all have a wonderful day,

Kristie
