Magnolia Down Under Challenge #60

Good Morning Magnolia Fans!!  Well this is a bit different for me, playing along with the other side of the Design Team, but they had such a fabby and Crazy Challenge that I just had to join in!!

So this week at Magnolia Down Under its a Colour Challenge:


WOW, what a combination huh???  Its actually rather easy when you think about it, because you would most likely use those colours in your colouring of Tilda or Edwin anyway and the rest is up to you on how much of each colour you actually use!!

So My Orange in in Tilda's Shirt and my Orange Rose, Pink is on Tilda's Wings and my Paper, Green is for my Leaves!!, Blue is on Tilda's Jeans and on my message spot tag, Brown is in Tilda's Hair, her bag and I used Brown Card stock as a base for my pretty pink paper!!

Ok so its the first time I've made a circle easel card, and gosh they are fun! But I did manage to some how muck it up a bit and it looks a little off center??  I must have folded my base card a bit crooked??  I dunno but I'm still really really happy with it!! 

I've also decided to squeeze my card into lots of challenges, because well that's fun  too!!  So I've used the Sketch over at Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly Challenge, Totally Tilda wants Stitching - which is around the outside of my pink paper and on my base image piece!!, Bizzy Bec Creatalious Challenges is after Vintage - I think I covered that!! and also Bizzy Bec's August Challenge is Anything Goes!! and The Pink Elephant have a receipe challenge of Ribbon and Sparkles...... So I fit for that one too!! I was going to go for Lollypop Ladies Brand new challenge - Banana Split with Sprinkles but I was a little bit too late for that one.... oh well!!

and here is my card:

Here is a close up of my Shopping Tilda!!  Isn't she cute... so cute??  Kylie K (Blonde) sent her to me and oh my I love her to bits!!  I've used a bit of Gold Glimmer Mist on my flowers and on my base for Tilda - so pretty in real life.  I've also used a tonne of Kindy Glitz on Tilda's wings!!! 

Ok so this one is of the message spot, its the Recipe Card from a little yummy for your tummy collection!!  and I coloured my Tag Blue, and smothered it with Crystal Effects to make it stand out a bit more!!
