Magnolia Sunshine of Life

*****update*****




Good Morning my lovelies! I hope you are all doing well. No complaints here, accept for this wicked heat wave that we are all having.
Today I thought I'd show you my entire easel card inside and out as well as the gift box.
I colored Tilda in with my Distress inks. For her frame I used the Spellbinder heart circle frame. And don't ya know it they came out with a butterfly circle frame. It's now on my wish list. LOL
The paper is by Memory Box and it's called Butterfly Ballet. The flowers are by Prima and Wild Orchids. The sparkly butterflies were made with a Martha Stewart punch. I distressed the heart chipboard by painting it with white acrylic paint and laid a coat of Crackle and when it dried I sponged it with Distress Ink. The flourishes which are my newest most favorite die is by non other than Magnolia!!! The glass butterfly baubles and stick pin are all handmade.





I am submitting my card into the following challenges
7 Kids Collage Fund 26 texture(winner)
Lothian Crafts 16 die cuts
Wild Orchids sketch 28(winner)
Hanna and Friends 103 summer(winner)

This is so sweet. I love this color combination. The image is just adorable and so beautifully colored. I wish we could share a cup of tea today and a plate of scones and discuss the new Spellbinders over our refreshments. I wonder if you are excited as I am. Hey better yet, let's both of us try out for the Spellbinders DT at the beginning of 2012 and keep our fingers both crossed we make the team and end up meeting each other in I think its Arizona.....lol Wouldn't that be a hoot.

Bear Hugs,
Carol
