C'est Si Bon......

Good morning!

I have a Magnolia card to show you today which I made with a couple of challenges in mind. Firstly, I noticed this week that Raise The Bar are asking for something inspired by your blog header.... what a fun idea! So I set to work with the same Kay&Co papers I'd used for my header and cut the flowers out in the same way. I also used a Martha Stewart edge punch and Tilda had to make an appearance. I wish there was a challenge to 'pimp your Tilda' this week too..... as I cut off her original wings and then added the wings from the Magnolia Doo HickeY die recently released. There's an idea for a challenge if anyone wants it then..... 'pimp that image', lol!

I'm also entering the Everybody Art Challenge which has a theme of making your own flowers and a new challenge called Tip Top Tuesday where the idea is to share a new concept or tip. I'm showing two ideas with this card...... one is creating embellishments by cutting them from design paper, in this case the flowers and the second is altering an image by adding something new to it, in this case the die cut wings.

I may be back later to add on a couple more challenge..... see what I can find ;o)

Edited: I see that 7 Kids College Fund Challenge has set a recipe as this week's theme...... a minimum of 2 design papers, 3 flowers, 1 sparkly item and 1 image carried by the shop. In case you're wondering, my sparkly item is the trim on Tilda's dress ;o)

Have a wonderful day!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
