Spring Magnolia

I finally finished this card this afternoon, and had my husband do the photography for once, so the pictures should be much better!  I combined the 2 magnolia challenges, Just Magnolia and Magnolia-licious, for this card.  Just Magnolia's challenge was to make a 'bright & Zingy card' and Magnolia-licious is to make an easel card.  This is my second try at the easel cards!



This card has tons of dimension... Tilda is popped up with foam, as well as the flower and tag.  The buttons had to be raised up to hold the top of the easel up, so it is raised up with 3D glue dots.

I coloured the images with prismacolor pencils, and outlined with a grey copic marker.



I then cut out both images, curled the flowers out on the tree a bit, and mounted them both onto the white background with the sky and grass already coloured in.

This card definitely should qualify for the 'Pink' challenge over at the Little Stamp Shoppe!  I just love the soft pink tones of her dress!

The profusion of buttons also counts towards Kraftin' Kimmies challenge to use buttons on your cards.

Lastly, over at Everybody-Art's blog, Challenge #61 is to use punches or shapes on your card.  My flowers were punched with EK Success Retro Flower punches!  The tag was done on my cricut.
