Magnolia April Challenge
Well, it is the weekend again and time for me to upload two cards that I finished. Having to work for a living, sure cuts into my crafting time...hehehe.
This is the card that was suppose to look totally different. I had created this cute scene and wanted to use Tilda with Chicks and it just would not work. With hubbies help I made another card using the scene, which I posted last Sunday.
Now this is a very serene card, compared to the other one and this one I entered for the April challenge on Magnolia-licious. You can buy Tilda with chicks here. I love Tilda with her chicks in her lap. I think it is a cute image.
I never have listed which white CS I use and never have heard of anybody else using it on the blogs I visit. I got the idea from Sue at Heart Prints. Another exceptionally gifted card maker. The white CS is 80#Beckett Expression - Radiance, which I order from Marco Papers. Very nice people. The orange and green CS is DCWV. The DP is from a 6X6 MM pad called Chloe's Closet. My cards look a lot better than my photographs, really. The buttons are also from the same line and I connected them with baker's twine from MS. For the flower on the front I punched out the same DP and put them together with a gem brad. For the edges I used a MS and a Fiskars punch. The label for the sentiment is from SU and the sentiment is in German from WOJ. When I saw that Katharina had 2 sets of German sentiments, I had to have them. Now I am finally able to send my cards to family and friends in Germany using "our" language....hehehe. On the inside I used again DP from Chloe's Closet and the flowers and the button from the same line. The label is a Nestie, unfortunately, the embossing doesn't show up well on the DS. I almost forgot. I colored the image with Copics and added Diamond Glaze to the little chicks.
So what do you think?
