Butterflies and Blooms

Good morning everyone. Sorry I haven't posted in a few weeks. I took a bit of a break and spent time with my family before school starts.  There was also lots of shopping to do to get ready for school. Summer vacation went by too quickly.  I've also been working on a few projects for the next Magnolia Ink Issue - I'm so glad to get that completed!

Well anyways, we have a new inspiration challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog. Our theme is "Butterflies and Blooms." Isn't this a lovely photo?

I created this card with this theme in mind:

I think fall has to be my favorite season, I love the vibrant colors we see outside in the begining of the season. Everything looks like a painting and so I used those colors on my card today.  There was lots of cutting out and piecing together on this scene.  I used my favorite tree from Magnolia and the cozy house background along with my favorite stamp from this collection, Tilda with Scooter. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and my papers are from Basic Grey - Pyrus paper pack (perfect for fall).

Here's a closeup:

I used soooo many copics on this one, I couldn't even begin to list them all but if you want to know any specifics, please email me.

Well this is my last post for the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog. I've so enjoyed working with these talented ladies and special thanks to Diana and Candy for including me on this team.  They have a new team starting in September with so many talented designers. I can't wait to see their creations! I am moving over to the Magnolia-licious Store team and am very excited to work with this group of ladies whom I've admired for so long. Thanks to Diana for the opportunity.

Thanks everyone!  Have a great day! xo
