Kisses and cake...mmm mmmm!

Hi guys...full disclosure...I'm scheduling this post because as you read it, I'll be in Phoenix, AZ hanging with my five adorable grandchildren...and their parents!! So I'll make this quick...

Once again, our sweet and talented DT sister, Linda, is our hostess...and she's given us this fun photo as inspiration...Hmmm...Kisses? Cake? Love? Layers? Sailors? So many options for this challenge!

Well...since I'd made a "sailor" type card for our last Magnolia-licious challenge, I decided to take inspiration from love and red, white, and blue...and layers...and here's what I came up with...

I used Real Red cardstock from Stampin-Up...and a fun new Nestabilities die called "Heart Circles"...no DPs this time...very clean and simple...kinda like the inspiration photo. I used two of my fave Magnolia images for this one...Cool Edwin (from the "Sweet Rainbow Collection") and Tilda with Heart (from the "You Are So Special Collection")...both are currently available at Magnolia-licious as Minis. Here's a view from the side...I used about a kabillion little foam dimensionals to pop up these layers...LOL!

Here's the list of Copics I used to color these cuties:
Skin: E21, 00, 000, 0000
Cheeks: R20
Hair: E19, 15, 11, 25, 23, 53, 51, 50, YR 21, 20
Dress: RV11, 10, 000, R01, 000
Heart: R27, 24, 22, 20
Jeans: B97, 95, 93, 91
Shirt: B00, 000, 0000
Shadow: C1, 0

Next you'll want to stop by Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and see what Linda and the rest of my talented DT sisters have created for inspiration. Then...be sure to join in the fun by making and entering your own creation into this month's Inspiration Challenge. Remember, one lucky participant (selected at random) wins a $25.00 gift voucher for a Magnolia-licious Shopping Spree courtesy of our most generous friend and owner of Magnolia-licious, Diana Crick!!

So, that's it for me!! See, I told you it would be a short one!! Thanks so much for stopping by...and for your kind comments. Gotta run...going swimming with the grandkids! Until next time....
