Pink & Green...I'm lovin' it!

Hi sweet friends...welcome to Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!! I'm so excited to be your hostess for the month of April! Whoo hooo...Spring! YAY! And, for those of you who know me, it will come as no big surprise that I chose Pink & Green for this month's Color Challenge!! LOL! My fave color combo! (Although I am trying to break out of that and try some other colors with GREEN!! Have you noticed, everything goes well with green?! The color of my eyes! hehehe!!) So...enough of my babbling...here's a gorgeous photo of a pink & green flower to getcha started!

And here's my Pink & Green "twisted easel" card...

I just received a huge order from Magnolia-licious! What can I say? I have no sales resistance...especially when it comes to Magnolia images...and my friend, Diana Crick (owner of Magnolia-licious Online Store) has the best selection of Maggies...PLUS, if you're lovin' the Mini Maggies like I do, then you need to know that Magnolia-licious has the best selection of Mini Maggies in all of North America!! So...check 'em out, won't you?! Oops...where was I? Oh yes...my image...I used #275 Tilda with Lace Jeans available HERE. Isn't she just darling? And that hair! ooohhhh! Tilda looks like she might be talking to a butterfly...or puppy. Tooooo cute!

I used Blushing Bride Cardstock from SU...and Nana's Nursery DP from DCWV. Then I added some pearls, flowers, and ribbon. Oohhh...I nearly forgot...the ribbon came from Magnolia-Licious too. I ordered Rhapsody of Ribbon HERE and let me tell ya, the ribbons (all hand selected by Diana herself!) are absolutely scrumptious!! I also used several Doohickey Dies...including the DragonflyLeaf & Swirl , and Vintage Tag.

I used the following Copic Sketch Markers: E21, 00, 000, 0000 (skin); R20 (cheeks); E35, 53, 51, 50, 13, YR21, 20 (hair); R32, 30, 00, 000, RV34, 32, 10 (pinks); G28, 24, 21, 20 (greens); E25, 21, 50 (shoes); W3, 1, 00, C1, 2 (shading & ground). Oh, I also used some Prismacolor pencils to add a bit more dimension. I'm just starting out with these...but I quite like the effect!!

So...now...hop on over to Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and check out the delicious projects made by my uber talented DT sisters...and then get working on your own Pink & Green project. And in case you need a little more coaxing to join this month's Color Challenge...here it is...one lucky participant (chosen at random) will receive a $25.00 gift certificate for a Magnolia-Licious shopping spree!! I am sooooo jealous!! Thanks for stopping by...and, as always, thank you so very, very much for your kind comments! Until next time....
