Tilda in Green & Blue...

Hey kiddos!! So...here's something cool...it's the second Tuesday of October!! We've had some lovely "early fall" weather here in Richmond, VA...and I am totally lovin' it! My sweet hubby and I have even started doing some walking with our two furbabies!! The leaves haven't started changing colors quite yet...but soon, I suspect!! And then, before we know it...Winter Holidays! Wheeeeeeeeeeee!!

And, how cool is it that it's time for another fabulous Color Challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! Our very talented DT leader, Candy, is hostess for this month's Color Challenge...and she's chosen the yummiest color combo...

Blue...Green...& White or Clear

Oooh...and Candy chose this gorgeous blue & green photo to help give us a wee bit of inspiration...

Now...in case you're wondering...I'm swearing off Clean and Simple cards for a while! LOL!! And I thought it would be fun to make a Tent Card. You can find a really simple tutorial HERE by my incredibly  talented friend, Dena!

I used "Tilda in Winter Night" ...she's so dang cute, don'tcha think?! And she's available at Diana Crick's Magnolia-licious online store HERE! Here's sort of a side view...

And my card "Recipe"...
  • Stampin' Up Cardstock (Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue)
  • DPs: Bo Bunny "Blitzen" Collection
  • Ribbon & rhinestone swirls: my stash
  • Sentiment stamp: Lili of the Valley
  • Liquid Applique (for the fur)
  • Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Nestabilities & Cuttlebug corner die

Here's one last pic...
