Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge

It is time for the Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge. Today's challenge photo was selected by Tracy. Tracy's idea was for the design team members to either use the colors or baby team as the inspiration.

Since I don't own any baby related Magnolia stamps I went with the pink and brown theme.

For my card I used a new Magnolia stamp from the 'You are So Special' collection called 'Romantic Window'. It can be seen along with the rest of the collection and purchased from Magnolia-licious HERE.

The card shape is called a 'tag card'. You can find samples and instructions HERE.

Card Recipe:
'Romantic Window' Magnolia stamp
Memento black ink
X-Press IT blending paper
Copic markers
Prima flowers
Recollection pearls
Making Memories designer paper
Bazzill cardstock
Seam binding dyed with Copic ink
Brown ribbon from stash
Sewing machine and thread

Be sure to check the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to see the design team's creations. There is a baby carriage, booties, a circle card, and cards with special folds....a visual feast for all! The details of the challenge can be found on the blog along with information about winning a prize. Be sure to link your creation to the blog.

Thanks for stopping by. Linda C

very pretty... it makes me think, maybe this window you created is right out side of the window in the inspiration photo! :-) I don't have a baby image from Magnolia also, so i have to go with the colors...

So very pretty! I've just discovered how fun it is to make those cards, and I love the idea of the window on yours. Opens my mind to imagining what could be inside. Gorgeous coloring, and very lovely bow!
Hugs. Danielle.

Hi Linda,
I have come by several times to see your card but for some reason blogger wasn't letting me :o(
Wanted to let you know how lovely it is :o)
Beautifully coloured and love the brick house it belongs to!
Great flowers and ribbon treatment.
It was nice to see a card that wasn't baby themed but in the colour combo.
Hugs, Candy

Beautiful card, Linda. You just reminded me that Magnolia has quite a number of accessory stamps that are wonderful standing on their own without a Tilda or Edwin. Thanks. for the inspiration.
