Magnolia Down Under Challenge #16

Hello everyone! I'm back with a card to share with you. But before I go on, I would like to extend my warmest regards to those who prayed for me during my Australian Citizenship test and my medical procedures which all happened last week. Thanks sooo much especially to my church family who, of course, also prayed for me. God is really good as I always say, and He is good all the time. :)

Okay, now on with the card. I haven't been making cards lately but I have coloured few images given to me by my online friend, Bec of BizzyBecs. :) So, I started with the Magnolia Down Under Challenge #16 for some Mojo-kick! LOL! You know sometimes it's hard to create a card when you took a vacation from doing it. The mechanics set for this challenge is to use the following colour combos:

- Pink, Brown and Cream/White
- Orange, Brown and Cream/White
- Blue, Brown and Cream/White

Yay! Soon as I saw the colour brown, I got so excited! Just in case you don't know, brown is my favourite colour. And combining it with other colours (especially with pink and orange) is as easy as a breeze to me. ;-) I chose the first colour combo for my card.

Here it is:

This card also highlights one of the new accessories stamps by I used this sofa/couch where Tilda comfortably sits on. This is superb Bec, very perfect for those sitting Tildas. (thumbs up for you!) Here's another shot:

I also once again used my Shimmerz (Butter Cream) and applied a bit of it just enough to cover the middle part of each petals, leaving the colour cream of its sides. I also applied Shimmerz onto my cream paper rose...

and shimmerz onto Tilda's brown dress. I hope you can see the shimmery effect on this photo.

I'm into finishing another Tilda card and will post it tomorrow after doing the house chores. :)

Let me know what you think and thanks so much for visiting.

God bless us all!


ETA: The Choc Chip cs that I used is the negative side of Nestabilites die cut from which I cut out a scalloped oval that I used for another card. I was thinking of using those "negative sides" so as not to waste it (especially if a Choc Chip cs was's my fav!) that's why I took the chance of using it in this particular card. At least nothing was wasted! ;)
