Magnolia-licious - Color Inspiration


Well I'm SUPER excited to be posting this and many more challenges with the design team from Magnolia-licious challenge blog.  It's such an honor to be amidst the boatloads of amazing talent this group has.  Thank you so much for inviting me!

Here is my first card as a DT member using the color inspiration photo.  I took a bit of everything from the image below. 

Loved the flowers on the wallpaper so I added some gorgeous pink Wild Orchid flowers to make it pop.  My take on the challenge was the pink color, the flowers but also adding a bit of black.  I normally tend to steer clear of this color when it comes to my Maggie's but I just love the contrast.

You MUST check out all the other gorgeous creations over at the Magnolia-Licious challenge blog.  I'm sure you've seen some of these ladies designs before but my eyes just can't seem to get enough of them.  LOL!!

PRIZE!!  ---- Diana is so generous and always gives out a $25 gift certificate to her amazing Magnolia-licious store for EVERY challenge.   This is where I have bought probably 95% of my Maggie collection as well as some of her extensive collection of die products.  Huge selection of so many things!

Oh and did I mention you have 2 weeks to enter?  The challenge runs on the 2nd and last Tuesday of each month.  Tons of time right?  ;)

Diana has all kinds of specials going on:
The new Australian Collection available to preorder
The Little Christmas Collection
Turning Leaves Collection including mini's
The Mini Halloween/Autumn Collection

MagnoliaInk Magazine - 2012 Turning Leaves - I just want to mention that the prices of these magazines may be increasing so it might be a great idea to just get a subscription.  They are so full of inspiration and all kinds of wonderful eye candy gathered into one place and right at your fingertips.  Makes for handy reference.

Have a wonderful week and thanks for visiting!
