Magnolia-licious Challenge

Hello glad to see you back!!  I couldn't wait to share this project with you this week.  I used the new "Tilda With Big Cup of Ice Cream" from the brand new "LOVE" collection and "Strawberry Ice Cream" (cone) from the older 2009 Lazy Summer Days collection.  Yippeeeeee I finally got to use it!! 

I love the way her dress turned out but just so you know, it took 4 tries.  LMBO!  It doesn't come easily but nor did Copics.  PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!!

Don't ya just love the ice cream scoop charm?  Between that and the papers, which are also a Magnolia product, I was so happy to be able to use some stash!!  I knew I was holding it for the right moment!!  LOL!!  I also added some pretty opaque pink ribbon under the white rose ribbon to add some more texture.  LOVE texture!!  :)

This week our wonderful teamie Chris has come up with another gorgeous picture for the inspiration challenge going on right now at Magnolia-licious.  You could pull all kinds of idea's from this picture couldn't you? 

 As always our dear Diana has a prize ready for this challenge's winner!
