Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge

I'M BACK!!   One day after the last post.  LMBO!  Ok SO!!  I have a new card to show you for the next Magnolia-licious challenge and this time the theme is:


I like using the most recent collection for each new challenge but sometimes I really have to think about how I'm gonna make it work with my new images.  Like really reach for it.  LOL!!  Besides, stock is always better on the newer stuff.  hee hee  I decided to go with Piping Tilda and Little Rose Cake and make my shaped card with lots of flowers  I also used a Magnolia image called "Postcard".  

Here's the HOTNESS of my card.  LOL!!  Handmade candles!!  The wicks are made from a piece of wire that I covered with Ranger liquid pearls and just kept building on it until it dried in the shape of a flame.  Voila!!  

I find that when I add flowers I have to hold myself back because I just keep going and going.  The nice thing about them is it only takes a few....but really?  Am I all about FEW?!  LMBO! 

So if you can, take a moment to check out all the amazing inspiration at Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps challenge blog.

This is so freakin amazing I just LOVE it! I LOVE the colors cuz they're so fun & the flowers cuz they're so pretty & the images cuz they're so cute! OMG! I keep seeing more stuff. Where did you get the mini envelope? And I love how you made the tag circle thingy blue to match the envie! AND OMG THE CANDLES. I did not know you had that kind of patience. That's pretty freakin tricky.
