Magnolia-licious and Live and Love Crafts

On this post I have combined some of my favorite products so it ended up being one of my favorite cards too!  LOL!!  Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps current challenge is:


and the theme the girls at Live and Love Crafts are
using to show inspiration this week is


It was tough to decide which favorite color combo I wanted to use because I like pink and brown, well pink and anything really but I also love blue & white with brown mixed in for a color combo.  I would like to use it more often but it seems like there's a lot more pink or other colors out there than blue.  I've used some gorgeous papers from Maja Design called "Life By The Sea".

This little doll is "Gone Fishing Tilda" from the new Sea Breeze collection available at Magnolia-licious.  I framed the image in gorgeous lace called Madeleine from LLC (see below), added a small piece of lace above the banners and used the doohickey Tilda lace die for some paper lace.  My white Magnolia flowers also have some lace mingled within and those are from LLC.

I used the Cloud and Flag and Spruce Twig doohickey from Magnolia-licious and added a little shabby seam binding bow from LLC.  I've also used these gorgeous NEW foam flower stems and foam flower buds available at LLC.  They come in 5 different colors and the buds come in blue and white.  OH and of course I HAD to add a few gorgeous Kort and Godt rolled flowers.  

An "up close" shot of more details ... do you like seeing these pictures so big?  I just hate to take pictures and have people miss out on something so cool and I love sharing such incredible products and don't want to leave anything out.
