2 New Cards for the Just Magnolia challenge

Another double posting day!
There are so many challenges and their deadlines keep catching up with me! LOL
I loved this sketch over at Just Magnolia so much that after doing one for them I used the same sketch again for the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group July card challenge.



For this one I used the Tilda with Flowers from the Chasing Butterflies collection. I colored her with my Copic's and the dp is DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl stack. The border punch is Martha Stewart and the sentiment is another Studio G $1 stamp from Michaels. I used lots of Nesties too!



Inside I added a colored "Tilda head"! LOL




The Yahoo group challenge was to create a card with Red, White and Blue to help celebrate the 4th of July Holiday. I was a little stuck as which image to use so in the end I chose one that I thought would take the colors well.
I chose Tilda with Slate and I think she turned out cute!
The dp is from an older Summer Stack by DCWV and the border punch is Fiskars Threading Water. The rhinestones are from the $1 spot at Michaels.



The inside was simple with just an additional sentiment.
Anyway the weather is still grey and a little rumbley so I'm going to try and get another card made this afternoon...it's an obsession I tell you!

Katie - Your cards are beautiful. You had a great idea for card 2 - about school and freedom to learn in the USA. The first one is just so pretty with the flowers and border punch.

Oh I just love both of them!! I like that US colors are red, white & blue. Canada are red & white. Although you can still make great cards with those 2 colors, I would love to have had 3. Boy when they picked out those, obviously no women were around! LOL! :-)
