Magnolia-licious™ Tuesday Challenge - Love is in the Air

Hello dear friends and welcome back to my blog.  This is my first Tuesday Challenge post for 2015 and I'm excited to be joining Team A for the Tuesday Challenges.

At Magnolia-licious™ Challenge Blog we are kicking off the new year with the theme "Love is in the Air".  I know when you visit the other DT members, you'll come away with lots of inspiration AND we want to see what you can come up with.  You have the whole month of January to create something sumptuous and post it to the Challenge Blog.  I can't wait to see what you've come up with. (see the end of my post)

Here is what I have done...(you will have seen my other card in last weeks post, but I did this card first and especially for the challenge.)

I made a Side Stair Step card using #A7 Tilda with Dexter the Dragon

This is a closer look at my coloring.  You can't tell here that the image is mounted on a Wobbly...

I haven't done any Stitching on Cards for a long time.  I felt it was time to bring this delightful art back to my work.  I use variegated machine embroidery thread to stitch on my cards.  I love how it changes color and gives movement to the pattern.

Here is a side view of the card.  Now you can tell that Tilda is standing up and away from the mat background.  My sentiments are from SU and LOTV.

Here you can see the Wobbly at work.  I had so much fun with this card and am looking for other creative ways to use these fun embellishments.

I even finished the back of my card.  On the smaller panel I put my signature at year made.

Now it's your turn. You have the entire month of January to get creative and post your work to the challenge blog.By leaving comments on the DT blogs your name will be entered into the drawing for a wonderful surprise package from Diana at Magnolia-licious™

Ciao Ciao,
