Magnolia-licious Challenge - Add an Animal

Hello again everyone!  It's the fourth Tuesday of the month and time again to put forth another challenge for you.

This time our challenge is "Add an Animal" to your project.  You can use any of the sweet Magnolia Animal images or combine an animal with another Magnolia Image.  There is a huge choice out there and you can check out what's available HERE in Diana's Magnolia-licious™ store. 

We would love to hear from you so leave a comment
on the challenge blog or the DT blogs this
week for a chance to win a
surprise from Magnolia-licious.

This is called a "Sliding Pocket Card" and since I was just trying it out for the first time I had to make two.  This one is a 5 X 5 card and the images I chose are #392 Tilda With Ribbon Shoes from the newest Sakura Collection from Magnolia.
My other image is #430 "Cat" from a much older collection.
Here is what the card looks like when you slide the tab up.  The little cat moves up when the sentiment  panel is raised.  The sentiment here is from SU Banner Blessings set. 

The next card is actually the first one I tried, and it is an A2 size.The directions were obtained from Splitcoaststampers, and are available to members.

Here is a view of the Pocket Card with the panel not raised.  I used #488 Puppy Love Viola for this card and the sentiment is from SU "From the Herd" set.  I also used a Cuttlebug Embossing folder called Distressed Lines on the front panel.

Here is a closer look at Viola and how I colored her.  This card was sent to a friend who is recovering from a stroke.  I thought it would be a good therapy card - hehehe!

Here is the card with the panel lifted up.  As you can see, Viola moves with the card.  The inside sentiment is also from From The Herd stamp set.

All images were colored with Copic markers and most of the cardstock is from SU.  Ribbon, flowers, and other embellishments are from my stash.

That's it for me this week.  I'll be back soon with another project.  Our next challenge is the August Blog Hop, so I hope you'll be back to see what I've created for that one.

See you soon,
Many blessings,
