Magnolia-licious blog hop - Easter Extravaganza Contest!!!

Good morning and happy Monday! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It's time for a blog hop to celebrate the amazing Easter Extravaganza Contest that is going on right now over at Magnolia-licious Highlites!! If you haven't been over there to check it out, I have to ask what are you waiting for?? Diana is offering up the most amazing prizes ever!!! There are three different categories, and you can enter one project for each challenge. That gives you three different chances to win prizes! Be sure to check out all the details over on the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog!  To celebrate this contest, the Magnolia-licious Design Team and the Magnolia-licious Challenge Design Team have joined together to have this blog hop. All the projects are spring themed, and we hope we can inspire you to enter the contest. If you made your way here from the fabulously talented Chrissy, then you are on the right track. If not, then you'll want to go back to Magnolia-licious Highlites blog so you don't miss out on any of the fabulous eye candy the Design Teams
have to offer you. (I'm sure there's probably a little bit of blog candy along the way too)  For my card today, I chose to represent category #1 - Full sized Magnolia images on an Easter/Spring Themed card.


I used the following stamps from Magnolia-licious #363 Tilda and her bunny, #560 Wheelbarrow, #449 Big Hoppy (LOVE this stamp!!!),  and Happy Easter sentiment stamp which is also new with the Butterfly Dreams collection. But I don't see it up for sale at Magnolia-licious right now.  The images are colored with Copic markers (I really do not like how her shirt came out - but just didn't have time to recolor another one. So sorry for the bad work!)  I masked off the wheelbarrow and airbrushed the sky. (colors listed below). Both Tilda with her bunny and Big Hoppy are fussy cut and popped up for dimension. I also added machine stitching and a cute little bunny charm (sorry I have a huge collection of charms and can't remember where I got these).


I colored the three Kaiser pearls to match the copics used on the card, and the bow is made using the Bow Easy and May Arts silk ribbon. The inside is simply finished off with matching paper. Now it's time to hop on over and see what my extremely talented design team sister and friend Barb has to show you! But before you go, be sure to leave me a comment on this post before midnight on Friday night, March 25th for your chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate to Magnolia-licious!! Thanks so much for participating in our blog hop today, and hope to see your entry to the contest over at Magnolia-licious Highlites!! Hugs!!

flowers, shirt, and ribbon trim on hat - R12, 14, and 17
pants and hat - B91, 93, 95, and 97
