Magnolia-licious Shabby Chic

Wow! I'm finally posting my project for the Magnolia-licious DT challenge for February! This month, our fabulous and talented hostess is Ms Patti Jo, and she is asking us to go Shabby Chic! I've been wanting to try and make a little treat container for Valentine's Day, so I took this opportunity to challenge myself.  Here's what I came up with


I tried really hard to get a decent picture of this, but to no avail. It look so much cuter in person than it does in the pic. The colors are much better. I used the absolutely adorable image of Tilda with Cherry Pie from the Sweet Crazy Love 2012 Collection  at Magnolia-licious. I  LOVE her!!! She's definitely shabby chic! LOL! She's stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper, colored her with Copic markers, and then fussy cut her out. The papers are from my scrap bin.  The hearts are cut out with Nesties, and then the strip attaching them together was done using my Scor Pal.


The sentiment is a mini Magnolia, and I think it works perfectly with her. Doesn't she look like she's totally lost in thought? Those pins were put together with some beads I have, and I stuck them through some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts that were enhanced with some Diamond Stickles.  Please be sure and visit Magnolia-licious Hightlites blog to see all the gorgeous creations by my DT sisters, and then we'd love it if you'd join us in the challenge for a chance to win a fabulous prize from Diana at Magnolia-licious. Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again tomorrow for another Papertake Weekly challenge. Hugs!
