Hi friends! As I mentioned in my quick post yesterday, Janiel has challenged us (Yes, you too! LOL!) to use only minis on a card or project! I'm not so good at scenes with several of our dear Maggies~too much planning! But, I love, love to use them individually on A2 sized cards! That's what I've done! I'm am crazy about these colors-SUs peach parfait and Papertrey Ink's Hawaiin Shore! With a little cream and Kraft thrown in, I'm in color HEAVEN! Black is great with them too! For my first card I've used #377 Mini Traveling Tilda sitting on #517 Mini bench. I've colored her up with copics that I will list below. The roses are made from the My Favorite Things rose dies and Peach Parfait paper which is then sponged on the edges (after I made the rose) with Cajun Craze. the leaves are from Papertrey Ink.

My second card uses #3028 Mini TILDA WITH THREE FLOWERS and #504 Mini STONE WALL. I've used the same colors for my paper choices and I'll mention here that my plaid is an old background stamp from All that Scraps and the Peach is stamped in Peach in with SUs Paisley background stamps! I {{heart}} making my own dps!

I hope you like my two samples and, once again, please check out the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog for more inspiration and information on linking YOUR card or project and the PRIZE!!

Thanks so much for being here today! I {{heart}} you!

Beautiful! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these colors!!! And the roses are so pretty ~ I have the rolled roses and mini rolled roses MFT dies and have made some felt roses, but I've never tried paper ones. You've made me anxious to get them out and start creating with paper!!!
