Magnolia-lcious Challenge!

The challenge is to make an easel card which turned out to be easy and fun! I think my difficulty was being torn between my wonderful Halloween images and all the terrific Winter and Holiday cards I'm seeing! I decided to forego the monochromatic part of the challenge and do a Halloween card.
Perhaps you saw the ones that Claudia (my stampin' hero!) made using the Easter window and this same paper? They are wonderful cards and I fully admit to stealing her idea! I put the window with Tilda with Kitten (available at Magnolia-licious) and also used the bat, both pumpkins and the spider!
So I've also channeled the wonderful Sharon Caudle and Jacque Beddingfield and made a scene card!
I think this little Tilda looks like a witch in training!
It is gloomy here, but I persisted in taking outdoor pictures so I've posted many hoping for a decent one!

I'll keep the rest short! Here are the colors I used:
Skin E000, E01, and E93
C1, C3, C5 and C00 for her dress
W1, W3, W%, W00 and C9 for the window as well as BG0000, Bg10, Bg72
Y21, Y17, YR65, YR16 Y0000, E99
Hair Y21, E17, E99 and E25

I guess that's it for now! I'm off to start cleaning the attic and throwing away stuff not needed!
The FABULOUS cards from the other designers can be seen by clicking on the Magnolia Highlites blog link to the right! Please take a look! They are AMAZING!!

Hope you have a wonderful Saturday and thanks for stopping by!

Love this Cheryl! I made an easel card too after seeing it on Becca's blog - then found out it was a Magnolia challenge so I submitted my card even though I didn't use Magnolia stamps on it (!) but I just love how it came out - I'm going to try it in all different sizes!

You Tilda is so cute - and I love the window, walls and bats on this pretty card!
