Hello!!! I don't know where December went, but WELCOME to January and 2013!!!  A big thank you to you for visiting here today, too!!  The MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS design team has a new challenge for you for today (and for the whole month!!).  Since maybe a break from the holiday crunch is in order you can use your Magnolia-licious stamps to create ANYTHING YOU WANT! We would LOVE to see what you come up with!  For further inspiration, here is the link to the MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS CHALLENGE!  I hope you like my title-6 layers on the card AND a layer cake!
  My card features something old and something new!  I've used #3068 TILDA WITH HEART SOCKS from the new LOVE COLLECTION 2013 and #435 SUMMER CAKE from an older collection. BOTH are available at the links above and at GREAT prices!!  AND credit back for the dollars you spend!
 I stamped each of my images on Xpress it Blending Cardstock and colored them with my copics.  So that the images would fit better together I trimmed off the bottom edge of the cake image.  I think it still looks GREAT!  I used colors to match my new Basic Grey Lucille 6x6 pad.  To accommodate my new taller image I made my card 4.25" by 7" tall.  I will have to look for or create it's own envelope but I think it's worth it!   I hadn't used my sewing machine in a while so I added that it.  My little corners are from Spellbinders Persian Motifs.  I cut the smallest medallion from expresso brown and then quartered it.  I glued those pieces behind my layer of expresso.
I used copics in the following colors:
skin E000, E11, R30
hair E50, Y21, E33 and E97
blues BG10, BG11, BG72 and BG49
reds R30, YR09 andR05 (after the reds I toned it down a bit with E42)
Now, please, please consider joining us in our January challenge and show off your creatity in any way you want!
I'm off to continue working on our Christmas cards (which are now New Years' cards!)  Better late than never!!
Hugs to you and all best wishes for 2013!!
With deep appreciation! Cheryl
