New Magnolia Cards

Please scroll down for my Cupcake Inspirations card.

I finally got to play last night with my Sweet Crazy Love Magnolia kit.  It arrived shortly before the holidays, but I didn't have time to play.  For my first card, I used Tilda with Cozy Heart.  I colored her in black and white.  I hadn't tried doing skin in black and white before and I really like the way it turned out. I used iridescent sparkles for the heart.  I dug some papers and black grosgrain ribbon out of my stash and included a pop of red.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Magnolia Down Under #129 - black and white image
3. 7 Kids #38 - try something new - I tried coloring skin with greys.
4. Crafty Creations #152 - something new
5. Let's Ink It Up #19 - anything goes
6. Really Reasonable Ribbon #40 - Valentine's Day
7. One Crazy Stamper - red, white and one other color - I chose black

I went totally the opposite direction for this card - pink all over the place.  I used Tilda loves flowers.  I think I may have gone a little overboard with the flowers on my card...I really need to work on the elegant floral arrangements I see on other cards.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. TOMIC #32 - monochromatic pink + bow
2. Magnolia-licious Highlights - anything goes
3. Just Magnolia #139 - sketch
4. DYSU #54 - pink
5. Paper Sundaes Second Birthday - I love challenge #56 pick your sundae toppings.  I love pink and flowers!
6. Stamp and Create - anything goes

I used the following products for these cards:




Happy Crafting!
