Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar - Coffee and Cream

Hello everyone! Thank you all so much for the sweet comments on my most recent cards.  It seems everyone enjoyed the Whimsey Stamps Hop with the Sylvia Zet images!

My card today is for the Just Magnolia and hanglar Stanglar Challenge.  Pops is our  hostess this time around and she chose the theme of "Coffee and Cream". 

Seems I have been using these colors a lot lately with all the Fall themes and such! haha! 

I'm also happy that I didn't buy any of the last Magnolia release with the sports figures.  It gives me more time to use some of the ones that I love that don't get enough attention, like this one.  I think she is adorable. I used 3 different Magnolia stamps for this card.  I figure I will write something in the sign when I decide where it is going.  I don't know, do you have any ideas?

Card Ingredients:
Stamps:  Magnolia
Inks:  Distress Inks
Paper:  Pion Designs
Tools:  MS Frond Punch, MS Monarch Butterfly
Embellishments:  Natural Cotton Lace, Sm. 2-tone Chocolate Brown Gardenia, 20mm and 10mm Ivory Open Roses,  15mm Chocolate Brown Open Rose all from Wild Orchid Crafts!!!

My pretty pin is a gift from a sweet blogging friend.  I think these are just too pretty!

Be sure to check out the other Design Team's card, they are all gorgeous!

Thank you again so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it!

Have a wonderful day!

I so look forward to certain days of the week since I know it's a "Dena" day. And today is not only a "Dena" day but a OMG one, I love this and how you used the brown tones, giving it a vintage feel. You combined the 3 images perfectly, not sure what I would write in the sign, looks fine just as it is...don't mess with perfection!!!

Hi stunning colouring with this gorgeous Tilda. Love the challenge theme. I figure Tilda is missing Edwin and the sign should say Boras 5 miles lol. Super inspiration Kitty :D
