My Last Just Magnolia DT Card

Hey girls, in case you didn't already see over at the Just Magnolia Challenge, I have decided to step down from the team.  It's just one of those things where there is not enough time in the day for everything.  I'll still be entering from time to time, but at my own pace.  Our theme this week was set by the talented Mo, and is PINK, PEARLS, AND LACE.   So here is the card I made for the challenge :

Don't you just love burgundy and pink together??? Ohhhh, I do!!!

I stole a card idea from my friend CLAUDIA!  Be sure to check out her amazing blog!!! She has so many wonderful ideas.  This was a card she did ages ago and I sketched it out to remember the function.

I like how the little tabs tie together with a fun enclosure.  Claudia put tags in hers and I just made a large file type pullout.

Card Ingredients:
Stamps:  Magnolia
Inks:  Copics (can you believe it?)
Paper: Making Memories - Je t' Adore
Tools:  MS Pine Branch Punch, Magnolia Doohickey, Scallop Circle Nestie, Sewing Machine

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Pink Valentine
Creative Inspirations - Lots of Love

That's about it for me today.  I hope you have some great things planned for the weekend!!

Hugs, Dena


  1. Goooorgeous!! Have a lovely weekend ♥

  2. What a super cute card! Love the colors and lowers and the DP is great! Hugs, Hanneke

  3. Love the LO of this card! Your colouring is fab as allways!
    Hugs Christel

  4. Talk about ending on a high note, this is stunning, Dena! Love the card layout - I visit Caludia's blog regularly, she is a wonderful inspiration! Beautiful papers and colouring, and lovely embellishments, too! I'm sure you'll be missed on the DT, but we all know what it's like not having enough hours in a day and sometimes something has to give! Lisa x

  5. Oh this is a beautiful card!
    Hugs Tammy

  9. I love this, Dena, gorgeous, perfect colour combination!
    hugs, Alina

  10. Aww Dena, i was unaware of your leaving, and i will miss this set of designs, however,i understand your reasoning. I was on 3 design team that supply my designs to shopping tv (create and Craft) over here and even though i loved the stamps the pressure on one of those DT's was just too much for me and i didnt have enough time, so i made the decision to step down, sometimes i wonder whether i did the right thing but in hindsight i know for definite that i did. I know you are on lots of other DT's so it won't be Adious!! lol..on another note, this card is absolutely gorgeous i love these shades of plum/burgundy that im seeing you use more and more, im in the middle of putting something together that has the same colouring, see i like dark colours and the only light colours i like are pastels, i hate vibrant in your face colours, but thats just me, i'll tell you a DP pad that would go well in these shades, Prima Botanical, gorgeous papers, well, all of Prima are but this pad goes with these tones, love it as usual girly you've inspired me and given my eyes a feast to rest upon, thanks hun, hugs Vick xxxx

  11. Well, I must say you are leaving with a BANG because this like all your card is stunning!!!

    I visit your blog all the time not because you are on a DT but because you are full of inspiration, so keep them coming.


  12. Wow!! This is a fabulous card, love the pink and burgundy.

  13. Absolutely gorgeous, perfect colours and colouring! hope you have a lovely weekend. Teresa x

  14. Hi Dena...I completely understand needing more time for new things. Good for you for taking care of yourself, girl!! Your card is brilliant! I agree with Debbie, you are going out with a bang!! I may be "stealing" this fun design from you! hehehe! Hugs. Pat Frank

  15. I've often wondered how you girls juggle all the crafting and family obligations...whew!!!! Good for you for taking care of yourself FIRST!!
    Your card is A DREAM and I don't want to wake up! Soooo gorgeous....loving the papers, beautiful lace and that amazingly colored Tilda. Yes, I recall seeing that style of card on Claudia's blog. She is indeed a very inspirational artist and so are you!

  16. This is fantastic - you are an amazing designer. I am sure Just Magnolia is going to miss you but a lady always knows when it it time to leave!!!!!!!

  17. Oh Dena I am sure you will be missed so much, your designs are always so creative and inspirational, just like this one, it is exceptionally beautiful, those papers the design and of course Tilda all look stunning.

  36. Hi Dena, better late than never is my new motto for 2012!

    Fabulous card...but you know I expect nothing less when I visit you!

    Time is precious, so of course I fully understand that sometimes we all need to make changes and free up our time.
    I seem to average one card a bad is that? But between work and family it's all I can manage.

    Since I missed last weekend totally...enjoy this weekend Dena!
