Magnolia Princess!

Boy, has it been a long time or what for me to play with the Maggies? I wanted to use this adorable castle that I got recently from Magnolia Sweden.  So I am entering the Magnolia Inspiration Challenge.

I can't tell you exactly why, but this is one of my very favorite Tildas.  I think she is too cute looking at that frog!  haha!  The challenge was to do a  Criss Cross card.  Silvie has a wonderful tutorial if you would like to check it out and join in HERE.

Sorry this next photo is blurry, I had a long day and didnt' feel like retaking it.  I wanted you to see the card insert.  I put the sentiment "You have to kiss a lot of toads before you find your Prince Charming".

I know, lots of photos huh?  Sorry about that. 

I used distress inks to color all of the images! It took quite a while to color them up haha!  I do loooooove the castle though!!!  My papers are Pion designs and sent to me by a very adorable friend in Sweden mwah!

My flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts!  I used the two toned large curly rose, Walnut 25mm and 10mm Open RoseLilies6mm Rosebuds, and ivory lace.

Okie dokie! That's my card! I'll catch ya later!

Big hugs for visiting me!
