Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar Challenge

It's Friday and that means it's time for another challenge at Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar (gosh that's a mouth full hahah!)  This time around the design team wanted to see what you could do with this wonderful sketch by Mina:

You know, when I looked at the circle and was trying to find a cute sitting Tilda, I came across this one called Fairytale Tilda and I saw her on the 7 Kids College Fund site.  Oh, I still love her soooo much.  That Fairytale collection is tooooooo cute! So I am so pleased to use a stamp more than once haha!  The LOTV sentiment seemed to go along with her perfectly!  I colored her in copics and the papers are a mismatch of MME and Papermania. 

Awe! Here she is in all her glory; glitter and all.  You can see I used another Crealies border no. 11 around the circle.  These are just so much more fun than my scallop nesties.  

Beautiful small flat gardenias, open roses and crystal chandeliers all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I like these chandeliers soooo much better than some other brands because they are not as bulky.  They are on a thin wire that is easy to work with.  The baby pink rhinestones in the corner are also from Wild Orchid Crafts.


I had a great week this week!  I was in the top 3 at the Teddy Bo Challenge and 7 Kids College Fund.  Thank you to all the design team members of these challenge for choosing my cards.  I am over-the-top thrilled!

On a not so happy note,  I have to have a root canal today! Yikes!!! I do not like going to the dentist at all.  She has had to give me something to calm my nerves before I go in.  Let's just hope all goes ok.

Have a wonderful day everyone!  I hope you will be able to join our challenge!

Hugs, Dena
