My Magnolia Friends

Today is my day to show you my creation for the fall colors challenge at Magnolia Stamp Lovers.

I made this card for a co-worker whose mom is turning 80.

003 copy (Small)

Here is a close up of Congratulation Tilda from the So Special Collection.

004 copy (Small)

A close up of the Zva swirls. Love these things!!

005 copy (Small)

Close up of the flowers around the image.

006 copy (Small)

Now, the inside. I used several images to depict the grandchildren.

007 copy (Small)

Since I filled the inside of the card with Maggies I had to create something to write on so I made a slide out journal.

010 copy (Small)

OK, so now that you have seen all of the pictures it is time for a list of materials:

Phew! That sure is a lot huh? It’s awesome that you can purchase all of those items, and more, at Stamping Scrapping.

I’m taking a shot at entering this card in the following challenges:
