I am very excited to take part in my very first Blog Hop. The "Pretty in Pink" Blog Hop is hosted by the Design Team for Magnolia-licious. You have been on a very exciting and hopefully inspiring journey viewing all the wonderful "Pink" creations. I humbly submit my creation. Since discovering Easel cards it is all I seem to make. I LOVE THEM and they provide many different options. Instead of attaching a square of card stock to your easel try adding a whole card.
For my card I chose paper from the Magnolia Collection "Yummy for Your Tummy". It is a lavender pink checked paper that matched perfectly to SU Pale Plum. The flower image is from "Lazy Summer Days" Collection #427 Lazy Summer Flowers and  #222 Bunny Tilda Check out #224 Lazy Summer Tilda. For a quick and easy card combine Tilda with the flowers.
Copics:
Flesh: E000, E00, E11
Blush: R20
Hair: Y19, E33, E35
Outfit: RV91, RV95, YG93, YG95
Grass and Leaves: YG93, YG95
Flowers: RV91, RV95, RV69, Y19
Basket: E33, E35
Eggs: Y19, RV91, RV95
For sparkle I used "Diamond" color Stickles

As you can see I have used the same markers for different aspects of my card. I designed this card for a class I am going to teach at a "Card Making Retreat" on Vancouver Island so I had to keep the total of the markers to a bare minimum.
If you would like to take a return journey, start again at your first port of call, the wonderful blog of the incredibly talented Kerry Donovan Casey
There is an amazing prize "A Plethora of Pink" for some lucky person. You will be uploading your card to the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog. There is a photo of the prize on the blog plus I might include a Maggie or two. I do hope you will take part.

If you would like a chance at winning the "Bunny Tilda" stamp please leave a comment.

Absolutely darling. Those colors are great.

Charlene said...

Hi Diana! It feels like forever since we've chatted and so awesome to be able to see your creations on your blog. I ADORE the Magnolias but as I've said, they scare me as I have yet to own any Copics and worse yet, would need a class to know what to do with them. I can drool and dream,however. Super cute card for a sweet little Easter girl. Awesome!

Carol Meadows said...

This is so cute! Thanks for posting. I am behind the times and need to even learn how to post such things. I got a new computer but delayed in learning after this surgery but I will get there sooner or later. At least I get to peek at everyone's work of art. Thanks for sharing.
