Love is in the Air

Hello everyone.  I have been trying to get this card finished for a few days now and you know how it is, something always comes up (like midnight!! LOL!)  that keeps me from finishing it - but today I just let everything else slide and completed it!  It has been ages since I have made a Magnolia card, I am just slipping into the Magnolia Down Under Challenge and MojoMonday.

The MojoMonday sketch was perfect to use with Tilda, I love all of the layers involved.  The Magnolia Down Under Challenge are asking us to use our stamps differently - this Tilda had a Merry Christmas banner, so I used heart brads over the banner and now it would be great as a Valentine card or to send someone and let them know they are loved.

Tilda has been coloured with Chalks (no surprises there, you know I LOVE my chalks) using a blender pen and popped up onto the DP with foam dots.  All edges on the card have been sponged (of course! LOL)  The beautiful lace is part of a RAK I was sent from my friend Maxine (aka Kiwime) and fits perfectly with this themed card.  I finished off with black gems. 

So there you have it - I an thinking that this would be one of my favourite colour combinations, it always seems to work so well, no matter what the card!

I am also linking this card to the ABC Challenge where L is for  layering.
Everybody Art Challenge - favourite colour combo.
Roses on Paper - favourite medium - Chalks & Distressing Ink

  Thanks for coming by and for your encouraging comments - you know I love to see that you have called in!  It is Saturday afternoon here and HOT - we are all 'chilling out' inside with the air conditioner on...much nicer! LOL!  I hope you are having a great day and manage to 'chill out' too!  God bless you!
