Just Magnolia - Fave Colour Combo

I got home from work yesterday afternoon unexpectedly early and it was still daylight enough for me to make a card for this week's JUST MAGNOLIA & HANGLAR & STANGLAR challenge, who have the theme of your Favourite Colour Combo.

This is what I would refer to as a LBIMH card (Looked Better In My Head) but it's bright and cheerful so here goes!


I've used the delightful Leaning Tilda and coloured her with a wash of distress inks.  My favourite colour combination of the moment (yeah, I'm a fickle little squirrel) is sky blue and yellow - which is a good job as these Papermania Capsule Collection papers fitted the bill perfectly.  I cut a Nestabilities frame by tacking the two dies to the paper at the same time and then using the larger of the two again to cut the background for the frame.  EK Success retro flower punch for two corners and a Sizzlets photo corner die for the other two.  I used white Card Candy and coloured them with ProMarkers to match in.

Right, got to dash - dental appointment in half an hour, and I am bricking it ......

Hugs, Sxx
