Anything Goes at Just Magnolia

Hi there my sweet friends, visitors and Maggie lovers! Hope your year started well and it's gonna get better and better:) 
It's the first Friday of the year so we have the first challenge for 2012 at  
It's great to see how many of you are supporting our challenge blog, that means you really love your Maggies:) Our sponsors this week are the wonderful people from  Simon Says Stamp who are donating a $25 voucher to one lucky participant! 
The challenge is Anything Goes with the option of Happy New Year and/or to use something new on your project. Well I guess mine meets all these requirements. It's the first time I do merging with rubber stamps; it's a bit tricky, I think I might need more practice or a different method:) I am not quite happy with the position of the stamps; I thought it would look great after  being colored, well, not all cards are perfect, that's the charm of them being handmade:)

 I used chalks to make the sky and flowersoft, glitter and Twinklets Diamond Dust for the snow. Here's a close up:

Stamp: Magnolia- Sweet Christmas Dreams- Tilda with snowheart and Winter Night Background 
Medium: promarkers, copics, chalks\
Embelishments; Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment- freebie from here

 And some challenges for my card:

Simply Magnolia: Celebrate
Magnolia Down Under Challenges- Red, cream and gold

That's it from me today. Looking forward to see your delightful creations! You can always go and check the main blog for inspiration. My Just Magnolia teammates are soooo talented and creative:) Wish you all a wonderful creative 2012!
Big hugs,

Very beautiful card!

Fabiola said...

oh mais c'est superbe, magnifique mise en scène, je te souhaite une superbe année 2012, biz

Sandy said...

Perfect, perfect! Your clouds are perfection as is your scene. Is that a peace offering that Tilda has in her hand? I almost entered my new card in a couple of challenges and then thought the sentiment inside might offend. Oh well.. Your card is beautiful luila. from the coloring to the design and craftsmanship.
Lots of love, Sandy
