Midweek Magnolia #62 Colour Inspiration

Good morning my dears,  Time for another new challenge over at


As you can see from the picture above we have a colour combination for you this week, I'm loving this mix of colours, it screams summer (which we are all waiting for) lol, I wish it would hurry up and make an appearance, in fact spring would be nice but I think that season has given us here in Scotland a miss this year.

Anyhoo!! I digress.  For my card I've used the sweet Tangle Tilda  from the Once upon a Time 2013 collection and coloured her with Derwent soft pencils this time.  My papers are a mixture of Tim Holtz, Karrs and Prima.  I will pop a list of ingredients at the bottom of my post for you with links where possible. 

In the meantime please do pop over and take a peek at the amazing creation my fellow DT on Team A have conjured up for you this week.  As always please read the rules on the sidebar so that you don't miss out on the fabulous prize which the lucky winner will receive from Magnolia Sweden.

Challenges Entered:

Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia:  Have an inspirational picture for you this time.
Magnolia Down Under:  Would like to see Lace & Flowers this time
Bearly Mine Challenge:  Anything Goes this week.
Bastel-traum Challenge:  The theme this month is Birthdays.
Creatalicious Challenge:  Have the theme this month of One for the Girls. 
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop:  Would love to see some lace. 
Ribbon Carousel Challenge: This month the theme is Celebration but don't forget to use a spooled item.  I've used thread on my button and quadrupled it to make it a bit thicker.
