Hello there, I hope you are having a fab weekend. This month I was the hostess for the challenge over at Magnolia-licious. Since this past month we’ve been working with a new collection called Bon Voyage, I thought it would be fun to make a card and a coordinating backpack or suitcase. For details and links be sure to jump over to the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog. Also, this is my last post for Magnolia-licious, so in many respects it is another Bon Voyage. It’s a hard group to step down from, but I need to free up a little bit of time. I’ve been with the group over a year and will miss everyone terribly.
For my card I’m using #3006 Tilda on the Loose. Tilda is colored with Copic Markers and her dress is pieced. I used a piece of textured paper to make the suitcase and I also used it as embellishment on the card and is cut with a border punch. Tilda is cut from Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM and popped up on Spellbinders Beaded Ovals. I had a fun little postage stamp that I used for embellishment that I popped up on Spellbinders Eyelet Squares.
I don’t use brads very much any more but since I put them on the suitcase they seemed at home on the card. A ribbon knot was the perfect place to nestle a pin with pearls and bobbles.
