Pink, Blue and Green at Magnolia-licious

Happy Tuesday Everyone!   This week's colour challenge at Magnolia-licious is to use Pink, Blue and Green on your creations.  Checkout the beautiful creations made by my fabbie Teamies.  Hope to see you join in the fun.

I made a gift bag using my fave My Mind's Eye DP and the sweet Tilda Wants a Hug, in-stock at Magnolia-licious.  Image stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Copics.

Felt flowers made with my new fave Sizzix die called 3D Flowers, available at Scrapalicious.  I added pearls to the centers and punched out leaves with my EK Success hand punch.  The pearls on Tilda's ponytails were a very light green so I coloured them with Copic YG03 to make it a more vibrant green.  Beautiful ribbon was a gift from my fabulous friend Bernie.  Prima Pearl swirls, hatpins plus heart charm are all from my stash and finish off the bag. Copic colours: E000, E00, E11, R20, White Sharpie Poster Paint Pen for the dots on Tilda's cheeks, YG11, YG03, R0000, R000, R81, R83 & R85.

I followed Angie's fabulous tutorial for the 6" Circle Gift Bag.  This pic provides a side view.

I hope I've inspired you to join in the fun and submit a creation.  You have until December 21 AND one lucky participant will be selected by Random.org to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the Magnolia-licious online store ~ woohoo!  

Happy Hugs,
