MDU DT Challenge - Easel Card

Happy Thursday Everyone,

Click on photo for a closer look

My first DT Challenge for Magnolia Down Under Store. I just received my Design Kit from Kellie, & it felt a little like Christmas, woohoo.

Kellie set each member of her DT a challenge - we were to use a specific image that Kellie nominated from the Yummy for Your Tummy Collection - I was asked to use the Delicious  Dot Muffin and Magnolia Designer Papers. I decided the Muffin would be a perfect seat for Tilda or Edwin for a Birthday card. I also featured it seperately with the sentiment, I wanted to show how easy it can be used on it's own also.

You can see what the others girls came up with for their challenge here - very inspiring! Kellie also set a challenge for YOU - and you have a chance to win a $10 store voucher - check it out at the same place here.

Sneak Peak at the the new Magnolia Christmas Collection. OMGosh, the stamps are adorable and the Christmas papers are stunning. Kellie has pictures available in her Magnolia Down Under Store here. They are NOT available yet, but Kellie is taking orders for them now.

This is also my first Easel Card, template here & directions here. This card was resized to 6" square. (1 pc of cs at 6x12" & scored at 3" & 6", 1 pc cs at 6x6") Thanks to Suzanne Dean Head Designer of Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge.

Chef Tilda, Dot Muffin & Pattern Paper from Magnolia's Yummy for your Tummy Collection, coloured with Copic Markers, CS - American Crafts, Border Punch - Ek Success, Leaf Punch - Martha Stewart. Sentiment stamps - Hero Arts, Ribbon - from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, Roses & pearls unknown.

I haven't had much time in blog-hopping and leaving comments lately, so I am backtracking now.
OMG, Jodie. I love this easel card too. Can't decide which one I like better--this one or the one after. Now I must really give the easel card a try. You are such an inspiration to us all.
