Feels Like Spring!

Hello everyone!

I've been MIA again!  Tax season just started...  and as you know, I hardly have *a life* during these days :-(

But still I managed to take some time off and craft a little ;-)

So today I want to show you a Magnolia card I did, which I also did for several challenges...

The challenges are...  Cute Card Thursday *Signs of Spring*...  Magnolia Down Under Challenges *Flower Power*...  Wild Orchid Challenges *Anything Goes*...  Lollipop Crafts *Think Spring*.  It's been so long since I don't participate in a challenge as normal competitor...  and not as a DT...  that I completely forgot how exciting it was! :-D  I only wish I had more time to do it more often.

Anyhow...  about my card...  this time I tried different colors to color Tilda's skin.  I usually go with Distress Inks *Tattered Rose + Tea Dye*, but instead I used *Tattered Rose + Vintage Photo*.  Loved the way it turned out...  but man, it was scary!  I really don't know how my fellow Magnolia DT members do it...  they always go for the most eye-popping colors and then use them beautifully.  Oh well...  I better stop panicking and start practicing instead, right?

Well, *thanks* for stopping by!  And as always, at the end of this post is the supplies list.

Happy Stamping!
