Magnolia Down Under Challenge # 80...Reduce, Reuse, Recycle...Happy Birthday, Little Lady!


Hello crafty friends! I am back with another card to share with you today! This time for the wonderful challenge that we have at Magnolia Down Under Challenges! This week the challenge is Reuse, Reduce, Recycle! I love reusing clothing tags on my cards, so that is what I have done for this challenge. I hope you can join us at MDUC, just remember that you must use a Magnolia stamp on your card or creation to be eligible for any prize! Please pop on over the MDUC blog and see the gorgeous inspiration from our talented DT and leave them so love.

For my card I used this sweet Tilda with balloon from the Magnolia You're So Special collection that came in my Winter Stampclub kit. I just love her to bits!!!! I coloured her with my Copics and cut her out and pop-dotted her on the oval. I also added Tim Holtz Rock Candy Distress Stickles to the balloon and it makes it very sparkly and pretty IRL! The papers are my new fave MME Fine and Dandy Tickled Pink. I reused this large chipboard tag that I think came on a jacket that I bought and I kept it. It was perfect for this card....it actually says Lady Hathaway on it, the clothing brand name....I covered up the Hathaway part of it and only left the word Lady and added a Melissa Frances rub-on "little". The sentiment on the QuicKutz tag is also a Melissa Frances rub-on. I added some gorgeous My Favorite Thing Twill ribbon and some Prima flowers. I also used my Magnolia Doohickey leaves dies and cut them from glitter paper. I added a few pearls that I coloured with a Copic marker to match.

Here is the inside....this sentiment came in the Magnolia Stampclub kit as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by again and having a wee peek at my MDUC card!

Happy Sampin'!

Hi Tara,

Wow love the clever use of the chipboard tag. No wonder you kept it - it's so pretty and I love the paper you teamed it with. The overall colour scheme on your card is just beautiful.

Wow Tara, this card is FABULOUS!! I love the tag idea, I am definitely going to have to start hoarding tags now (my hubby will be thrilled, lol) and Tilda is so cute... I have her on order, I can't wait to get my hands on them!!

Stunning twill ribbon & I love the way you've altered & used the tag - so clever an idea. The colours are just lovely & the way the aqua matches & holds it together with the pearls in the same colour. Love the inside too - again the pearls really hold it together as does that little loop of twill ribbon.
