Anything But A Card At Simply Magnolia.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
It time for another super challenge at Simply Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is;
Anything But A Card.
Make anything you like as long as it features a Magnolia image and no cards allowed.
Let your creative juices flow!

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is;

I have made a door hanger.

I have used Tilda With Dexter The Dragon from the new Animal Of The Year Collection.
I love these two.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a Spellbinders stately circle. I have inked around the circle with Tim Holtz spun sugar distress ink
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils.

For my door hanger I have used Crafters Companion Kraft cardstock, Magnolia "Pink Magic Bubbles" paper and Frantage shabby white embossing enamel.
Other dies used are Memory Box Isabella butterfly and cheery lynn pine branches.
I used Magnolia paper to cut the butterflies and adhered tiny pink rhinestones along their centres .
The 3mm and 5mm white pearls are from Sirstampalot.
The lace is from my local haberdashery store. The rose organza, Lucy white fine vintage style cluny lace that I have used to tie the bow, and string pearls and 5mm pink pearls are from The Ribbon Girl.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

A close up of the adorable pair.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen and used Ranger white liquid pearls for Dexter's cheeks.

Here is the door hanger on hanging on one of the door handles in my home.

I am entering my door hanger into the following super challenges;
