Bright colors at Marvelous Magnolia


It’s Thursday and time for another challenge at Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog. This week we want you to use BRIGHT COLORS!

We have a great sponsor this week – The Ribbon Girl. Don’t you just love their online store? I know I do! 🙂

I used greens and blues on my card. Maybe not the typical bright colors, but I think that the whole card does look bright and cheerfull. Doesn’t it? 🙂

I would like to enter this card into Totally Tilda Challenge – Going for a song. I think you all know this one:

“Hands Up (Give Me Your Heart)” 
Hands up, baby, hands up,
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
Hands up, baby, hands up,
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
All your love,
All your love…

  • ink: Archival black

    Pesem si že prepevam in verjetno mi ne bo šla zlahka iz ušes, :). Voščilnici je prav "pisana na kožo", meni pa je voščilnica pisana na kožo, saj veš zaradi česa, hi hi hi, ja, zeleni oodtenki jo "osvežijo". Super je, lp, Saša
