Magnolia-licious June Homepage Card Challenge

Hello everyone. Are you all having any fun yet? I sure do have fun whenever I finish a project.

Today, I was planning to do a card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge, but I haven't thought of an idea yet. When I went down to my craftroom, I saw some Creative Imaginations DP which I got from Michaels when they went on sale. I remembered there was a "Patriotic" theme challenge for the Magnolia-licious Group July's Homepage.

Sorry, but the Sugar Bowl challenge has to wait until a later date when I have a light bulb in my head. There are too many interesting online challenges and I have had a hard time keeping myself organized. For example, there was a Friday Sketchers Challenge that I have completed last Saturday so I could join, but by the time I finished the card, I had passed the due date and another sketch was already up.

Now you can see how organized I am. LOL (ROFL)!! However, I will post the July Homepage Challenge card as well as my late entry card for the Friday Sketcher in this post.

Here is my card for the Patriotic challenge

I used copics for coloring, cut out the hat printed on the DP and punched out the stars the same DP to make that circle embellishment as well as using it for my origami paper. Such a useful piece of DP. I also added the fire crackers embellishment by Jolee's to match up with the theme.

This was the card I completed and was going to submit for the Friday Sketcher Challenge, but past the due date.

Closer view on my friend Tilda!

From now on, I got to get a piece of paper to draw down the challenges that I am planning to do and make sure I also put down the due date besides it to remind myself. I guess it has to do with aging.....hmmmmm....

Thank you all for dropping by! See you all soon.

Cabio, OMG. What a stunner your July homepage card is. I love all those embellishments you put on it and the 3-D effect. A lot of work you put int this one. I have those DD's too--yeah also got them on sale at Michaels.

Love your 2nd card also. This Tilda card is beautiful. Sorry, you were late with this one for the Friday Sketchers. But listen, go to the Sketch Saturday challenge blog. Their sketch this week is similar and I think you card meets all the required elements. Enter it there.
