Magnolia-licious Color Challenge - Green & Orange

Welcome everyone. Time flies, and it's January already. Today is first Magnolia-licious Color Challenge and it's my turn to host the challenges this month. Since December, we see lots of Christmas and winter creations, I think we should have something warm. So for today's challenge, I would like to pick the bright colors of ORANGE & GREEN. I hope you can join us along and have fun creating something with these colors :o) Today's projects an altered box. I picked CIRCUS TILDA for this project and of course you can get this stamp from MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS.



Here is my finished Orange & Green box


Here is a closer view of this sweet image

2 Sisters Challenge #21 - Gettin' Girly
Speed the Cat's Friend Challenge #37 - Embossing
Tuesday Throwdown #30 - Embossing
Craft Your Passion Challenge #40 - Let's tie one on

Hope you like the color scheme and be able to join us along over at Magnolia-licious for the Green & Orange Challenge. Thank you so much for stopping by today and see you again soon :o)
