Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge - my firend's livling room

Hello everyone!! Welcome to another Challenge over at Magnolia-licious Challenge. This is my month to host for the challenges and one of these is the inspiration challenge and for the picture I picked for today is a living room. This living room belongs to one of my friends and I think it looks pretty and delightful. Hope to see you all to play along with us to take out your Magnolia stamps to make a project using the following as the inspirations. The projects can be a card, scrapbook page, 3D creation, etc.

Here is an inspiration picture

Here is my finished card. When I see the above picture, the Magnolia Couch/Sofa stamp from Magnolia-licious comes up in my mind. Then I started to check out which stamp I wanted to put on this couch. After did some try outs, I picked Cherry Tilda. Another item that caught my eyes from my friend's living room is the floral arrangements. So I decided to case the one on the coffee table and created the similar one with some Jolee's embellishment and a piece of DP to set on the couch by Tilda. But than I also wanted to add a patio door like the picture, so I quickly did up a little window and added an embossed piece under it.

I am also using this project for the following challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers Challenges #38 - Floral
Woodware USA Challenge #11 - Anything Goes
The Crafty Pad Challenge #105 - Something Girly
LIIU Challenge #8 - No digi and anything goes
Copic Creations Challenge #42 - Anything New (the sofa stamp)
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #45 - Anything Goes

Closer view on Tilda and I added FlowerSoft on the cherry she is holding.

Hi Cabio!
I had no idea your picture was from a 'real' living room!
I thought it was a picture from a magazine. Imagine living in this wonderful peaceful place.....
Your card looks just like your friends house!
You put nearly everything in it :o)
Tilda is coloured beautifully too.
Love your little flower arrangement on the couch and window and pearls surrounding it!
Beautiful work.
Thanks for your challenges this month - they really made me think!
Hugs, Candy

This is absolutely stunning, Cabio!
You colored Tilda magnificently...especially love her hair!!!! Your scene is gorgeous.
Beautiful job!!!!

Sandy said...

Cabio! You have pulled out all the stops on this card - my most favorite cards are scene cards -- I am visiting in this room now - I would sit next to Tilda but there is a beautiful basket of flowers next to her - love the picture on the wall -- and the pearls winding through everything with the delightful flowers - the wall paper the divider screen -now how creative is that! The colors are wonderful and her head scarf is to die for fashion. Lord Honey Child - I have a long way to go to keep up with you - but that's why they pay you the big bucks! Love your card Cabio!!!!

Wow Cabio, your picture and card are both fabulous! The warm colors, soft sofa and that fireplace make me warm on this cold winter day (actually night:).
The scene you've created induces a feeling of coziness and peace and love every detail of it. Perfectly chosen Tilda, great flower bouquet and great background with the door and the picture on the wall. You surely have a vivid imagination.
It's always a pleasure to come by.
