Magnolia-licious Birthday Bash #3

Well, I finally got up the nerve to enter a Maggie challenge. Unfortunately, my scanner sabotaged the colors on my Tilda with Bee. I've tried everything but this is the best scan I could get and it doesn't do justice to her colors. I think I might invest in a better scanner (or ask for one for my B'day? hint-hint) but here goes anyhow. She's colored with Prismas, DP is Crate Paper Bliss. I cut out three of the paper flowers and popped them over the bee, and used some satin flowers and ribbon I had in my stash. I pulled out my old Coluzzle and was happy to see that the ovals, circles and squares all fit perfectly with the Nestie scallops. It just goes to show - Never, never, never discard Anything. You never know when ...

  1. Great card. Actually I find a digital camera works better than a scanner. You can get good pictures of cards with lots of embellishments where you can't always with a scanner.

  2. Cute card, soft pretty colors.I agree with Peggie, a digital camera works better. Plus you can get lots of angles and close ups.
