Magnolia Down Under Challenge Side Step card

Good afternoon all my blogging friends.
I hope your week is going well.
Today I am back as promised with a new card for the
challenge: **IT TAKES TWO**
use both Edwin and Tilda on your creation

I have made a side step card. This one is a bit more sturdy than the first one I made after taking a few hints and tips from you my readers. :o) THANKS!!
For those of you that have not done one of these yet and would like a link.
Just click here to find a tutorial.
I have use some of the very new Magnolia stamps. I love this collection.
I have to tell you just how this card came to be. I received my DT kit from Magnolia-licious and was doing the awww and oooouuussssss over the stamps and just happen to say to my hubby that I was going to do a card with Edwin using his binoculars looking out at the ship in the sea background and my hubby said now why can't he be looking at the cute little mermaid??? LOL... MEN!!!! So that is how this card was done. Perfect for this challenge. I showed him the card and he just laughed at me. Because I took his advise. LOL.... I really like just how it turned out. So thank you for your support and idea Rand.
I have used some of the very cute CLOUDY SKY paper by Magnolia Ink and can be purchased at Magnolia-licious.
Papers and these cute little stamps can also be purchased at Tickled Pink for you girl's down under.

Close up view of that little sweet mermaid and the background stamp. I have used my round nestie to pop the background on and have used brass brads all around it. If you look close you will see that I have used a very cute little rub on fishy swimming with Tilda.
Now it's he just handsome in his sailor suit??I have colored all image with my copic markers and watercolor pencils.In this photo you can see the blue trim that I have used just under Tilda in the water.

Here is a side view so you can see the folds of the card. I have used Bazill cardstocks, Magnolia Ink paper and MME paper.
Embellies: I have used some Jolee's, K & Company and the little crab is by Martha Stewart.
I have used my distressed inks for all the edges. I did NOT sew on this card. That is strange for me! I sew on all of my cards. LOL...
I hope you enjoyed your stop here today!
Well, now some very sad news this week with our wonderful teams at Magnolia Down Under We have 3 of our very super talented ladies leaving our teams. They are all going to be very missed as they all do GORGEOUS creations week after week and they are all so supportive of the other members. I wish them all the best of luck and want them to know I will miss them and their beautiful works of art for this challenge blog.


If you get a minute stop by their blogs and see their beautiful creations. HAPPY WEEKEND everyone!!!!
Make sure to stop by Monday as the Magnolia-licious DT has a fun Birthday Celebration Blog Hop to celebrate Diana's Birthday this month.
Hugs, Janiel
