Two challenges in one card

The other new challenge blog I have found is called stampin for the weekend. They had a colour combo called "from dusk to dawn" (purple and yellow) as their first challenge. I got a bit confused because they wrote: "Not a normal color scheme you see."
I thought purple and yellow was a typical easter combo? Like green and red for Christmas.

Confused or not I decided to go with one of my new easter Magnolias and the paper I bought for my cousin's graduation card that I didn't use in the end. It has both purple and yellow in it so I thought it would turn out great.

I also decided to jump on another challenge called just Magnolia. They had a great sketch this week. I haven't joined them before since I haven't had any Magnolias until recently. Now that I have a couple and like to play with them I wanted to join. Who knows what stamp/stampline I'll favourise next week, lol.

Promarkers used:

ivory (face)
ice grey1 (hair)
amethyst and aubergine (dress)
blue pearl (socks and lace)
apple green and blender (neckline on dress)

Yellow cardstock embossed with my cuttlebug. Text printed on the computer.
Great tip: I use different fonts that I've downloaded for free from dafont. This way I can write anything I want in any size with many different fonts.

The Tilda dress is not paperpieced - it's just coloured :) Thanks for all the wonderful comments about my colouring skills. They make me very happy!

Cute card Katarina, lovely little Tilda, great coloring on her. Lovely little flowers too, looks like you're getting an early start on your Easter cards for next year.

Hi Katarine

I'm glad to hear that you have treated yourself to some Magnolia stamps, aren't they adorable. Your card is truly beautiful, love those Wisteria papers and they are perfect for our first challenge over at SFTW. The way you have positioned Tilda looks brill and very effective too, do I detect paper piecing for Tilda's dress, it looks fab, such pretty flowers too. Hopefully you will be able to join in with many more of our challenges at SFTW, good luck xx vicki xx

I just wrote a comment but there was some error with blogger, so 'm not sure if it went through, sorry if you get two comments from me. :)

Like I said, your card is beautiful! I really love your colouring of Tilda, it's perfect. The paper is gorgeous and the flowers give such a nice touch. I love the embossing on yellow cardstock. :)
