Magnolia Down Under Challenges DT - Song Inspiration!

Woohoo!! It is time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenges and this week we have a great challenge - Song Inspiration! We would like to see your cards with a theme inspired by a song. Can you guess which song I have been inspired by?? Let's Go Fly a Kite from Mary Poppins. I had a few ideas of songs but this one meant I got to ink up Tilda flying kite again and I just couldn't resist her! I am also going to enter my card into the Copic Creations challenge as they would like to see grass/bushes etc created with copic markers and I have added some grass around Tilda's feet.

I masked Tilda with the gorgeous Sweet Rainbow background and have coloured them with copics. I tried to keep the background fairly light in colour as I thought my last attempt at this background was a little too bright. I have added stickles to the circle and white liquid pearls to all the tiny dots on the background image.

I cut the kite myself from some Magnolia papers and added some twine from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and some gingham ribbon from my stash.

I'm not quite happy with this bit of the card but it was too late once I had realised I didn't like it :S. I added some fencing with the Magnolia doohickey die and the heart swirl for some foliage along with some roses from my stash. I wish now I'd cut the heart swirl from white or kraft cardstock as I don't like the green but I had already glued on the roses with my glue gun!

On the base of the easel card I have used the doohickey tag die and added another kite from the gorgeous bumble bee Magnolia paper. I have left the tag blank as I'm not quite sure what occasion I will give this for yet.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges! Pop over to the blog to see the amazing song inspired cards from the rest of the team - there are some amazing ideas! Thanks for looking! x
