BB Magnolia Challenge #4

I wanted to share a card I made for the BB Magnolia Challenge that I had made yesterday morning while DH was sleeping....I have to say that I truly like the outcome of this card. I don't get many of these, so this is dear to my heart....lol...my vision all came together rather simply...no fussing like normal (other than cutting the jar from my Cricut) or anything....lol....the challenge was to make an easel card and use an un-inked stamp....I have never used the haunted house stamp and Miss Tilda I got from a dear friend-- Sharon (thanks girl)...and I have been dying to use the haunted house ever since the sweet Miss Diana had sent it to me.....thank you so much Diana...I can see many uses out of this stamp...she doesn't have this stamp in the store right now, but she does have other awesome stamps there to purchase...not to mention a pre-order for the new wedding collection...so hop on over the the Magnolicios Store and take a look at what she has...you'll sure not be dissatisfied...... You all know how I just love to create scenes...so I thought this would be a great scene with both of these together....I cut the jar (at which is one of my fav. cuts) from my Cricut Expression machine (5.5" Doodlecharms welded together to make card--don't forget to flip one of them--out of black cardstock--blackout) and 2 separate cuts --blackout --(out of watercolor paper) for the outside top and bottom of card...Then a black shadow layer for the top....I did cut everything from watercolor paper so I could color it in how I wanted to to be except the shadow black.....I also made this into a pop-up card....I have wanted to make one of these again and thought this would be the perfect time.....I loved how the border of birds came out too...and the glass garland was white and I water colored that to make it blend in better using distress ink black soot.... Well if you get a chance pop on over to BB Magnolia Group and play along this week...we would love for you to.......that's all I have for today....remember tomorrow is The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge Day....make sure you come back to check out what the Dolls have done for this weeks challenge....it's going to knock your socks right off your little piggies.....lol.....have a great week ahead.....Hugs from a very cooler Charm City..... this is the front view with the easel card closed....I cut the jar from Doodlecharms on my Expression machine....
here's is the open view front....Miss Tilda and the Boo letters (Schoolbook cart) all pop-up when opened....I don't know if you can see the little birdies in the center of the alphas but I used MS bird border punch for those and the border around the outside.....
and hereis the side view......Happy Scrappin....
