Todays Challenge....Magnolia Vs Stampavie

The title of this weeks challenge is Double Trouble. I should have know I was in trouble just from that! The challenge was to use any 2 stamps from either Magnolia or Stampavie. This was a challenge for me in every sense of the word!! Since I've been only stamping a short time my stamp collection is not as diverse as I would like. Then along came January and those stupid resolutions, lol. My husband & I are on a very strict budget so there won't be as many stamp purchases as I would like. Anyway I digress- this was a challenge because I only own 3 Magnolia stamps and 1 Sarah Kay stamp and none of them are related. So I decided to go with a winter/spring theme.

Challenge 2- matching winter/spring paper. I was wanting something bright and sunny for the spring half but had no winter paper that coordinated well with it. So I came up with the pine paper which is from a winter collection of papers.

Challenge 3-Copics. Again, I am limited in this area as well. I need a whole lot more of them!! Overall, I think it turned out pretty well. I used my flock for the first time on the coat trim. The color is pixie pink and I am now hooked on this stuff!! It is much easier to use then I would have thought and it does add a nice touch.
Hope everyone has a great week.

Take care,
