Magnolia-licious Easter-Spring Extravaganza Contest

Hello friends!!!

PHEW!!!!!! I literally had to come in here and throw my pictures in. I hope i make it on time before the deadline.
Diana from Magnolia-licious is having a contest which consist of , Magnolia Easter/Spring theme at Magnolia-licious highlities. I'm also playing in few other challenges not many :)
Well a while back i was debating what to do.Remember i had some cards up and wasn't sure to enter them or not.Well i decided i had to do a scene as you all know I LOVE MY SCENES LOL!
I been super duper busy with projects which explains why I've been MIA for a few days.
This is one of them ((smiling)) and I hope you like it and boy was this alot of colouring.


I did a jumbo Easel card because my usual 6x6 wasn't cutting it lol!
My base is my ultimate favorite digi, Rainbow Meadow from MIC.

I did some free hand clouds to finish the ends lol!!

Oh i just love how my Edwin came out .I did the Zoe pleating technique as i call it.Well i did minor ones because i was scared to go in full. Is it crazy how a small pleat gets a girl crazy?? BAAHAA!!

Please don't burst my bubble i'm in cloud 9 with my pleat lol!
BTW all my flowers are from MS and that grass behind my Angels is a part of a stamp set my friend Kristel sent me part of her blog candy,THANK YOU GIRL!!!
I did a simple banner and i swear i tried keeping it simple but was tempted to keep adding.Originally it was a sticker that I took apart and added my touch with lots of glitter:)

Well i hope you enjoy my creation and hopefully you like it so much you vote for me (insert puppy eyes here).
I'm not sure where the votes will take place but i will update on my blog or if it's going to be in the actual challenge blog. Will see how it goes :)

Thanks for stopping by and i thank you in advance if you leave me some love.
((lots of hugs))Ruby
I'll be back tomorrow with another creation :)

  29. Hi sweetie! I've been admiring your work for 10 minutes now- which is quite long given the short amount of time I have these days:)- and I'm thoroughly in love with your project. I'm one of your greatest admirers when it comes to coloring. Love all those pleats and I agree, your Edwin looks smashing. So do all those cute Tildas. Great coloring of the backgound too.
    I shall have to watch more of those amazing tutorials by Annika and Zoe too. Still, they dont help me too much as I use Promarkers and there's quite a bit of a difference.
    Oh, shut up Iulia, Ruby must go bake some cakes for Easter.... lol!
    Keep my fingers crossed for you sweetie, your project is gorgeous.
    Hugs and have a happy Easter!
