MAGNOLIA - licious

When the Magnolia stamps first came out, I was not into the cute stamps but since then they have grown on me.  I still do not actually own any but borrowed one from a friend to make this card.


I stamped the image and colored it with Tombow markers.  I outlined the entire image with light grey to help it stand out a bit more, then cut it out with a Spellbinder die and sponged a little pink ink around the edges.  This is layered onto a bright pink decorative paper, which is layered on top of a light grey layer, then on white.

I added flowers (pink and dark grey) and green decorative rectangles to complete the card and meet my challenges. For a final touch I added pink buttons, green buttons, and two little green w/Polka dot bows.

This card is entered into the following challenges:
