I do not personally own any of the Magnolia stamps but borrowed some images from my good friend, April. This little girl is such a precious little image that can be used for so many different themes and cards. I decided she was perfect smelling roses on a beautiful summer day.
I started with a white card base. The next layer was green polka dot paper and I added three strips of light airy lace. The next layer is bright pink decorative cardstock with stripes and dotted circles. I added this with foam tape.
For the main center I cut out a white oval and embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder. I sponged a little light blue ink on the top, green on the bottom, and added pink into the embossed flowers. This is layered onto a green scalloped oval and I punched tiny holes in each scallop to give it a bit more lacy look. I added the cute Magnolia image on top of this. She is colored with Tombow markers, cut out, and attached with foam tape.
For the final touches I added three roses on the bottom left and the top right. With the roses on the bottom I added three different ribbon “stems” and “leaves”. The sentiment is a cute saying from Sparkle N Sprinkle. It is called My Sunshine and can be found here. I stamped it in deep pink, cut it out with a label die, and sponged the edges with light blue to look like a cloud.
