My first magnolia

It is beautiful outside. The sun is shining and the robins are back in the garden again. A true sign that spring is around the corner. I bought two Magnolia stamps,
which are my first. This little girl holding her first bouquet is still dressed in
her warm jacket, expecting the warm breezes. The daffs are poking up and the trees
have buds swelling. A super day. The DP paper are two unknowns, but the deeper
silver embossed avacado paper is hand-made and is so very unusual that I had to have
a piece of it. I used a Nestibility die on this one and also a Cuttlebug folder
called Swiss Dot. I like the DP cut on the angle. It makes for a pretty background
interest. To colour my Magnolia stamp, I used Copics, SU markers and Gel pen.
And my bling was in the pink crystal braid holders and the soft blue flowers I used
for contrast. Plus I lined the center swiss dot piece with silver ink from my painty
