Thinking of You

I love magnolias, they are such pretty flowers. I've never seen a real magnolia till I saw my sister had them in her garden.  She has the white and pink magnolias and I always look forward to see them bloom, as it's a sign that Spring is just around the corner.

I couldn't wait to get my hands on this stamp set with the magnolias - Stately Flowers 3 by Melanie Muenchinger. So happy it came in the mail this week.

It's a gorgeous set, isn't it?  And, here's my card:

The magnolia flower is coloured with Copic Markers - Flower Centre (R01, R02), Petals (R81, R83, R85, R89, Leaves (YG21, YG03, YG17), Branch (YG91, YG95), Outline (BG000).  The patterned papers are from Authentique Uncommon 6x6.

This card was made for the StampTV Garden Inspiration challenge this week.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a lovely day!
