Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge

Happy Tuesday!  Here's a picture for this month's Inspiration Challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  I'm hostess this month and thought it could be an Anything Goes with the option of embossing.

Here's my card which did not photograph well especially the flowers which are not red but a fuchsia shade of pink IRL. Oooh DUH ~ Since the card is white on white, I should have used a darker background for contrast. 

I used an older Magnolia called Sitting Baby Tingla and the Congratulations sentiment.  It's currently out of stock but Diana has an amazing assortment of adorable baby stamps in stock perfect for a baby shower, a congrats on your new arrival or even 1st birthday.  Card background created with the Heritage Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The rest of the materials used are listed below.

Paper: MIC Blending card stock
Ink: Encore Metallic Pink Pigment ink for background, Memento Tuxedo Black
Copic:  E000, E00, E01, E11, E18, E23, E30, B0000, B01, B02, Y0000, Y11, Y13, Y17, R20, RV02, RV23 & RV25
Cherish Pebble:  Prima
Other: Flowers, pearls and brads from stash

Have a great week and don't forget to join in the fun for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Magnolia-licious online store.  Can't wait to see your creation.

Hugs,
Maria
