Easter Magnolia

I just finished making these cards this morning. I had to ink up my stamp as hubby said to do in order for me to buy more stamps...lol. These cards were made for a swap in my MSN group that my girl Nic hosted this time around. When I first chose this stamp as my hostess stamp...I really didn't like it. Once I inked it up though, I loved it! Just a single flower can give so much POW without looking too over-done! I added these teeny tiny beads in the center and some dew drops on the leaves. Outcome...very happy! What do you think? I know Magnolias are normally white...but I did a Google search...lol...just to be different and found a pretty yellow one, so I went with that! ;)

CS: LLace, PPlum, & White non SU
Ink: Jet Black Staz-On & Prismacolor markers
Stamps: From The Garden
Embellishments: N/A
Others: Diamond Glaze, Ticket corner punch, & micro beads

Beautiful flower card. Love the use of microbeads, and you are too funny googling magnolias to see what other colors them come in. I would have never thought of that.
