Flowers Say Hello - Magnolia-licious 'Pretty in Pink'

Hello.  Happy Tuesday!

We're currently in our 'Pretty in Pink' challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge.  It's Team B's turn to post our DT cards/projects to inspire you to join us.  Hop over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge to get the details on the challenge and how you can join in the fun.  Don't forget to check out the fabulous cards/projects that my DT teammates have created.

This is the card that I came up with.

Yes, I know, I know...that's a whole lot of pink...tee hee...and bright too!  I don't usually play around with this shade of bright pink.  My favorite shade of pink is more in the dusky pink/dusty rose range...or at least very light pink.  But I found this beautiful designer paper in my stash and I tried to match my pink shade to the one on the paper.  And this was it!

I've used a couple of adorable Tildas on my card--one from a newly released Magnolia collection and one from an older collection:

- Tilda With Fantasy Flowers from the Lost and Found Collection 2014

- Tilda With Big Tulips from the With Love Collection 2013

You can find your Magnolia stamps at Magnolia-licious, where Diana carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and CandibeansMagnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies.  Have look at the exquisite dies from Memory BoxPoppyStamps and Magnolia Doohickey.
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and what's more, you get to earn 2% in-store credit for future purchases.  Sweet!

A beautiful card for our 'Love is in the Air' theme - however, we would have liked to see something to do with love/romance as mentioned in the challenge post.
