My very first Magnolia card

I got this Magnolia stamp the other day and I just couldn't wait to try it. So I brought all my papers and embellishments out of the closet and started crafting. :) Here is the result ...

For the background I used a brownish paper from Scrapwork (As you wish products LLC; Formal Affair) and as for the blue paper goes, I received one sheet from a friend some time ago so I have no idea of its brand. It's a light blue paper with embossed flowers and I think it goes well with the brownish paper which I used for background. As you can see I also used some ribbon and lace, some Prima flowers and some brads for this product. For the die-cuts I used Spellbinder's Nestabilities. For inking I used Tim Holz's Distress Ink (Brushed corduroy). The "Best of luck" stamp is from G Studio's clear stamps collection. And for coloring I used the colored pencils.

Here you can see details of the card.
