FIRST MAGNOLIA ATTEMPT

So I gave into all the buzz about these Magnolia stamps and bought a bunch of them along with some copic sketch markers. I realized it's going to take a while to learn how to shade and blend the colors together on the stamps, but for now I am content with what I have made. I decided to add a Magnolia stamp to my fiances Valentine card and I think she turned out really cute :)

Too cute Melanie! I love the arrows and the little heart border on the left side is wonderful! Was that border done with the Cricut?
