Just Magnolia challenge 2 - Pink and Green

What a fabulous response we had to our first challenge last week - thanks so much to all that entered xx.  This week on Just Magnolia we have a colour challenge - Pink and Green,pink-green so anything goes as long as your creation is done with these colours and has a Magnolia image on. We have another fab prize up for grabs this week, and the winner will also be our Guest Designer for the month of May.

Okay - so I need more than a lie down in a dark room - I need therapy big time!! I used up sooooo much of my BG Porcelain papers, I was weak at the knees and sweating bullets!!! Take deep breaths Bev, slowly ... slowly ...

I love this colour combo, so much so I think I prefer it to Brown and Blue and that's saying something lol.  I had some stamped and coloured roses left over from last weeks card that were begging to be used so I popped them on the inside of the card.

I went a little bit OTT on the inside, told you I need therapy! I made a little pouch to pop the tag/bookmark that I wanted to go with the card.

This card has been made for one amazing lady and I wanted a special sentiment inside to say just how much I value her friendship. The sentiments are computer generated, font is Duchesse (a freebie font download), and I stamped around the border with chalk inks and Rubber Stamp Tapestry peg stamps.

Another view of the card, these little roses add such depth and texture to the card I think.

Recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia - Tilda with bunch of roses, and Roses, Rubber Stamp Tapestry for the border on the tag
