Pink and Yellow Challenge Card

I created a pink and yellow card for the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. Pat invited me to join in the challenge even though I am not sure my cards are good enough to be entered into a challenge. However, I had fun creating and making this card. Pink is one of my favorite colors and yellow does look nice with it (Of course, I added a little purple as well as that is my other favorite color. I guess I am just a typical girl.) I chose to use a bright pink instead of a pastel pink as I enjoy the jewel colors more than the pastel colors. I also got to ink up one of my new Magnolia Stamps from my pre-order and use my new Magnolia Doohickey die called Doily Flowers. I just love this Snowy Hugs stamp. I knew when I saw it that I would get that one as it can also be used after Christmas for just a winter card. When I created my first flowers with the Doily Flower dies, I thought that these dies create beautiful flowers. I attached the small and large flowers together with an antique brad from Stampin' Up.



Here are a couple pictures of my card:

Items Used:

Stamps: Magnolia and Stampin Up

I am also going to enter my card in the 7 Kids Give Thanks Challenge. I haven't entered my cards in many chanllenges, so I hope that I have good luck in these two and can gain some experience in making cards for challenges.

Thanks for stopping by to see my card, and I hope that you will leave a comment if you have a moment. Have a great stamping day!!
