This month our challenge theme is to use 

"Your Favourite Stamp "


I honestly don't have a favourite Magnolia Stamp because I love them all!!
 occasionally one jumps out just slightly more than the others when

although they are all adorable in their own right. 



My papers are by Lemoncraft and are the 6x6 Daydream collection.

I also made my flowers using Foamiran pink 0.6mm and added some deep rose
Oil pastels to the edges the dies I used are Peony #1 dies from Whimsy 
I also used some chipboard which at the moment is out of stock but there are still 
lots to choose from LaseroweLove and Scrapiniec


Here is a close up of those pretty flowers
