A Magnolia card for several Challenges

Hello Everyone! I am still off work with a poorly chest. I am on my second lot of antibiotics now and have had a chest X-ray as my Doctor thinks I may have a touch of pneumonia on my lung so I am resting in bed as I am very tired. I have been able to craft a little and have been doing lots of blog hopping and was inspired to dust off an old Magnolia stamp to enter a few Challenges. 

I used papers from the CartaBella Baby Mine Girl pad which are just beautiful! I think I will be using the whole pad of these. The sentiment is also a Magnolia one which has been in my stash for a long time, I added it to a die-cut Dienamics banner. I added lots of Ribbon Girl flowers and some pretty pink Ribbon Girl lace.

As I used a lot of flowers, I kept the other embellishments quite simple. I added a chipboard button by Crate paper and some wooden Butterflies from Artcuts. 

Here is a close up of my coloured in image. I originally coloured her dress in dark pink but it just did not look right so I paper pieced it with a spotty paper from the pad. As a finishing touch, I added some glitter to her crown and wand. I think she looks really cute and I will be digging out some of my Magnolias in the future to have another play.
I am entering my card into the following Challenges:
The Ribbon Girl March Magnolia only Challenge - Girly
The Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia Challenge - Girls only
Simply Magnolia - Bingo ( I chose Pink/Die-cuts/Flowers)
Sketch Saturday - Sketch #275


I hope you have a lovely Thursday!
