Magnolia Mood for JAI 702

In keeping with my resolution to get back to doing craft things just for fun, I decided to join in with the challenge at Just Add Ink. It's been far too long since I played there.

I was having a bit of a play around with Magnolia Mood and wanted to use parts of the set that were not the absolutely stunning large magnolia image. The sketch was perfect in that it was asking for smaller imagery. 

It's really a simple card. I stamped three of the bud images in Basic Gray, coloured them with Pretty in Pink and Old Olive Stampin' Blends then die cut them.

The circles were cut using the Spotlight on Nature dies, and the two with cut outs I backed with Old Olive circles cut with Stylish Shapes dies.

The sentiment is from Country Birdhouse and cut with banners from Stylish Shapes.
The background is embossed with my favourite folder, Distressed Tile 3D.

Update: Delighted to get an Honourable Mention at Just Add Ink.
