New Flourishes, Old Magnolia

I think I got this Magnolia in December and she had not seen ink yet. Isn't she sweet? I tried very hard to use these colors and NOT make a Christmas card, but I can't look at this card and not think Christmas. Even the sentiment is perfect for a child's Christmas card. I guess this is proof positive that we produce what we think about, even if we are concentrating on NOT doing it! This is for one of those mega challenges out there that all the Magnolia gals play, but I can't remember which one, so I will have to go search for it! Went and found it! It's week 54 A Spoon Full of Sugar! They post a new challenge every Tuesday. You are not limited to Magnolia stamps for this one, but most of the gals do the Magnoliaesque colored characters that are so popular right now. I can't even list all the companies!

This is my first card with my new set from Flourishes, All Wrapped Up. I almost didn't post it, as I felt that this one was a bit tortured and overdone. However, I've never been afraid to post cards I think aren't the greatest in the world. I don't know why, it just doesn't bother me or embarrass me to make a klinker now and then, I just consider it a part of the process. I do like pink and gold together, though!

Don't forget to scroll down for Stampin' Up! blog candy!!
