Magnolia Down Under : Flowers

We have a nice easy challenge for you this week at Magnolia Down Under, it's flowers. They canm be on yout papers, in your stamp, hand made whatever. I have used some roses and cherry blossoms from I am roses, and both my images have a couple of flowers in them (happy coincidence, this was in no way planned, lol!)
This was the first card I made when I got my Fairytale Maggies from Kellie, I had been dying to ink up the castle stamp for ages... and about 10 seconds into colouring it I wondered what I had gotten myself into, hahaha!! But it was all good and I love the stamp, I don't have many Magnolia backgrounds/accesories but this was one i had to have, perfect for this Midsummer Tilda to dance on the steps of (thanks heaps Kylie for stamping her up for me!) She is actually foam mounted but because the weather is still pretty craptacular I had to use the flash to take the picture, hence the washed out colours and general dodgyness (beyond my usual dodgyness that is :D) The Magnolia stamps and pearls are from Tickled Pink Stamps.
I can't wait to see what you all create with this fabulous challenge, for more stunning inspiration make sure you check out the amazing DT work here...

Fran, your card is beautiful, the background and Tilda are wonderfully coloured, a stunning Princess scene, I hope Prince Edwin sweeps her off her feet. A wonderful take on the challenge with so much inspiration for all joining MDUC this week. Hugs Jodie from Oz
