Magical Magnolias

When I saw the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger, I knew what to do. I've had this Hero Arts stamp for quite a while but have not made a card with it. I have experimented with it when I first got it but was not happy with the results. I used my favourite emboss resist technique for this challenge and combined it with the current Colour Q challenge and came out with a result which I'm pretty happy with. I've also sprayed the card with Perfect Pearls, although the sheen on the card does not show up in this photo. I've ordered a Nikon D5100 and it should arrive next week, so my photos will improve. Yay! I'm also submitting this card to the April Hero Arts contest and the Simon Says Stamp April Showers/Spring Flowers Challenge.
BTW, I love magnolias! My neighbour across the road has the same one as the trigger photo. We just recently planted the dwarf variety with the white flower in our front yard. We couldn't afford to get a mature tree, so we got two smaller plants, so far so good, one of them has even produced one flower!
