Mad about Magnolia

Good morning beautiful!
I had to say that lol one of my favorite YouTubers always says something like that at the beginning of her tutorials and it makes me happy so I thought I'd give it a try! Anyway the post of the day is actually dedicated to my first coloring of a Magnolia image for a card and here she is:
I have a bad habit of buying cute little odds and ends from the 50 cent bin at my local craft store with every intent of using it on...something? Well that something never comes up so my great buys just pile up. Oh come on don't look at me like that, I can't be the only one! Well I finally did something about it and the majority of my embellishments used on this card were actually less than a dollar! This magnolia stamp is one of the many Tildas, colored with copics on Georgia Pacific cardstock. I added stickles to the cream colored parts of her outfit and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress ink in the color spun sugar. The glitter paper was from my scrap pile but the rest of the papers used were just plain ol cardstock from Walmart that I took a stamp and some creativity to. The flowers, roses, buttons, ribbon, lace, and pearls, as I mentioned before, were all out of the 50 cent bin from my LCS. This card is probably my least expensive to make and came out a beauty! I will be entering her in the following challenges;
