Stamp and Create w/ Magnolia..Spring

Good morning-
Super excited about today's post.
This is my FIRST ever Magnolia DT...and I have to thank Lacey, for asking me to join the team.
I was so excited and nervous at the same time, because I didn't want to fail her or these wonderful images.  So today it's all about Magnolia!!  YEAH!!
This is our second challenge at Stamp and Create with Magnolia and they run for two weeks.
So you have plenty of time to join us.

This weeks theme is:
Spring Theme Image w/ Flowers/Blooms

What do we consider a Spring image?:
Flowers, Butterflies, "New Beginnings" (baby/wedding), Rain, Sunshine/Outdoors, Baseball, Valentine's Day/Love, Mother's Day, Birthdays. Colors are more bright or pastel.

Here is what I created for this weeks challenge.
Isn't she just adorable?  I love her one piece jumper and the beautiful luscious tulips.
She has been colored with Copics and the patterned paper is Echo Park: For the Record 2.
Flowers are from Wild Orchids: Large White Gardenia, Sweetheart Blossoms,

This weekend I will be practicing my coloring Magnolias with my distress inks.  I have loved this look for the longest time and my friend Janne, sent me some goodies to get started and I have to do it...I have to...I have to!!!  :)
