Stamp and Create w/ Magnolia Challenge #8

Good morning!!
It's time for a Magnolia challenge over at Stamp and Create
The challenge for the next 2 weeks is:

Spring  with Buttons

What is a Spring themed 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.

Now, please be gentle if you would.  I am still dabbling in the world of Magnolias and with every new release, these stamps are getting more and more amazingly irresistible.  :) 

So here is my card sample. 
For my card today, I am using Tilda with Love, which I completely adore.  Even though it was a Valentine's release  she is perfect for any heartwarming occasion.  I've colored her up with my Copics on X-Press it paper.
The greenery were cut using Memory Box dies: Fresh Foliage.  The flowers were created with Prima Marketing flowers, which I have a bucket full and my buttons were from my stash. 

So grab your Magnolia's, your favorite coloring medium, BUTTONS and join us!!
