Magnolialicious Challenge - Together Is a Wonderful Place to Be

Happy Valentines Day!
I know you've all been busy crafting those wonderful cards full of love and today is the day to finally give them away to your loved ones!
In a little change from the Pinks and Reds we've been crafting with we have a gorgeous new challenge for you at Magnolia-Licious Challenge and we want to see you use the color combination of Aqua and Brown.
This is one of my very favorite combinations, the brightness of the Aqua is tempered perfectly when paired with Brown creating a soft and calm palette.
Now although it's not Pink my card definitely has a "Love" feeling to it :)

Challenges:
Robyn's Fetish - Square Cards
Allsorts - Free and Easy (3 entries only)
The Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes (3 entries max)
Crafts and Me - New Image
Phindys Place - Circles

Card Recipe:
Image - Cuddly Siblings (Diana is out of stock but has the Mini Version in stock)
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - My Mind's Eye 6"X6" Paper Pad Paris & Co
Sentiment - Three Bugs in a Rug
Flowers - Recollections
Leaves - Holly Leaves by Recollections
Ribbon - Hobby Lobby

I love this combination, it lends itself so well to family themes, soft and vintage feel cards. I really hope you'll grab your favorite Magnolia stamp and come and join in with this latest Magnolia-Licious Challenge!
