Pretty in Pink!?

Hi and welcome to the Magnolia-licious monthly Blog Hop! We are so glad you're here! If you came by way of the very talented Jacque of Jois de Vivre, you're on the right track! If you want to start at the beginning that would be the amazing Claudia at Pretty Pressings. Our goal was to entertain you with lots of pink! Well, I just may be a little off track with mine! EDITED TO ADD: APOLOGIES! PLEASE START WITH THE FANTABULOUS KERRY OVER AT THREE CLOVERS! She's got the most romantic card and evokes memories!

My plan was to be funny and do this as my SECOND card with one sporting Tilda as my FIRST! Well, that joke was on me as DH and I finished my craft room this weekend leaving precious little time for actually MAKING cards!! I had this guy colored up from a couple of days ago so quickly got him onto a pink card!
Of course, my Edwin image came from MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS and I think he is so versatile! He's number 107 and is in stock! My dp is retired SU Raspberry Tart with a card base of Purely Pomegranate.
My pink copics are R81, R83, R85
Blues are B21, B41 and B45. His skin is E000, E01 and R20.
Thanks so much for hopping and stopping here and now your next stop is the wonderful Suzanne Dean over at ScrapBitz.
If you would like to leave a comment I would love to send this card out to you with a little pad of Basic Grey paper as a thank you for visiting! Please join in on our theme and create your own card for a chance to win a load of pink stuff, including stamps, I'm sure! You can see the prize and upload your card at our blog-Magnolia-licious Highlites!
Again, my thanks!
Big Maggie hugs,
Cheryl

Hi Cheryl. This card really works, whether you were short on time or not. I just love the DP - one of my favorite colors. I am getting ready to order from them this week and wish they still had those papers. This young man is charming, and I can imagine his nervousness as he gets ready to take his flower to his young lady friend. Oh, the bloom of first love, and you have showcased it all right here. Thank you for sharing it with us!
