Easter wishes shaped card (Magnolia image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Oh it's been a little while since I created a card using a Magnolia image but this is one of my favourite Magnolia stamps, she's just so sweet. I have used her before so I'll add the pictures below, I always like to see how different the cards end up if I've used the image more than once and also if my colouring has improved. I try to usually create with different images every card as I really do have so many, I even have a digi folder titled "not yet used" and I have a fair few in there but I'm a crazy cardmaker so I have used hundreds already hehe. My followers will know how many cards I create!
