Magnolia-licious Extravaganza Contest

Hi,  everyone!

Eventually I'm back with a new card. It's been a topsy-turvy week and although I had great crafting plans, it turned out I had other priorities to deal with. I had in mind to make a project for the Magnolia-highlites Easter/Spring Extravaganza Contest which ends on the 19th but since I have too little time left and so many other things to do I shall have to resume to this card I made for the same contest 1st category- full size Magnolia stamp on a card.
I couldn't decide upon which Magnolia stamp I was going to use. I have ordered the entire collection and I just have to use them all at least once. They are all so beautiful! Even my husband who was a bit shocked by them being mouthless stated now he must admit  they look gorgeous. Since Easter is just around the corner I thought I should have 2 bunny Tildas and 1 Tilda with a lamb. Glad, I stopped here, otherwise my card would have quickly turned into an album or something...lol.
I'm not a pink person (so strange, because everyobody is...lol) but I realize I had a lot of pink stash. The card is slightly bigger as I didn't want everything too crowded but  I'm quite satisfied with the result! Hope you like it too!





Recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia- Tilda and her bunny, Tilda with stuffed animal, Tilda with hanging rabbit, Spring background
Coloring medium: Promarkers
Dies: Magnolia Doohickey- Tilda lace border, swirl die , lovely fence die,
nestabilities scalopped circles, Marianne design circles
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and metal corner, the lovely bunny charm is a  gift from Diana, the owner of the Magnolia-licious store (thank you so much:)), pearls from Bunny Zoe, ribbons from stash, a pink feather- it's  hardly noticeable in the picture, sorry for that, paper doily
Misc: diamond dust, sparkles, acetate, black vellum
Sentiment: freebie from Wendy- thank you sweetie
