Just Magnolia GDT

Hi dear friends!
I'm so happy I can eventually share with you a Magnolia card! I think it's been months now since I last made one although I'm completely in love with the Butterfly Dreams and Sweet Rainbow collections- who isn't - and despite all the controversy I think this new The Winner Takes It All set is absolutely adorable. I just wish I had time to make cards...lol:) It's been a topsy-turvy vacation for me so far with little if none crafting time but somehow I managed to fulfill my DT tasks and even accept a new thrilling GDT spot. Well, I simply couldn't say no when my superhero Bev asked me to be guest designer for August at Just Magnolia. You know I love my Maggies and it's an absolute honor to be part of such a talented group of ladies. 
Here's my card:

I used three Magnolia stamps to put together my little scene; two of them being inked for the first time; I just enjoyed coloring them up and assembling this card. I love bright cheerful colors and  this rainbow themed card was the perfect opportunity for me to add as much color as I liked. Maybe I went a bit overboard but well, when don't I...hehe? 
The rainbow card template and the sentiments are a challenge win from The Cutting Cafe. I thought it was a good occasion for me to use them. Thanks Regina!

Recipe:
Template and sentiments: The Cutting Cafe
Coloring medium: Copics and Promarkers
DP: Prima- Madeleine
Dies:Magnolia butterfly and Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly punch
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, lace, rhinestones and pearls
Misc: acetate, glitter, stickles

I would like to welcome all my new followers and to thank everybody from the heart for your continual support although I haven't been much of a constant friend lately. Still, I will do my best to come and visit you back really really soon.
Before you leave, please take a moment to admire the gorgeous creations the amazing Just Magnolia DT has come up this week too! I'm always in awe of their beautiful work!
Hugs to you all and have a happy shiny week-end!

Hi Iulia!
Your card is so cheerful. I love all the bright happy colors.
I love the way you have designed the card with the lovely big rainbow and Edwin sitting on a cloud. Your coloring is great. I have just got myself some Promarkers and am teaching myself how to use them. Hopefully I will get as good as you.
