Power Poppy’s Magnolia Sunshine

The last few days have been so beautifully sunny.  I know it’s not Spring yet, we’ll still have cold weather or another cold snap for at least a month yet, but its so nice to get outside and feel the warmth of the rays on your face isn’t it?  I’m very much in Spring mode with designs and this is my third Spring floral design this week.  It just cheers me right up.  This time I pulled out Power Poppy’s winsome digital design Magnolia Sunshine.   I so wish we could grow Magnolia trees here.  They are so showy!  And though I really love the pink blooming ones, this time I thought I’d colour the magnolias to be more of the creamy white version.  

This beauty is so fun to colour.  Those pretty daffodils are such a nice shade of yellow to play with.  Colouring is all done with Copics and I accented the whole design with these pretty dies from Spellbinders.  The overall card is about 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches.  To keept that feminine feel to the design I added a white paper bow (TCP Die) that I ran through a polka-dot embossing folder.  It adds a nice touch of texture.  

The collection of Copics I used are below.  

And now, please also visit my Bloomie sisters Barbara and Broni for some more inspiration!
