Magnolia Down Under Challenge #60

Goodmorning Magnolia fans - I have a card to share for the new challenge over at Magnolia Down Under.
Today we have a colour challenge:  BLUE, GREEN, BROWN, PINK & ORANGE.
I had lots of fun making my card with these colours.
Here's my creation:

I've used Long Tilda as my Magnolia Stamp and I've used pastel shades of all these colours - I found this easier to work with!
To evenly incorporate all the colours, I've trimmed squares of cardstock to create the background.  I've also added some background stamping to these to create some texture. 
Tilda has been stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and coloured with Copics!  I've used my circle trimmers to create the circles, then matted onto a paper lace doily.
I've arrange roses, leaves and chandelier garlands to make it look pretty.
And lastly I've added a sentiment from the stamp set Summer Sentiments by Amy Rysavy.
Here's a closer look:

If you would love to join in with these fun challenges, head over to the Magnolia Down Under Challenge blog to view all the details.  Be sure to check out all the amazing creations from the Design Team too. 
Have a beautiful day.
