Card Chain Challenge for February 2018

From the new Hero Arts release for the spring is this Flowering Magnolia and the more I stamp it, the more I like it.  I purchased the matching die and I love being able to just quickly cutting it.  I think if you wanted to fussy cut the flower, you could cut it first and then have less paper to handle while manually cutting it out. 

I took the background colors (this is card stock, not any sponging I did) and worked them into the flower.  I don't think any real magnolia comes in this color, but I'll plead artistic license.   I hope my partner is pleased with this.  I think this would be a good design using this flower for creating a set of cards for someone.
