Custom Magnolia Card

This was a custom ordered card, and I'm really
happy with the way it turned out!
This was the first time I've used Cryogen White cardstock from the Paper Temptress. It has an iridescent sheen to it which is really nice, but I'm not sure it's the best for blending. I'll have to play with it more. (Click to enlarge to see for yourself!)
Side View
You can't really tell from the photos, but I used a shimmer mist on the roses.

I stamped and punched out a tiny tag for the sentiment. This stamp did have a tag on it, but it was too tiny to write anything inside it, so I covered it up with a larger one.

Recipe:
Stamps: #349 Tilda w/ roses, SU Tiny Tags
Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Pear Pizzazz DSP, Cryogen White, Real Red, Garden Green
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: paper roses, MS branch punch, mini glue dots, shimmer mist, lacey oval nestie, oval nestie, silver corner stickets, jewelry punch, SU brad, Copics, 1/8" white ribbon
