I was so glad Fran mentioned magnolias would work - I went rather Mardi Gras last week, and while I love me my tabasco, I don't think I have anything southern cooking style in my stamps.
Core-dinations base embossed, sanded, edges sponged with Victorian Velvet.
PSX image stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with distress inks, edges sponged with Bundled Sage. I added some gold ribbon and pearls.

Full of southern beauty and charm. Magnolias are so pretty...so neat how they bloom.. love the elegant pearly frame for this and that soft red you sponged with...a really pretty color, might have to look it up...looks like it would be a lovely Christmassy color too....A lovely flower for Heidi...TFS..:0)

What a gorgeous image that is, and how beautiful it looks with the pink and gold. The blossoms of the magnolia have always intrigued me, with their shape and the little stamens in yellow. It's too bad that they don't last too long. I always see them covering the ground!
