Barbara has such a lovely color combination and I knew right away that I wanted to use it with this beautiful magnolia. It is a large stamp so I designed the card to be 5"x7" in order to get all of the elements I wanted into it, including the background on the card base which is just the main images stamped in black. As I mentioned below I used Light Pumpkin Pie + Light Mango Melody + Light Petal Pink to approximate Peekaboo Peach for the center of the Magnolia. Other colors were Calypso Coral and Old Olive. This Peekaboo Peach ribbon is the only thing I had left in that color. Since it was a little wide (I was casing a card that I had used Baker's Twine on) I folded it when I wrapped it around the upper right corner. Seam Binding is definitely my favorite ribbon to use on cards. Having the magnolia die cut (dessert) allowed me to have it overlap over the background images.
This is such a fun combination. I hope you can gather up some similar colors and join us!

Chris, this card is stunning! The central flower is so beautifully colored with a perfect blending of the challenge colors. And that background! What a brilliant idea to use the outline repeatedly to create your own perfectly matching DS paper! Welcome to the team--we are so lucky to have you with us!
