Orange Magnolia

 Thanks for popping by.  I made today's card using the colours at The Paper Players, the Foliage/Thanks/Sequins or Gems line at Tic Tac Toe and the Anything Goes challenge at Cupcake Inspirations challenge.

I hope these few leaves/budding leaves will qualify as foliage at Tic Tac Toe.  I stamped the magnolia using colours that most closely matched those at The Paper Players.  Once I was finished stamping, I die-cut with the co-ordinating die and also die-cut a plain black panel which I adhered slightly offset as a shadow.  I then adhered the image to a die-cut circle from patterned paper before adding to the white card base.

It's hard to tell from the photo, but the sentiment is a two-piece die-cut.  I cut both layers from black, adding 3 layers to the outline for added interest.  

Finally I finished with some bubble gems, which really do look like bubbles!

Thanks for visiting!
