My First Mingle Card

OK this is a first for me.  I have colored many, many "Magnolia" stamps, but I have never completed one into a card.  This is especially a thrill for me now, as it is also my very first Mingle Card with the Magnolia-licious group.  So I hope that my mingle "partner" is pleased with the finished project.  It was also my very first time using flowers from Wild Orchid and can I tell you how in love I am with their flowers.  The company is very reasonable in pricing, shipping, and the flowers are the best in quality.  I tried to add a lot of emblishing but I did not have all my "tools" of the trade with me when I was completing the card.  My next mingle card will have even more.  I had several of my spellbinders nesties and my cuddlebug embossing folders I wanted to use, but I'm sure I'll be doing more cards as we go along.  This is also another milestone for me on my is my very first post with a "craft" item.  I started this blog with the intention of doing cards, etc., but life got in the way and I had to make a lot of changes in it.  You can tell by my journey all that has been happening to me.  I intend to continue to update my journey and I am way behind right now.  I will try to keep the crafts and the journey separate as soon as I can figure out what to do.  LOL  So enjoy my card.  Also next time I will do a better job of keeping track with what Copic markers, etc., that I used.  I also hope to get a photo box to take pictures in, as my picture here really did not do justice to the card.
