Just Magnolia challenge card

I finally got round to making a card today for the Just Magnolia challenge.
Last week was a fab sketch and I used green and pink as my colours and guess what, it's a colour challenge this week and the colours are green and pink. So I had to go looking through all my papers for something green and pink or else I would of had to use the same papers I used last week!
I finally found a K&Co mat stack and some scraps of K&Co glittered paper I used on some cards a while ago.

I coloured the gorgeous image which I got from Bev with my usual copics. All the papers as I said are K&Co, flowers I cut by hand from scraps and added some spacers from Holburn Crafts and Kanban pearls. Lace is from a local haberdashery.
I am planning on making a few cards for friends today as RAK's so I might join in with some challenges at the same time. But before that I am off bloghopping to see what all you lot have been up too as I haven't had much time to visit blogs this week.
Oh before I go I know that a lot of you ladies have the Retro Flowers Punches. Could someone tell me where I can buy some or any other nice flower punches that I could layer up? I am tired of handcutting flowers as I always cut them wonky lol.
Right I'm off. Don't forget to check back over the next few days for a surprise giveaway. I have decided that although I said I would choose one of my followers, I am going to pick a winner from my followers list who has also left me a comment/comments last week and this week (not on my blog candy post) up to when I choose a winner. I think this is fair to my followers that do visit my blog as I know people sign up to be a follower when there is a giveaway but don't visit again after that. So this way I can be sure that the prize goes to someone who does actually read my blog.
I know that a lot of people have joined as followers when I had my candy running and I just want to make it clear that it doesn't matter how long you have been a follower for, as long as you leave me a comment and come back now and again to visit me :) I am so happy that I have met a lot of new bloggy friends since my candy and I hope that a lot of you will continue to come back and see me.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I love your hand-cut flowers. Stamping Up has a great die (like what I used on my brown & blue butterfly card) but, there are tons of punches out there!

I'm a devoted follower and love your creativity.

Shhhh, don't tell anyone, but we're friends too!
