Magnolia-licious Highlites Pretty in Pink Contest

Hello blogland. I've been wanting to post this card I made a few days ago for the contest over at Magnolia-licious Highlites blog. This is my second Magnolia card (well the first one I don't count) and I have to say that I really need alot of work on the flesh tones. I had seen someone else post a card doing a piecing and I really wanted to try that. So this is what I came up with. I also wanted to use this darling stamp but didn't want to make it into a Christmas card. So how did I do? The photo has kind of a tint to it. It's really crisp white in real life ... Well this is all I have for today. I do have a few more cards to post but I will do that tomorrow. I hope everyone has a wonderful day....hugs from Charm City....
