A Shaped Magnolia Card

Evening everyone I hope you are all well and having a good week.Today I decided to make a simple shaped card and to have a practice at darker coloured skin and i think this magnolia image is perfect for this.
I have coloured her with promarkers and added stickles to the flower, gift and the collar on her dress.The shaped card is from Die cut dreams but you could easily use spellbinders label 7 for this style too.
The greeting is from an inkadinkadoo set which i have stamped onto a circle die and matted onto a scallopped circle die.Glitter was then added to the inner circle around the edge.To finish off i have added some purple rhinestones.
I hope you like it.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

I like the way those colours work with one another & how they 'pop' against her skin. I'm so glad about your scanner - looks like you've got a good one for the definition is lovely.
