Combined: Just Magnolia & Stamping for the Weekend

Seit langem mal wieder eine Karte *g*. Die war eigentlich vorgestern schon so weit fertig, aber mir hat auf der linken Seite noch was gefehlt und ich hab recht lange hin und her überlegt, was ich da noch hinpacke.
Diese Karte ist eine Kombination, der Sketch von "Just Magnolia" und das Farbthema "Strawberies Dipped in Chocolate" oder auch rot/braun von "Stampin' for the Weekend". Ich dachte mir, da ich ja schon die tollen neuen Magnoliamotive habe, nehme ich das Motto auch gleich halbwegs wörtlich ;o)
Alles in allem kann ich nach dieser Karte sagen, daß rot/braun nie eine Lieblingskombi von mir werden wird (dafür kombiniere ich Rot zu gerne mit Schwarz und Braun zu gerne mit Pink und Türkis ;o)), aber nach einigen verzweifelten Momenten wurde sie doch noch wenigstens halbwegs annehmbar. Hoffe ich.

Finally a card, the first one for ages *g*. Actually this one was already finished the day before yesterday, but I couldn't shake the feeling that something was missing on the left side and I spent the last two days contemplating what I would add to it.
This card is a combined entry for "Just Magnolia", from where I got the sketch and for "Stampin' for the Weekend" who gave a theme. "Strawberries Dipped in Chocolate" aka red/brown. And because I already have some of the new, supercute summer Magnolias I decided to take the theme slightly literally ;o)
After making this card I can tell you with confidence that red/brown will never became a favourite combination of mine (I like my red/black and pink/brown, turquoise/brown just to much for that) and even though I started to doubt myself while making this card I think it turned out okay in the end. I hope...
