You can use ANY Magenta product for your entry.  I used a couple of the newest stamps for my very clean and simple card:

Magenta Stamps used:
42.208.N  Poppies
07.875.F  Always

Other Products used:
Tombow markers:  899; 847; 835; 098; 491
Glossy Accents
Clear Wink of Stella
Hero Arts Blush Mixed Accents
Onyx Black Versafine Ink
Judikins Detail Clear Embossing Powder
Watercolor paper
So Silk Beauty Pink paper

The poppy image was stamped onto watercolor paper (Strathmore cold press 140#) with black Versafine and embossed with Detail Clear embossing powder.  I colored the flower with Tombow markers, and used a wet brush to move the color around until I was happy with the shading and the look.  Glossy Accents was applied to the center of the largest flower for a little shine, and clear Wink of Stella was applied to all of the flower petals for some sparkle.  The sentiment was stamped with black Versafine.  Image was mounted onto So Silk Beauty Pink for matting, and then mounted onto a white base card.  Hero Arts Blush Mixed Accents were applied for a finishing touch.
