A Special Day

Hello!
Finally I have a card to show you. This is a birthday card.



This Tilda is from Magnolia's Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012. She is called Tilda with Heart Balloons (I think). I get all my wonderful Magnolia products from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store, although it looks like currently this Tilda is out of stock (I'm sure Diana will restock soon though).


I've made this into an easel card. A couple of views from different angles here...



Oh do you like my flowers? I've just got my shipment of gorgeous flower dies from Annelies at Crealies, all the way from the Netherlands. I couldn't wait to play with them...LOL. This is just one of their Creative Flower dies, CLCF 19.

For the bottom panel, I've coloured a couple of mini Magnolia images. I am still trying to find out the names of the Tildas--will edit when I find them...LOL.



A few challenges that I am entering with this card:
Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge #94 - sketch
Deep Ocean Challenge #19 - Pink and Brown
Aud Sentiments Challenge #48 - Happy
CES Challenge #73 - Spots and Dots
Simon Says Stamps Challenge - Use 3 Different Papers
Addicted to Stamps Challenge #24 - Birthday Cards with Dots


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by. I do appreciate your visit. Thank you also for your encouraging comments. I do enjoy reading them. Enjoy your week!



Materials and Tools Used:

DP's: American Crafts Baby Miss Muffett; Hot Off the Press Paper Pizzazz Jacie's Vintage Papers

Dies: Spellbinders Labels Five; Crealis Creative Flowers 19; CC Design Leaf Bunch
