Butterfly Birthday Card

Hello.  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  

I've finished a birthday card.  This is a new favorite colour combo of mine of orange, teal and brown.   



This adorable Tilda that I've featured on the card front is called Tilda With Straw Hat.  She is from the  Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011.  You can hop over to Magnolia-licious, Diana's online store, to check out this Tilda and more adorable Magnolia images, both full-size and minis. Have a look also at the selection of wonderful dies--Memory Box, Poppy Stamp, Marianne Design and Magnolia Doohickey.     



Here's a view of the inside of my card.  I've put a butterfly verse from a JustRite stamp set.  I've added another adorable sitting Tilda here.  This one is called Tilda With Ponytail from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011.   



A few challenges that I would like to enter with this card:
