Birthday Card - Everything Wonderful


I'm working on a whole bunch of Christmas cards, but I can't show them yet because I want them to be received by the recipients first before I post them here.  Some of them are finished and some of them still have more work to be done on, but they all have to be mailed out...LOL.

In the meantime, I have this card that I forgot to post.  It was a birthday card that I made for a very dear blogging friend of mine.  I was waiting for her to receive it before I posted it, and then I completely forgot about it...yikes!  Losing some little grey cells here! haa haa...

Anyway here's the card...

I love this colour combo of pink and green--it's one of my faves.  I am featuring one of my favorite Tilda's also--this one is called Tilda with Flower Pot.  She is from Magnolia's Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011.  She was coloured with my Letraset Promarker and Pantone Tria markers.

The stamp for this adorable image is available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.
Other stamps, both full-size and mini, are also available from Magnolia-licious. If you don't see the stamp that you want there, just ask Diana and maybe she can bring it in for you.
Not to be missed are the variety of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn Designs.
Diana provides excellent services, discounted prices and you also earn in-store credit for every order.

I've made this into an easel card.

She is a lucky birthday girl!! I agree the pink and green are gorgeous together and so is the background that Tilda is on. It looks like broken pieces of a glass or mosaic in white. I love the card shape too. Very beautiful.

Chris said...

Oh, this is perfection with paper! You've colored Tilda perfectly! I so wish I could shade the folds so well. I look at what you do and just marvel at the skill and your artistic eye. It is a gorgeous card, Norma!

Phenominal card, Norma. I love the shapes you use for your cards. Your Tilda is adorable and beautifully collored as always. This one is so special with it being an easel card and lovely flowers you made.
