Happy Birthday to You - Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps Challenge #2

'All About Boys' is the theme for Challenge #2 at the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog.  Yes, it's time for new one!  Hope you'll come and play with us.  For more details on how to join in the fun, hop over to the challenge blog and while you're there, be inspired by the fabulous cards of my DT Teammates. 

Here's the card that I've created for the challenge.  


As you can see below, this is actually a window card...and you can see part of the scenery in the back through the window.

 
The inside of the card looks like this.  I've added a blank panel to write a personal note on.
 


These are the Magnolia stamps that I used to create the scenes:

 
- Cool Edwin from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011
- Fairytale Summer Background from the Fairytale Collection 2010 (this is actually only half of the actually background image.  I have cut out the rainbow and sky to create the window effect.  If you click on the stamp name above you can see the original image.)
 

- Edwin With Bike from the Lazy Summer Days Collection 2009
- Bird Background from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011

Magnolia stamps--a vast selection of both full-size and mini stamps--are available at Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store. If you don't see the particular one you are looking for in the store, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you.
And newly available at Magnolia-licious are those wonderful Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet.
Have a look also at the selections of cutting dies also from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design, Cheery Lynn Designs and Joy! Crafts.
Diana offers discounted prices, gives excellent service and you get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase! Sweet!!
