Just Magnolia challenge No 2

The challenge over at Just Magnolia this week is to make a card using pink and green. I was in the middle of making this for my Niece's birthday so it spurred me on to finish it! I must be a mind reader as I was using pink and green LOL!!! I have stamped the New Year swirl stamp from Magnolia behind Tilda, it was my first go at masking and overstamping. I love the swirl stamp sooooo much, I think I use it on nearly every card in one way or another! Inside I have made a pocket as we always give her money for her birthday. Thank you so much to Rachel Jakes for the inspiration for this, I love her blog and saw the pocket idea on there. The heart on the inside ribbon happened kind of by accident, which I find happens a lot and ends up being better than my original idea LOL! I was going to do a bow to match the front and thought I'd run out of ribbon so cut a heart out of the paper instead........when I cleared my table I found a piece of the ribbon that would have made the bow LOL....must be tidier...but I think it works with the heart anyway. I made dots on her dress with the copic colourless blender so that it matches the spotty paper.

The inside

There is a money pocket behind Tilda!

and her dotty dress. I also made an envelope to match.
