Just Magnolia DT - Dawny's sketch for my birthday!

Yippee!!! It's my birthday today!! Happy Birthday to me....Happy Birthday to me.....etc!!!! This is a scheduled post and hopefully I'm not even out of bed yet as hubby is off and I hope giving me a nice long birthday lie in before I wake to lots of cards and pressies LOL!!
We have another gorgeous sketch by Dawny this week at Just Magnolia Challenge. Thanks for the sketch hun, I loved working with it! I have used the most gorgeous paper by Prima called Whimsy from their Watercolour Rainbow collection. Think I'll have to get some more, it broke my heart cutting it LOL!
I have used the gorgeous sitting Tilda from the Bon Voyage collection and coloured her with copics. I don't know why but I always struggle to match pinks up to papers when I colour with my copics, think I'll have to invest in some sketch markers to fill in the colour gaps in the ciaos LOL! After 4 different attempts at her pink dungarees I gave in and paper pieced them instead LOL! Behind Tilda I have used one of Whiff of Joy's new dies - the Magical Tag. I've cut it twice so create fancy ends either side of Tilda. I also added eyelets to the holes.
The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment was stamped with Victorian Velvet distress ink and is also from Whiff of Joy's 1001 nights kit.

I added two sprays of flowers consisting of some gorgeous Prima flowers together with pink roses from The Hobby House and blue blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts, all sprayed with glimmer mist. The leaves were punched with a Woodware punch.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Just Magnolia. The rest of my teamies have created some gorgeous eye candy as usual - pop over and have a look! Thanks for looking! x
