Happy Birthday for The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge

Woohoo!! I am ahead with all my DT commitments, thank goodness, as I really wanted to make sure I took part in the first ever challenge at The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge!! This is the card I have made especially for the challenge which this week is Birthdays to celebrate Magnolia's founder, Pauline's birthday! I really enjoyed making this card as it was just for me with no restrictions and I really needed a relaxing evening last night!! The papers I have used are the new mini Sweet Rainbow papers and I've added touches of pickett fence crackle paint to them here and there.
I masked the ever so gorgeous Sweet Tilda with the Sweet Rainbow background and then coloured my heart out with copics :). I love how it turned out!
I added lots of gorgeous flowers from my stash, a beautiful Athena blossom from Prima and the rest by Wild Orchid Crafts. They've all been given a spritz of pearl glimmer mist. I had to use my heart swirl doohickey too - just love this die!! The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and I added a touch of stickles to the cakes. The gorgeous aida flower is from Prima, again with some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.
I added a double bow of beautiful pink chiffon ribbon and topped it with a butterfly punched with Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly punch.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
