Tilda's Easter Birthday


Morning all, hope you are all having a fab day the sun is shinning and although its still chilly its a lovely day down here on the south coast of Britain.
I got my new Magnolia Easter stamps the other day (Bit later but worth the wait) isn't Tilda lovely...... I swear she gets cuter each time Magnolia release a new set and she never loses her sparkle.
Here I have made an Easter theme Birthday card, again today not my normal colour combo but I have been experimenting with different colours this week as I fancied a change from pink pink pink !! he he .
I coloured Tilda with Copic markers and roughed up her edges with the Tim Holtz Distress tool.
The blue and the yellow Textured card stock is from Stampin' up I have become addicted to using this in my cards now its a little more expensive than normal card but worth every penny.
The embossed polka dot DP is MME Wild asparagus and I have zig-zag stitched the edge to give detail.
The Happy Birthday stamp is from Stampin'up and I finished off by adding 2 coordinating WeR Memory Keepers Snaps with the Big bite tool.
I followed the great sketch over at Just Magnolia challenge its by Bev and its a sketch I will be using again & again, its simple and clean and I didn't even feel the need to add flowers or any embellishments.
I have also entered this into all these other challenges too;
