In The Pink for my Birthday

This week at Die cut Dreams challenge blog the theme is "Tilda in pink " I chose the theme for my birthday and I made this card with me in mind as I just love Tilda and I think you know by now I love pink soooo much !!
This is one of the new Magnolia Tilda stamps (Isn't she so pretty in pink) and I have stamped her on my new designer die cuts which are now available in my shop Die cut Dreams.
I coloured Tilda with Copic markers and instead of using any designer papers I stamped using an old WoJ flourish and swirls stamp to creat my own dp and the base card is distressed textured card.
Flowers, ribbon and gems from my stash and the sentiment stamp is from SU.
