Sweet Tilda holding balloons

I made this birthday card for a dear friend who's going through a rough patch right now so I thought it would perk her up a bit. She's very special to me.

I used Magnolia's Tilda holding balloons as my focal image. This stamp can be found at Diana's shoppe "Magnolia-licious" HERE. I have fallen in love with these precious little girls.

I am also using this card to enter 2 challenges. The first one is at the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog. We were to follow this darling sketch made by Mina.

The second challenge is at Charisma Cardz Challenge Blog using Challenge #35 Swirls, Curlz & hearts (I hope my one heart still qualifies me).

Wish me luck & Happy Birthday to my dear sweet friend (I can't say who she is until after her birthday......giggles)!

Card Recipe:
DP – Prima Studio D “The First Blush”
Prima flowers
“Best Occasions” Rhinestone Swirls
Versa Magic Chalk Ink “Wheat”
Copics: R20, R22, E000, E00, E02, E31, E33, E41, W0, W1, W3, G85

Huggies & Blessings ~
