Sweet Birthday Wishes

Wow, two posts in one day. This is a record for me.
As you can probably tell, I have been having a happy weekend crafting. Yesterday I stamped and coloured a bunch of images and today I am putting together cards that I will share with you this week. Over on the  
Just Magnolia/Hanglar Stanglar challenge blog there is a DT call going on and I wanted to get this in. 

I have created this card with a few challenges in mind. The image is Tilda with Wedding Gifts which is available in the Magnolia Licious store. I have masked her with the large cupcake and coloured with Copics (big surprise there).

This card is a large one for me, measuring 6 inches which I felt was warranted as my image is rather large. I have followed the great sketch created by Domi for the Simon Say Stamp challenge. I had to take a few liberties with it moving the sentiment and adding an extra band across the bottom of the card as I felt that there was too much white space as a result of the size and shape of my image.

The papers are from the Memory Box Brioche collection.  I am going to have to locate another package of this paper as it is perfect for so many images and going fast. I have used a Martha Stewart punch to create the lacy band and the swirl is a Magnolia die. The flowers are a combination of Wild Orchid and my stash and the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping in for a visit. Be sure to come back tomorrow as I have another card to share.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
