A Magical Birthday!

Hi Everyone! Yes, I'm back already! I can't remember the last time I posted a new project two days in a row! But, I received an exciting mystery package the other day from Magnolia and I couldn't wait to dig into it. I'm so out of the loop these days that I had no idea a winter kit from Magnolia was about to arrive in my mailbox. It was actually really nice not to expect it because the surprise was so WONDERFUL!

Since this image is from the winter kit and has not been released, I have no idea what the name of it is. I'm calling her 'Marching Tilda' because she looks like she's in a parade! If you haven't signed up for the kits, then this is a special little sneeky peek for you. The stamps are just adorable! No surprise there!!!

Here's my card. I hope you like it :-)

A Magical Birthday  

As I was going through my papers trying to pick some that felt right with this image, I came across this paper that reminded me of my friend Mindy - because of the pink and brown. She loves to work with pink, white and brown and does such beautiful things with it. So, I thought I'd give it a try. It's still quite a bit darker than Mindy would do, but I guess that's just my spin on it. My son looked at it on my craft table and said "it's just beautiful Momma". What a sweetie!

The dp's are from BG's 'Eva' collection and cs is Bazzill. The pearls are by Zva Creative, and to be honest with you, I have no idea whether they're light pink or white. I think the gorgeous striped ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Flowers are from Mindy and Wild Orchid Crafts. I've been using these circular sentiments from Lili of the Valley a lot lately. I just love them! I bought two sets, including a Christmas set, and I keep them on my craft table and reach for them all the time. Lastly, Tilda's crown got a thick coat of diamond Stickles for an added shimmer of gold.

This little cutie was colored with a combo of Copic markers and watercolors with DI's. Here's the details:

Copics - E000, 00, 02, 41, 42, 43, 44, R20, RV21, Y21, YR23, N1, 3

DI's - black soot, dusty concord, spun sugar, worn lipstick

Well, that's it for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you are all nearly ready for the holidays and will find some time to simply sit and relax a bit.
