Hello everyone, last Monday saw the launch of the new TOMIC challenge blog and we have a very easy theme of Happy Birthday to get the ball rolling. This is the DT card I made for the challenge and on Monday I showed it on my Solo Magnolia blog, but I have popped it on my main blog today where all of my cards go.
For my card I have used Bridesmaid Tilda from the Magnolia Wedding Collection 2010 and she has been coloured with copics and embellished with silver stickles. The lush DPs are from K & Co and they have quite a vintage feel. I planned my layout around the little bird in the bottom right hand corner so you could see him peeking through. I used an MS punch for the scalloped edge and the sentiment is from cats life press. To embellish my card I used some cream twill, pearls, twine and a charm
I finished off the inside of my card with the left over DPs from the front. I put them together in a patch work effect and used some zig zag stitches for the joins. I really love how this turned out.
