Birthday Wishes

I’m back today to share my latest creation for Midweek Magnolia. Our new challenge is… 

‘Shabby Chic or Vintage’. 

I’ve made this pretty card today using ‘Tilda with Rose Lace Dress' from Magnolia’s ‘Pink Lemonade’ Collection. 



My image has been stamped onto Cryogen White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I have coloured my image with Copic Markers in the following colours:

Hair & Shoes – W5, W3, W1, W00
Dress & Hat Ribbon – RV95, RV93, RV91

Here’s a close up of my image. 


I have sponges all the edges of my paper and cardstock, added some frantage to my image layer and sponged my die cut pieces. My paper is from the 'Vintage Autumn Basics' from Maja Designs. Some pretty lace, seam binding, flowers & pearls complete my card.
