Happy Birthday

Happy Sunday,

It is a beautiful sunny day here but very chilly! I heard a horrible rumor that it was going to snow on Tuesday. Not lovin' that rumor. But on the bright side I am Florida bound on Friday. I haven't posted a Magnolia card in almost three weeks. It made me sad so I had to create one today. If I am lucky I will finish two. We will see. So without further ado; here is my birthday card.

I don't usually use bright colors but this paper was screaming; use me...LOL! Today I used Tilda with Dot Bow. I colored her with Copic Markers and for her polka dots I used Liquid Pearls.  The heart she is lying on is from Memory Box "Precious Heart Box". I filled the heart with yellow tissue paper and embellished it with heart stick pins. The paper is from Simple Stories "Happy Day". I did a lot of fussy cutting - the banner then I added the letters to spell Tilda, the sign "to you" and Tilda. To complete the card I used some netting, ribbon and bling. I hope I have inspired you today.

I am entering this card in the following challenges;
Midweek Magnolias - Week #52 Happy Birthday to Us
Tilda's Town - #44 Anything Goes
You and Me Magnolia - #9 Happy Birthday
