Birthday Tilda

I've had a lot of fun making this Tilda card using one of the new Magnolia "You're So Special" stamps.  (As always, click on the image to enlarge)

 This stamp is "Tilda with Gift".  I thought that she needed a cute balloon and some cupcakes which I cut out of the paper that I used behind the main image.  

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday:

This card qualifies for the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Birthday
Wild Orchid Challenge -  "dieing to punch it out"= die cuts and/or punching on your projects
ASC - anything goes
Make it Monday - anything goes
Just Magnolia - your favorite color combo - mine is pink and yellow (just like my daughter's)
Flourishes - a cut above the rest =use a die cut, a border punch, a corner punch or any type of decorative border!

Hi Nancy and thank you for your visit to my blog earlier, it's great to find yours and your cards are gorgeous! Love this sweet Tilda and your colouring and design, it's such a lovely happy card. You asked about which distress inks I use for Tilda's skin and mostly I use a mixture of antique linen and tattered rose with a little vintage photo for shadows. Have a great weekend. Chris :)
