Happy Birthday

Hello and a wonderful Wednesday :-) it is this day of the week again where we like to challenge you to pick up one of your stamps from a older Magnolia collection. This week Jaqueline picked "Tilda with balloons". I wanted to create a bright and cheerful girl birthday card. Well... my papers cooperated :-) but not the yucky daylight we still have here in Michigan.

This is a close up shot - i have tried to capture the sparkle that my new Shimmerz paints in Marigold and Pixie wings gave the balloon and the wings.
Stamps: Magnolia Tilda with balloons
Papers: i know i went a little crazy with all the layers :-) are Real Red, Marigold Morning (retiered) Stampin up, patterned paper: DCWV "Citrus Stack"
Embellishments: Martha Stewart Fond and Arched Lettice punch, Prima Marketing, Stampin up

Please take a look at my friends blogs if you have a extra minute, each of them has created a card using this Tilda image for you. If you like to join our challenge, feel free to use Carole's, Jaqueline's, Bea's or my blog to show and link your card creation.
