XOXO Happy Birthday

Where do i start with this card :-)?
Well first let me tell you where the inspiration for it came from. My dear friend Inge had sent me this wonderful Christmas card. I totally love MY card :-). Well.. there is nothing Inge makes that i do not just dool over. She is just simply my cardmaking hero and because of her i discovered the cute Magnolia stamps anyways.
I think like most of you i have ordered "Tilda with Christmas presents" because it is one of the Christmas stamps you can use all year round. I used some of the wonderful papers from the Magnolia "Christmas Collection" and "Yummy for your Tummy Collection" which are neutral, soft and dreamy. Many Magnolia papers and even the Magnolia ink magazine can be ordered over at Magnolia-liocus!

For the coloring i used (V1 and V0000 with some dots of V06 quickly blended with V0000, Basket is colored with E31, E34 and E50, E71 and E74, Greens are YG 93, YG0000, G99, Hair: E50, Y21 and E31, Face: E11, E00, E000, R20, Halo of image is done with RV0000, Ground W colors)

The card was made for Rachels Birthday and i tell you girls.. when i colored her in i was super nervous. I had made for her prior a birthday card and was actually worried to sent it to her lol hope she will like it.
Whoohooo i just received an email from Dawn that she has chosen some of my cards to be featured over on the Inspirational blog. What an honor. Thank you so very much!

All those very cute Magnolia stamps you see in my artwork can be purchased in Sweden - link is in blog roll!
