A Birthday Card

Here is a birthday card that I made using this adorable Magnolia stamp called Tilda With Eggs In Her Apron. This is the first time that I have used this stamp. But I was trying to figure out how to use it but not make an Easter card. So it finally hit me to take these little paper flowers and add them to the image to cover the eggs. So instead of holding eggs Tilda is holding flowers. Perfect solution. I added white pearls to the center of the flowers. (Sorry they don't look white in this picture. My photo came out a little darker in this photo than it actually is in real life.)

I made this card for the following challenges:

Magnolia Down Under: Flowers

Ooh La La: Blog Inspiration (thier blog is gorgeous by the way!!)

One Stitch At A Time: Use Something New (Stamp)

Sweet Sunday Sketch: Sketch

Aimee's Challenge: Something For A Girl
