Best Wishes...

I created this birthday card using Longing Tilda from Magnolia Stamps. 

Best Wishes pinkbrownwhite

I started with a brown card base. I added a piece of pink card stock cut just a little smaller than the base and backed in white.  I added a piece of pink plaid card stock backed in brown card stock down the side of the card and a smaller piece to the opposite top corner.  I punched a piece of white card stock using an eyelet lace border punch.  I added a piece of brown and pink dotted ribbon and added it across the card.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma color pencils.  Then I cut it out in a circle, backed it in brown and cut around it with scallop scissors.  I added 3 satin flowers (2 white and 1 pink) under the image.  I added a metal embossed heart to the top corner and 3 white pearl hearts to the opposite top corner. I stamped the sentiment "best wishes" directly onto the bottom corner.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
