My Best Friends Birthday Card.

Hi all you lovely people. Saw a challenge over at Magnolia and thought I would kill two birds with one stone, make this for the challenge and as it's my friends birthday shortly and I am always too late to make her one and have to her one, yes that's right, I could hardly type it! How mad is that my husband says, how much stuff have you upstairs and how much did it cost, blah blah blah...  Well I am going to put this one under his nose till it's time to write and send it. Don't know what everyone else is like but when I know I have to make a card, my Ideas dry up, I'm much better just sitting down and working without pre planning!  Hope she likes it now.
   Hope you are all well out there in blog land.
    Hugs, Sue. x


Main image Magnolia Tilda, which I coloured with Pro-markers and Copics
I used Bazzill Basics and papers by MME pretty please spring papers
I then added lace, paper doily and then spellbinders beaded circle
I stamped a spellbiinders circle with Magnolia Leaf stamp in the background which I distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink.
The verse stamp is by LOTV as is the circular birthday sentiment
The love ticket is by Tim Holtz
Flowers are by WOC
Leaf punch ( not sure of make)
Pearls from stash.
