Debut DT creation for Simply Magnolia

Hello,
There was a time when I didn't think I would ever be on another design team and here I am showing you my first card as a DT member for
 I was blown away when Tracy emailed me to say I'd made the team, I thought I was just guest designing for them, hadn't checked the challenge blog for any announcements, so it came like a bolt out of the blue! I have a lot to thank Tracy and the design team for, as I now find myself on not one but two Magnolia Design Teams, this news coming soon after being fortunate enough to make the Marvelous Magnolia DT!
Well, lets get down to the important business of showing my card.....
The theme is nice and easy:
Birthday Wishes and add a Birthday Sentiment
and we all have a reason to make plenty of those!


Dies used are: Go Kreate shaped card die, spellbinders circle and lacey circle, DooHickeys: scalloped tag, scalloped stictched lace border
Sentiment on Tilda's board is SU and the Time to celebrate stamp is by LOTV.


Write a Message Tilda was a delight to colour as always, using DI's. I finished the image off with Frantage and a white bead string.


The detail to the top right corner with lace under the ripped section and wrapped over the top of the paper in the corner, finished with a pale pink flower button. The reason for the ripped paper is so I had an excuse to add the zipper (I just love these!)



All the flowers are WOC and I couldn't go without adding an arty shot of the finished card! At the time of taking the photo I hadn't decided whether to sell the card or give it to someone special so I hadn't filled in the Month and Date on the stamp but I have since decided to give it to my daughter next month who will be six and adores Tilda as much as me!

We are lucky enough to be sponsored by the awesome:


Thanks for visiting me today it really means a lot, I hope you have had time to pop over to see what amazing inspiration my new teamies have for you on the main challenge blog, and I will see you on Thursday with my next creation for Marvelous Magnolia.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, if this goes to plan as a scheduled post I will be at Birmingham NEC today at Crufts dog show :)
Hugs,
