Summer Wedding Tilda Sings Happy Birthday Instead!

Good morning, dear readers,

It's Tuesday and time for another challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! Today's challenge is called, "Pretty in Pink!" I didn't used to like pink until I found that I look really good in Baby Pink! Slowly, gradually, I started getting pink things. Now, I'm sold! Before I go any further (and forget), I want to announce who won a little somethin' somethin' from me! So, without further adieu ... **drumroll please** the winner is:

#7 - Caryl (aka EnblogSail)

Caryl, please use the e-mail address on the right and send me your address. Congratulations!

Thanks to each of you for leaving sweet comments for me. I wish I could send each of you something. I love reading your comments. They help keep me motivated! Don't forget to leave a comment below so your name will go into the next drawing for me as well as Diana at Magnolia-licious!

Speaking of Magnolia-licious, don't miss out on the current offer Diana has going. Order any item (stamp or die) that has the word "HEART" in the name and receive a 15% EXTRA discount in store credit. This sale ends on February 14. Also, new Wild Rose Studio Stamps are 30% off this week only! How can you pass either of these sales going?

Now for my card. Here it is:

If you don't have this Tilda stamp, do add her to your collection. She is so easy to color. I really stink at coloring hair and look how nicely this turned out? LOL, LOL, LOL! It was really easy to determine the highlight and lowlight areas. I colored her with water colors. I used a Go Kreate Die, lace I had in my supplies, gorgeous pink ribbon I got from Magnolia-licious, Spellbinders dies, an antique gold charm, a wooden spool, a tiny gem flower, and other flowers from my supplies. The papers are Sofiero (my very, VERY favorite) which I got HERE. The inside of my card is also finished with flowers and matching papers. It really turned out to be an adorable card!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you liked the card I created to inspire you. Do visit the blogs of my Design Team "Sistahs" as they have gorgeous creations which will surely stir up your creative juices!

I can't wait to see your entries in our "Pretty in Pink" Challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day! I'll be back on Wednesday to show you the card I made for my DH!
