Magnolia Birthday card & Top 3 at B'nW challenge

Happy 4th of July!!

Great news, I made Top 3 over at Belles 'n Whistles challenge blog with my card Bonne Fête, sooo.... happy.

For my card today, I used the sketch over at Magnolia Down Under challenge this week, it's perfect for a birthday card. I have a lot going on with this card.

I used Secret Tilda with the small balloon stamp which I purchased
at I Brake for Stamps. I applied clear transparency Glitter Ritz over the balloons, keeps the colors and adds glitter, love it.



My small flowers and stems are created using Prima December Narcissus 3/4" flowers then I added lots of glamour dust.



I added Glossy accents to my banners and Stardust stickles to the bow on the gift. Papers are from Graphic 45 Botanicabella "Secret Garden", K&C "Watercolor Bouquet" (12 x 12 paper pad) and Kraft paper. I used my Zutter distrezz-it-all on my papers, so quick and easy.

Copics
Body: E000, 00, 21, R20
Hair: E44, 42, 53
Pants: E43, 42, 41, 40
Blouse, socks, headband: BV0000, 000, 02
Gift: E40, blender
Balloons: Y13, G24, YG03, Bv000, blender
