Heartfelt Wishes For A Happy Birthday


Hi friends! Isn't this Tilda image cute? I thought she was perfect for the three challenges I'm entering this card into.
Sketch Saturday - A sketch which you can see below
A Spoon Full Of Sugar - Happy Birthday theme
Simon Says - Things with wings

Image is Tilda blowing hearts by Magnolia. I colored her with Prismacolor colored pencils. Printed paper is by Basic Grey and N2N Designs. Flowers were made with Paper Shapers flower retro flower punch and Crystal Stickles were used on Tilda's wings.

Inside of card above and sketch used is shown below.

I also tried something new...at least new for me. I have been seeing on a lot of blogs where part of the image is sticking out past the actual cut part of the Nestabilities shape. I love the look of that technique and also found it to be so super easy to do. If you haven't tried it yet and would like to then check out the how to tutorial that Splitcoast Stampers has. You can find it HERE
Thanks for stopping by!

This is beautiful, I love how you did the heart, and the design paper is gorgeous. The inside looks as good as the out side.
