TOMIC Challenge 1

Hello everyone and welcome to the very first challenge at The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge (TOMIC) we are all very excited to be here and we hope you will all join us for lots of fun. For this first week all of the DT are taking part, but for forthcoming weeks we will be split into teams as there are so many of us. This week we have a theme of Happy Birthday and Magnolia are sponsoring our challenges with a surprise package for the winner.

For my card I have used Bridesmaid Tilda from the Magnolia Wedding Collection 2010 and she has been coloured with copics and embellished with silver stickles. The lush DPs are from K & Co and they have quite a vintage feel. I planned my layout around the little bird in the bottom right hand corner so you could see him peeking through. I used an MS punch for the scalloped edge and the sentiment is from cats life press. To embellish my card I used some cream twill, pearls, twine and a charm

I finished off the inside of my card with the left over DPs from the front. I put them together in a patch work effect and used some zig zag stitches for the joins. I really love how this turned out.
