Another Magnolia B'day Card

 I have another b'day card to share with you tonight...a super cute Tilda and her puppy on a pile of books.  This is for my cousin Karen.  She is an animal lover and cares deeply about the environment.  She studied Environmental Science and I'm not exactly sure what she is up to now, but I know she is working in a foreign country doing research on a community I think...that is very vague isnt it! Anyway, I thought these images would be perfect for her.  She is currently home in Australia this weekend and so am sending this to her parent's address in the hope that it will reach her before she goes back on another adventure!

I actually love this DP but have no idea who made it or what it is called but it goes perfectly with my new fave colour combo Choc Chip, Barely Banana and Regal Rose.  There is also a strip of pink SU DP in there as well and a panel of this furry cream paper.  I added some lace and mesh and ribbon from my stash with a SU sentiment that I love from the Whimsical Words set.  I punched out the little pink heart and covered it in Kindy Glitz.
I would like to join in with the following challenges:
Stamp With Us - Birthdays
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes

Also a bit of exciting news....I received my copics today! Have been playing with them already of course! (Not on this card though...I made this yesterday).  The colours are so delicious and the tips so soft and blendable...lots of fun in store for me I think!

Hope your day was filled with sunshine : )

Thanks for visiting,

SWEET, I love how the heart is repeated. In the verse, the punched heart, the knee patch and the lovely pink ribbon. Have lots of fun with your new markers. Hugs...

The different textures on this are gorgeous, I'm sure she'll love it - if she gets it!!
Can't wait to see your copic colouring... you'll be pining for them when you're in Japan!! Have a great time at the wedding, just telling you now in case you don't post again before you go!! ♥
