Summery Tilda with Flower Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone hope you're all well!

I've gone and bought some new Magnolia Stamps this week! (Even though I'm beyond broke right now!!) lol and I've made a summery Birthday card with my first newbie:





I paper pieced her bow and dress (even the fiddly shoulder and sleeve!) from the yellow patterned paper and done a bit of experimenting with swirly stamps in the corners of the yellow paper.

I was a bit nervous to stamp onto the patterned paper incase it didn't look right but I used brown ink which matched perfectly, black seemed a bit dark for this card. I also stamped a few little butterflies I found in my stash and inked around the edge of the image.

I drew and cut out the cloud by hand and mounted on 1mm foam pads



I used:

Indigo Blu Quintessentially English Stamps
Wee stamps (mouse)
Promarkers

Dovecraft Garden Party Papers
Ranger Liquid Pearls
Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch
WOC yellow 15mm roses
Ribbon, white flowers, corner punch and sentiment stamp from my stash




Hope you've all had a fab week! I'm slowly picking up a little from my recent relapse but still very slow with the crafting at the mo!

Not been on here much either so I'll be popping round your blogs as soon as I can :-)

Have a great weekend!
