Birthday Card- Ribbon Girls Magnolia Only DT Card

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Today is the last Sunday of the month and
time for a brand new Magnolia Only Challenge over at
The theme is an easy one ~ Anything Goes.

For my DT creation, I made a birthday card 
using New Year Edwin from the Christmas Story Collection.
I love this image and planned to use it for birthdays and 
other celebrations when I bought it.

I water colored Edwin with DI ink pads. 
I much prefer coloring with DI ink pads than re-inkers as
I find I have better control of the color intensity using the ink pads.

I used CLP February's Sketch for my layout and
Go Kreate Large Frilly #10 die to cut the card base.
Other dies I used are Memory Box and Spellbinders.
The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from LOTV.
The DP is from Pion Design's For Father Collection.

I also used the following embellishments from the 

20mm Cream Cotton Fan Pattern Lace, 38mm Ivory Guipure Lace,
8mm Cream Vintage Style Fine Scallop Lace,
3mm Aqua Sparkle Bead String, Natural Button Twine,
Cream and Blue Seam Binding Ribbons,
White Sweetheart Blossom

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you will
join in the challenge at The Ribbon Girl
and win great prizes.


I will enter this card in the following challenges:
