Wonderful Wednesday.......


I hope you are all good and that life is treating you well. 

Today I would like to share with you a card I made for a very sweet friend's birthday.

I have coloured these Magnolia images with distress ink pads. I masked Tilda in front of this Magnolia fence. I have distressed all my edges with walnut stain. 

I have also decorated the inside.

Here is the inside left. I have die cut the borders, butterfly and leaf swirl using Magnolia's dies. Just love them all, they go so perfectly with Magnolia's images.

I have used a nestie for cutting the bazzill to write my message on.

The stickles I have added are star dust.

Thank you so very much for visting my blog and I wish you all a great rest of the week.
