New Month-New Magnolia-licious DT challenge!

Hello! The new DT challenge for the month of August was brought to us (and YOU!) by Diana herself!! And we said, "What, ONLY paper?! How can that be done?" Well, it's a challenge, it's supposed to challenge you a bit, ya know? So here is my card made from only paper (and a few stickles!). It was actually kind of fun because I do love to make my own flowers. When you do so you can get the exact color you want! But no ribbon or buttons, that was tough! I used the image #226 BIRTHDAY TILDA. I see it is out of stock right now in full size, but is available in mini size.

I just love the combo of red and aqua! I cannot imagine it now, but I used to hate them together! I used paper from Cosmo Cricket, Spellbinders grand Nestabilities (Labels 4), a Marianne die (from Bunny Zoe's store), Spellbinders rose dies and the leaf die is from Magnolia-licious.

I used copics in the following colors:

E000, E00, E11, and R30 skin
aqua BG0000, BG11 and just a little E42 to dull it down a bit

Red- R08, R17, R46 and R30 for blending (I just love her red shoes!)

hair Y21, Y24, E99, E25

Y21 and E42 for candles and cake.

And here is the inside ;)

If you have any questions, please let me know~I'll be happy to answer!

A birthday card was a must for me as my birthday is next Sunday and sweet Diana's is later in the month of August! It's a great month!

GORGEOUS!!!!! Love this card, Cheryl!! Your coloring is amazing (as it always is) and the shape of the card is fantastic! Absolutely beautiful! When I see a card like this, I wonder why we invest all that money in purchased flowers and ribbon when you can do something like this in paper! Fabulous inspiration!!
hugs! Sharon
