Tilda's got a wish...

Her wish is for someone to have a great birthday!

I just had to play with my new Tilda for the Magnolia challenge!


You can find the challenge blog HERE. I also made her a blond for THIS challenge blog. The first challenge said to make a shaped card. Another challenge for a shaped card is HERE. I'm not reaaaaaal handy with a pair of scissors, so I decided to use a NESTABILITIES labels set. I cut a regular sized card out of some papertrey cardstock. Then I ran it through the cuttlebug with the nestie and voila - shaped card! Since it was smaller than a regular card, I didn't want to overload it with lots of paper strips and ribbon. I added this cute metallic star (it says WISH all over it) and put some primas and some flowery gems on there too. I used stickles (icicle on the wings and frosted lace for icing on the muffin/cupcake). Also used my spica for the pink glittery frill on the apron. Though you can't see the simple inside, I used a smaller nestie to cut an inlay in white, then stamped "for your birthday" in there. I'm still trying to figure out the best angle for the card and the lighting in my light box so you can see all the pretty and glitter and sparkle...

enjoy!
