Magnolia Cupcake Birthday Treat

Happy Saturday everyone, the sunshine has left us this afternoon in Oxfordshire so it's an ideal time to upload my card for today.
I made this card a little while ago now for a special lady in the Netherlands and haven't got around to posting it.
Luckily for me over at Just Magnolia the theme is "Eyes Down - Bingo", the idea is to choose three embellishments from the list either across, down or diagonally. For my combination I have chosen , gems, flowers, ribbon and lace.
Also over at Colour Create the theme is pastels.
I have used a cute Tilda from the Butterflies and Dream collection and have coloured her with Prisma Pencils.
The flowers around Tilda are the waste from the punched edging. The paper I love, its a set from Dovecraft called Tea House, it is full of pastel shades.
Here is a close up of Tilda and my stitching, which isn't too bad!
To embellish the card I have used Prima flowers, roses, lace, ribbon, pearls, gems and butterflies punched, stamped and glazed.
I have found a few other challenge blogs that I can enter my card into. They are:
I am off to the NEC tomorrow, to see what goodies I can find......... not that I need anything but its very difficult to see all the things on offer and not spend any money.

Have a great weekend and thank you for taking the time to stop by today.
