TOMIC Challenge #1

I worked a 12 hour shift yesterday and I took my copics and a few stamped images to help pass the quiet times, I got a few images coloured in. One of which was 'Birthday Tilda', so when I logged on to The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge or TOMIC there was only one image I could use for their theme of 'Happy Birthday Pauline'.

I'm entering this card into TOMIC. As I mentioned earlier I've coloured Tilda in copics, trying my best to try and make the candles look like they're illuminating her face from the bottom. The gorgeous papers are from pion, and I've carried the girlie theme through with the glimmer mist pink roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. I've had to hold myself back from using more flowers as I didn't want to cover up the stunning paper. I've also distressed the edges and sewn them.

I've used my magnolia doohickeys and nesties on this card. I've also just got a ribbon punch, so I had to find a way to use this.

I've put a few gems in the corners, and had to make myself stop with the embellishments, but I think less is more with this card.

That's it from me for now, hugs
