A Virgo Birthday!!!

Good Wednesday evening (well at least here in Canada) all!

I've been slowly working through the Magnolia's Zodiac collection...this is such an awesome collection!!!  Two of my Daughter-in-laws are Virgos...both blondes but that's where their similarities!!

I went with a Virgo card for just one of them though!!!

In keeping with Fussy and Fancy's current "Pink" challenge in honour of breast cancer awareness I went with pinks for this card.

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a close view/slideshow...
front of the card...Virgo Tilda (from the Zodiac 2014 Collection) sitting on Magnolia bench...
I used Go Kreate #260022 Half XXL Square Frames Frilly #2 to create the shape...
the DP is Maja from the Sofiero Collection...
I used both sides of "A Romantic Picnic in the Park"...
 closer view of Virgo Tilda...
I surrounded her with pink shabby ribbon...
and yes I had to use some Frantage...
 I made the stick pin arrangement using the "So Wrapped Tilda Lace" die cut...
stamped "Happy Birthday" using LOTV Set 58 Pretty Grungy-Good Times on it...
added beads, ribbon and a butterfly using Joycrafts 6002/0027...  
 the bottom arrangement was made using the two remaining butterflies from the same Joycraft butterfly die cut...
 perched on flowers...with pearl accents...
the  layers tied together with a ribbon bow...
flowers at corners are made from a Marvy flower punch and decorated with pearls...
 the card opened...
Virgo definition decorates one page...
"You're Special" stamp by Hero Arts decorates another page...
both are mounted on Go Kreate #120022 Concentrics  Frilly Squares #2...
the second to last page has a money pocket on it made using the same Go Kreate die as above...
the last page is our sentiment to Natalie and "Delightful Tilda" from the Special Moments 2013 collection...

Well that is my Virgo card...I know that you're all thinking "Hey it's actually Libra's month" but hey I'm a little late with this card...thank goodness our Miss Nat is understanding...LOL!!!
