I had to make a birthday card for my bestest friend in the I went with her favourite colours and because she loves working in her appropriately themed Tilda!!

Here is what I came up with...

"Happy Birthday" is Hero Arts...

 sweet "Watering Tilda" from the Spring Fever 2016 collection...
coloured with distress inks...
framed with one of my faves ...lace/rhinestones...
tucked under there some crocheted fringed lace...
the flowers are made with dies from the Magnolia Vintage Box #1 and Magnolia DP layered with pale pink cardstock and cheesecloth...
leaves and butterfly are also from the MVB #1...
