Magnolia Birthday Card

And it was about time that I made a Magnolia card...LOL!

So here's a little one I did for my MIL, who celebrated her birthday recently...

This card IS NOT of my original inspiration...  I did it inspired in my fellow Magnolia DT--Camilla H.  She did a beautiful job with hers...  you can see it here.  And so I decided to give this layout a try.

I colored Tilda with Distress Inks, and handmade the flowers with my Sizzix.  I also did a lot of distressing and machine sewing.  The title "Feliz Cumpleaños" (Happy Birthday) was created with a computer font.  At the end of this post is the full supplies list.

Beautiful Jany! I love the way you coloured the Magnolia, I need to learn how to do that. Great d/p and embellishments. A big hug, Zulma.

Lovin this one! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend. I wanted a real ball busting card. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.
