Happy Birthday Tilda

Hello bloggy friends.
I hope this Sunday finds you well and happy?
Well, as it is Sunday that means there is another new challenge over at the Totally Tilda challenge blog.
Firstly though, I would just like to say thank you for all your wonderful entries on the last challenge.
It always makes it hard to choose a winner/top 3 but that's part of the fun!
So what are we going to tempt you with this time??
Well the new challenge is:
You MUST  use the words Happy Birthday on your creation
Before I show you my card I would just like to let you know that we have a fabulous Guest Designer joining us for the whole of this challenge.
Elizabeth was one of the GDT's we chose from over 100 people and as soon as you see her card you will know why we chose her.
Thank you Elizabeth for joining us this fortnight with your fabulous Happy Birthday creations.
Please hop on over to Elizabeth's blog and have a look at her work and remember to leave her some Tilda love!!
So on to the card I made for the new challenge:
I used Tilda holding tulips and coloured her in with my promarkers/flexmarkers.
The die cut is made with my scalloped circle nestabilites and the doily is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have used TH Broken China DI around the edge of the nestability and on the doily.
The piece of fencing is the last little bit of a die cut that my good friend Liz sent me for my birthday, thanks Nana!!

I have used a MS PATP (just love these - must get some more!!)  The DP is from the Sweet Crazy Love Magnolia collection which I bought from Sir Stampalot and this is matted onto terracotta TH C'ordinations card.
All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts except the brown baby's breath which is from my stash and the twirly thing is a pipe cleaner, sprayed with glue and rolled in Glamour Dust.  The gems are from my stash as is the Happy Birthday die cut sentiment which I have coloured with DI to match the doily and the die cut.
So there you go peeps, hope you like it.
