Spring "Tilda" B-day Card

It is a beautiful Saturday today...sunshine, warm temps, birds twittering cheerfully...and I got go outside and play in the dirt! My flower gardens are all cleaned out already and I have dirt under my fingernails! AND my hubby is taking me out to eat to night...can it get any better than that?!

Oh, yeah, the laundry isn't quite done...oh well. Mondays are for laundry, right?

So early this afternoon I worked on a card and finished it in record time. For once I knew what I wanted to do! However my nasty camera is acting up again so the picture is a little fuzzy. Sorry.

I did make one little change to Tilda...she WAS holding an ornament which I have obviously replaced with a piece of chocolate B-day cake!

This card is going to be entered in several challenges.

Here is the list of ingredients, with a * by the ones that can be purchased at Cindy's stampingscrapping.com:

White, green and lavender print paper are from my stash, the stripe is Imaginesce*

The stamps are "Vintage Tilda" by Magnolia* & "Bench" by Sugarplums*

I used a Cuttlebug folder* to emboss the green paper

The pearls are from Queen & Co.

The lace & ribbon are from my stash, as well as the flowers

I used Stickles* on all the leaves and pink roses and around Tilda

The die-cut leaf branches and the scalloped oval I got from someone, not sure of brand And the "Make a Wish" sentiment was from a generic acrylic set I have


And here is th elist of challenges:
