Happy Birthday -A Magnolia-Licious WWPB Wild Rose Studio DT Card

Hello my crafty friends and a good Sunday morning to ya!

Guess what I got done this weekend and early ahead of the game for ME I might add?!! I actually got all 3 of my boys school shopping done and that includes all their new clothes and supplies for the year! So proud of myself because I got it done all in one day!! I usually procrastinate and end up doing it last minute and have to squeeze through all the "back-to-school" shopper crowds. I wasn't having that this year, peaceful and stress free for me...although my kiddos were groaning and complaining about 2 hours into shopping LOL. But that's boys for ya! But hey, I made up for it with Miccy-D's as their reward for being such troopers! ;)


I have another lovely Magnolia-Licious card to share with you all! And today I have used a gorgeous Wild Rose Studio stamp! Loving the adorable, girly and dainty feel of these stamps!

I made this card for my hubby's grandma...I guess that would make her my grand-mother in law? lol. She wanted some birthday cards made for her mother. So I got the first one done...lots more to go! lol

I think this may be the absolutely most PINK and girly card I have ever done! I'm not too big on pink...but I love the way this turned out!

The image I used for my card today is from the new Wild Rose Studio collection in the Magnolia-Licious shop!

I almost felt like scrapping my coloring because I boo booed on the sky...I ran out of my blue inks!! So I wasn't able to blend the gray in correctly. I also ran out of my colorless that didn't help me there either. I kinda fixed it...or so I think by covering the sky up with a swarm of teeny matching butterflies. Definitely time to buy some refills!! So no more skies from me for awhile.. I kinda boo booed the highlights too with my White Opaque pen...anyone know how to erase that stuff??? Would LOVE to know! LOL

By the way, the lovely papers I used for my card also come from the Magnolia-Licious shop and are matching sets that go along with the Wild Rose Studio stamps!! How neat is that?!! LOVE these little paper pads!! Perfect for your 6x6 cards!! You can find the adorable paper packs HERE in the shop!

I have some close up views of all the assorted blooms I used including crocheted flowers, the hidden vintage lace on the side and one of my handmade glossy accents pebbles featuring one of the adorable tweety birds from the paper pack!

I heat embossed the sentiment too...but you can't tell in the picture. Can you believe I actually found this sentiment stamp in the bargain bin area! It's beautiful, LOVE the font! 

Now for the inside and I used more of that beautiful paper from the matching Wild Rose Studio paper pack!
