A special Birthday card

Good day everyone,

We have a new challenge at Simply Magnolia, we want to see some layers.  


I created a Birthday card for a very special lady, my Mom.  She is celebrating her 75th  birthday this week.  I used papers from Prima called Botanical and added lots of lace and pearls.


This little sweetie is called Tilda with a big big rose and she is colored with copics.

Hair: E57, E47, E53, E50

Flowers are WOC and I added some white Gesso


When using the Sizzix Package and Bow die, I cut it twice, 
then I cut out the cover only and glue the top of the boxes on,
 it adds dimension and looks awesome.
