The Official Magnolia Inspirations Challenge #1!

Hi! And welcome to my post for Challenge #1 at The Official Magnolia Inspirations Challenge (TOMIC)!  Yaaaaay!! We are all so excited.

For our first challenge all of the Magnolia DT girls who are participating in the challenge are playing along and after this week we break into groups. The first challege is very special - the theme is "Birthdays".  The entire Design Team has created birthday cards to send to an extremely important person in the world of Magnolia stamps - the creater, our talented Pauline, who is celebrating her birthday today :)

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday dear Pauliiiinnnnnneeeeee
Happy birthday to you!
Grattis på födelsedagen!  Kram xx

The card I made for Pauline features one of her earlier Tilda stamps from 2006. Hasn't Tilda grown up? lol. This adorable little Tilda is "Gungande Tilda" from the Summer, Sun and Rain 2006 collection.  I've made a circle card and punched a strip of white cardstock with a border punch and pleated it to create the pretty edge. The card also has had a little bit of a white wash with some Gesso. All of the flowers are rolled paper flowers and I've decorated the inside of the card as well. I hope Pauline likes the card when she opens the envelope.

We would love for you to come along with our first challenge. We are sponsored by Magnolia with the random winner receiving a secret package from Magnolia! We can't wait to see what you create :)

Hugs xx
