Simply Magnolia (DT) - It's A Celebration!

Good morning and a HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!  We're kicking off the New Year with a Celebration at the Simply Magnolia challenge blog.  It can be a Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary or just Happy New Year....  So, if you're been hibernating over this festive season, it's time to get out your (new) crafty toys and join us in this first challenge for 2012.

Our sponsor is MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS.  Isn't that wonderful?  This should be incentive enough for you to take part.

My card for this challenge is a Birthday Card, which is a wonderful celebration, don't you agree!  Happy Birthday to all the New Year babies today!  I've used Tilda Loves Flowers from Magnolia's new Sweet Crazy Love Collection.  If you don't have her yet, pop on over to the Magnolia-licious store where Diana has an amazing 17% discount on this stamp.

She is an adorable stamp to colour. I am so pleased I have her.  My plain coloured cardstock is American Craft purchased from the Scrapbook Shop in Bellville.  The beautiful floral design paper is from the Annalee paper pad range by Prima Marketing.  Sentiment is from LOTV, I think!

I added some dimension glaze to Miss Tilda's flowers, if you click on the pic I think you can get a better view.

That's it!  Please view the rest of our Design Team's creations, they will definitely inspire you to take part.  Happy crafting!
