Magnolia Birthday Wishes

Finally.....I had a card to show you, after 3 months break from my crafting "career":-)) Yes, It's my career and I realized I can't live without it. I reorganized my stamping area and changed to a new location in my house to make it more convenince for me to make cards. I also surfed a lot of crafting blog when I was free and I noticed Magnolia had been added more DT member, congratulations to all who had been chosen. For the starting and a little warming up, I picked up last release stamp and make a card which I think it was fun and I try to think out side the box too.

The right side's patterned paper can be opened and I punched with Martha Stewart Doily Punch.The left side is vellum and I punched with the new punch that I purchased in May but no chance to use it.The "celebrate" patterned paper was handmade which I inked with various Distress inks then stamped with Stampin'Up -Celebrate on the cardstock.
I colored Tilda with Copic Ciao markers and colored pencils, blended with paper stump and sansodor.

I hope that you can find some inspiration on this card. For these hard time( I need to take care of my father and the whole family) I am unable to make many cards as I wish.I hope that you all understand and be patience with me.
