aged 9

I needed a birthday card for my niece's 9th birthday and as I was using a Magnolia stamp, I thought I would try out the sketch at the new Magnolia challenge blog: Just Magnolia.

It says that you can combine this with as many challenges as you would like so I am also going to enter this into three other challenges:

Cute Card Thursday where the challenge is to use any type of flower.

Dutch Dare Card Challenge where the challenge is to use your favourite things. My favourite things at the moment are my new craft punches.

One Stop Craft Challenge where the challenge is to use decorative cuts.
This is probably the largest card I have ever made, measuring 6" x 12". It just kept growing! I will redo the photos, the lighting wasn't at its best.

I used papers from the Cosmo Cricket ~ Girl Friday collection: Thursday, Monday and Saturday.

I used two Magnolia stamps ~ Sweetheart and Birthday Present and I coloured them with my copics. I created a background for Tilda using Tim Holtz crackle paints and inks.
The number '9' was a chipboard diecut which I painted and then added some crackle accents.
I created the circles behind Tilda with my new Fiskars ~ Daisy border punch.
For the zig zags at the bottom of the card, I used my new Martha Stewart ~ Zigzag edge punch. This was from my friend Deb, she does spoil me ~ but THANK YOU!
Flowers and brads were from my stash and the sentiment is Penny Black.
Thank you for looking.
