Cute Card Thursday #124 - Whateva / Just Magnolia #66 Bev's Sketch / MDUC #57 Birthdays

The challenge this week at Cute Card Thursday is, well, Whateva. I loved the sketch from Just Magnolia, so used Bev's sketch as the foundation for my card. Here is her sketch...


...and here is my card...


Stamps: Tilda With Christmas Stockings, Circle of Friendship (SU! retired)
Paper: Garden Party (DCWV), Chocolate Chip, Natural White
Ink:  Staz-On, Distress Ink, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes, flowers, leaf punch, branch punch, flat-back pearls, ribbon, lace, acrylic sticker

I colored Tilda with Distress Ink.

The sentiment is from Circle of Friendship from SU! (retired). I made a birthday card to enter into the Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Birthdays.

This looks fancy, but is actually the remnant of the paper I used as the background on my card (part of a 12 x 12 sheet)

Thank you for coming by to visit today. See ya soon!
