Happy Birthday Challenge #2

I realized after I posted my first card that this was suppose to be a Happy Birthday project for Paulina!  I hope she likes little guys lol.  I then got to work creating a new card for the Magnolia Inspiration Challenge.  Today's card featured Tilda holding a birthday package.  I was buried in the bottom of my paper stash when I would this gorgeous background paper.  I used a cut-out from that paper for her party hat.  The sentiment "wrapped in love" was also cut out and popped up sitting atop a dainty doily.  The bow that I added was created by dying some white seam binding with distress inks.  Pretty, isn't it? I sewed the background paper to the cardstock for that "special" effect.  I thought her dress needed something extra so I added polkadots using my white gel pen.  A perfect match for her hat!  I'm not sure of the Copic colors for a lot of the project but I can tell you that her dress was colored using R81, R83, and R85.  I hope that you enjoy my efforts!  Love, Elle
