Miss Magnolia (again)!

Good morning my blog friends and a big hello & welcome to my new followers!
Thank you too for all the lovely Birthday wishes - can't believe i'm 47 today!
And my gorgeous 3rd Son is 18 tomorrow - Happy Days!!
So, the card i want to share today was meant to be for a friend - until i checked my pre-blog photos and realised the card i made her last year was made using exactly the same image!!!!
Good job i checked, too, as she's also a card maker and keeps all the cards i make for her so she would have known for sure!
Oh well, back to the drawing board, i guess!
I do like this card, though, so it's no hardship looking at it for a while!
I stamped the two Magnolia images, coloured them with pro/flexmarkers then cut out Tilda and placed her in window. I used brown card and the paper is some i found when having a sort out - i've no idea what it is but it's so beautiful, embossed and glittered in lovely shades of orange/peach and brown - and it's double sided!
The flowers were all cream - i coloured odd ones with flexmarkers to match! The lace was just a scrap and the wooden flower is from a prize from Lisa -thank you, Lisa! A few pearls also coloured with flexmarkers, a computer generated sentiment and that's it!
Hope you all have a fab weekend, I'm off to eat Birthday cake!
