Tilda Is Baking for your Birthday!

I finally made a Magnolia card!! It's been so long since I've made one, but I've really been wanting to make one because I recently joined the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group and everyone is so inspiring!  For this card, I tried to follow Suzanne Dean's YouTube tutorial on how to use Copics to make it look like you colored with Distress Inks (click here for the first video).  I ordered some Distress Ink reinkers and a waterbrush so soon I'll be playing around with those!  Oh, not to mention some new Magnolia Stamps from Magnolia-licious, also ;)

Hope you like my card and thanks for looking!

Stamp: Magnolia Stamps Kitchen Tilda; Ink: Copics, Sharpie Poster Paint; Paper; BasicGrey Nook and Pantry; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, embossing folder, ribbon, Prima flower, cherry blossom, pearls

Here's a close-up of Tilda
