Just Magnolia Challenge - Birthday Card

This weeks Just Magnolia Challenge is to create a Birthday Card, Ive used two of the new Of the Ceiling stamps, Tilda in her ladybug suite and the dog Wilma, shes carrying a rose. Ive stamped and masked them onto white card and coloured them with my copic pens. Afterwards Ive cut them out with my nestabilitie dies, and drawn around the die to create a mount, the sentiment is done in the same way.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, with my first layer of red pearlescent card, and one of three papers from the new Papermania pad "Rose Garden", its got some really lovely papers and I wanted to use my floral punch rose as a embellishment and felt the papers were appropriate. The first layer is a white base with rose bunches on and the next two layers are first a sort of paisley pattern and the second another rose bunch design, Ive used my heart border punch on both of these. For the last mount Ive used a piece of pink pearlescent paper and my deep heart border punch on both edges and stuck it across the middle of the other two layers and then popped some ribbon along the middle of it.
Ive then stuck my mounted image in the centre with my sentiment at the bottom on the right. Ive actually created two swirls with some pearls but they dont stand out to well in this photo, but I have also arranged some leaves in the top left hand corner and then stuck my rose on top. This was created by using a small balloon punch and moulded and then stuck firstly to a circle then build up gradually in layers to create the whole rose.
