LHOSM Challenge #158 - Anything Goes

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well.

It's time for another month long challenge over on Lovely Haenglar or Sweet Magnolia blog.
Our challenge theme is ANYTHING GOES

I have made a Springtime Birthday card.

I used a Magnolia stamp that I bid on, and won on ebay.
Yes, I am very happy!
I'm not sure what she is called as she hasn't been released yet.
 I'll call the stamp Tilda with Bird!?

I used lots of lovely products from Swedish House Crafts on my card.

Links to the products can be found in my post.

The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock, and cut using Gummiapan pierced scalloped circle.
I coloured the image with Prismacolor & polychromos pencils.

For the shape of my card, I used GoKreate large frame frilly #10, and Maja Design Celebration papers.
Other dies used are; Cheery Lynn French pastry doily, Gummiapan pierced scalloped circles nesting dies, and birdie die. Marianne Design Ivy circle, Magnolia Doohickey Bloomy tags, fruit tree, and market fence.
The pretty lace is from my stash!

 I used Gummiapan angelpost stamp to stamp around the outside of the scalloped circle, and stamped the bumble bee using Magnolia stamp bumble bee which also includes a lovely May flowers sentiment.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a white gelly roll pen, and gave the bee's wings some sparkle with glamour dust.

A close look at my flower arrangement.
The flowers, seam binding, and happy birthday cake charm tied with twine are from my stash! 

The tiny leaves between the arrangement are die cut using a leaf die from Doohickey club vol 16.

The self adhesive letters that I used to spell the name Emma are from Hobby Craft.
I adhered the letters to the tag with 2mm foam tape.

A closer look at the Doohickey fruit tree, market fence, and Gummiapan birdie.

Inside the card is decorated.
