Happy Springtime Birthday

I think TOMICs latest challenge was so fun. "Spring Colour Combo Inspired by Magnolia Ink Magazine plus magazine shape" - I really had a good time making this one!
And with all springchallenges around it was plenty of inspiration to find.
I used green and "whitish" cardstock and designpapers, one with a lovely laceprint, one of the others has a wonderful embossed butterflytexture (used for the belt).
All paperedges are distressed (DistressInk WalnutStain).
Tilda with her little budgerigar in a cage is coloured with ProMarkers.
I also used ProMarkers to make a background to Tilda.
(We had a little quarrel about the bird, me and Hedda. She meant it was a parrot, but this bird is a yellow budgie!)
The swirls are made with Spellbinders dies, and the tag with a Magnolia DooHickey. I punched butterflies with Martha Stewart punches and brushed over them with Glimmerglaze. Of cours I had to put on some halfpearls, and if you look very close you can see that I had to put on some teeny-tiny pearls on the background to Tilda, using Liquid Pearls :)

On the tag I used a text from a Greeting Farm set ("Sweet Message):
Close-up of Tilda, on her dress I actually used both Pro- and FlexMarkers:
A closer view of the belt:
Inside the card I Used Spellbinders Labels Four, and a textstamp from Kort&Godt:
Here's the card with the magazine that should inspire:
