A New Birthdaycard

Today I've taken a break from the confirmationcards, and made this girly birthdaycard instead. I really enjoyed going back to Magnolias, soft, cute colours, glitter and sparkle. (I'll show the confirmationcards some other day). 
I found the sketch I've used at CLP , and the inspiration picture at Sketchy Colors immidiately made me think of the greenish Magnoliapaper I've had around for "ages" - it took me some time to find it, but I knew it would have to be somewhere in my paperstack, and after a little digging I foud it :)
A few weeks ago I bought a little handheld sewingmachine (Singer), and today I thought I'd give it a try. 
A short try was enough! After two straight seams I realized I needed a lot of practise before I can use it for cardmaking, so I had to pull out the big machine to finish it.
I've used punches (Martha Stewart) and dies (Magnolia Doohickeys and MarianneDesign), flowers, 
a keycharm, pearlstrings, halfbeads, twine, cheesecloth, LiquidPearls, glimmermist and lots of glitterstickles. 
Oh, and all paperedges are distressed (DistressInk WalnutStain).
The image (Magnolia) is coloured with ProMarkers (and a little glitter on Tildas dress and hairbows).
The card will be entered into the following challenges:
CLP - Sketch
Sketchy Colors - Mint, Pink & White
Stampin' for the Weekend - Sparkle and Shine
MSL - Stitching
Totally Tilda - Stitching

I hope you'll have a little patience with my dark pictures. We still have dark nights up north where I live, and I really wanted to finish this blogpost tonight, as I'll be away 'till late tomorrow night.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog, I appreciate all visits and comments.
