Happy Sunday to all of you .... and Happy New Year since this is my first post of 2011!

I managed to catch one heck of a cold this week and haven't felt like making cards until today.  I've got a couple of DT cards that are due so I need to get busy on those too.  But first, I have a birthday card to share with you.  I've had these Magnolia stamps for a while and just now got around to inking them up.

The stamp is Fairy Dust Tilda and she's one of my favorite Magnolia stamps ... hmm, I think I say that about all my stamps, don't I?  I used my prismacolor pencils to color the image.  I added Glamour Dust to the eyelet on her outfit and to the "fairy dust" she's blowing.  I stamped and embossed the Snowy Circle and then added a tiny little pearl in each of the snowflakes.  I embossed my cardstock with a snowflake embossing folder and added some navy ribbon, and larger pearls in the corners. 

Thank you for stopping by.
