Spring at TPC

Hi everyone,
It's time for a new challenge at 
and the theme chosen by our fabulous Lisa is Spring.

I saw this cutie pop up lately on a few of the talented blogs I follow and decided it was time I tried my hand at colouring her.  I bought her last year and sadly this is the first time she has been inked.  She is a Magnolia stamp called Tilda with Tulips.
I added a beautiful Birthday Circle from Crafty Sentiment Designs, our sponsor this week.

I kept this card fairly simple...tried adding flowers but in the end wanted the doily to be prominent.
  and yes.......... I am hoarding my flowers :)

Here are some Details:
Coloured with Copics
MS Punch-around-the-page Cherish
Graphic 45 DP
Doily - Bo Bunny
Ribbon - Stamp Simply Ribbon Store
SB Floral Ovals
String pearls from Michaels
Sentiment Circle - Crafty Sentiment Designs

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments Designs: Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Rubber Stamps Only

Thanks so much for stopping by and your comments are always appreciated.

Pat, this card is gorgeous. I love this Magnolia stamp too - it is like you want to pinch her belly and cheeks, and give her a huge hug. Love the coloring of her hair. You always do such an incredible job on your cards!
