Sweet Birthday Wishes!

Friends, I apologize for neglecting my blog the past few months--life has been a whirlwind getting ready for my son's wedding! I'll be posting pictures of the invitations and programs, and all the other things I made for the wedding, in a few weeks.
For today, though--here is a sweet little card I made for my dear friend's birthday in July. Once "Tilda Holding Lilacs" was colored (Copic colors listed below), I masked her off and airbrushed a light sky background, and a pale green ground. (Still practicing with airbrushing, but I'm getting a little more comfortable with it!)
I used a grass stamp from Judith Stamps to complete the scene, and highlighted the lilacs and the area around Tilda with Stardust Stickles.
Hope you enjoy seeing this little card as much as I did making it!

Your card is absolutely lovely! I'm new to Magnolia stamps and enjoy seeing everyone's artwork.
Good Luck with your wedding! 4 years ago both of my daughters decided to get married in the same year - just 3 months apart. Crazy!
