CCT someone special: 'It's your day'

CCT theme this week is 'someone special'.  I've made a birthday card for 'someone special' (as it's bound to go to a family member and they're all special, right?!) - just not sure who yet ;) but when I do, I'll just ring their birthdate with a red pen to personalise it.

As you can see, I've rediscovered my love for my Magnolias and have coloured in another cutie, this time with her daily papers.  The rectangular  background behind her is a piece of white card I have stamped and sponged myself, with distress inks, to match the rest of the papers (which were all scraps left over from my last 2 cards) and the calender bit is another stamp (Hero arts).  And yes, it's that flourish swirl die again - you might be seeing that for a bit until I've gotten it out of my system LOL

Tilda is raised on foam pads which you might see better in this next photo

Wasn't too sure where I was going with this when I started this one but am really pleased with how it turned out now.  Thank you for dropping by and I'll probably be back early next week as I do have another card made but it's for my sister and I want to make sure she gets it first, before I show it on here, as I know she reads my blog ;)   So until then, have a lovely rest of the week and enjoy your weekend.
