Birthday Wishes at Magnolia Down Under......and blog candy winner!

I have my DT card for

Magnolia Down Under
This week it's our 3rd BIRTHDAY!!
It's hard to believe that the Challenge blog has been going for 3 years now! I have to say that I am so proud to be one of the Designer's. I  love my time with these ladies!! They are all such great ladies with big hearts and tons of talent and good old fashion advise at times.  A wonderful team!!! I heart them all!
We have a *NEW* blog look that you will not want to miss! Here is a little sneak peek for you of a blog button for us DT girlies. 
Miss Kylie has worked very hard on the new look.  It's soooooo cute and so fitting for a DOWN UNDER challenge blog!!!! What a way to start year 3!!
I hope that you will be able to join us this week with a birthday card! Great prizes to be won! Check out the Challenge blog for all the info.

Now for my card today...

I have made a fun little gift card holder.  It took me one whole day to figure out just how to do this. It's my own design and I think that it turned out great! Sarah was so happy with it and thought that it was very clever.  I will be making more of these in the near future.  Very easy to make!

I have used #3060 Sneaky Tilda on the front of my card and #294 Mini Tilda with Balloon in the inside.
The Magnolia-licious store   has both of these stamps and they come in regular size and mini size!!

Magnolia-licious store   has lot of things for your stamping needs. Always fast and friendly service!!

I see that Diana is out of the Tilda with ballon right now but she will have her back in stock soon! There are many other cute little Tilda's holding balloons. You can see them if you click on the #294 Mini link.

I have colored my images with my copic markers.
I have used my computer for the Wishes on the front of my card and then used my Spell Binders to cut it out. I have popped it with foam tapes. Then I have cut out my #3060 Sneaky Tilda and have her also popped on the side of that. 
embellies: pearls, ribbons, trim, paper flowers.
I have inked all of my edges with my distressed inks.

(Now for a look at the inside..)
See the gift card is tucked down and under the layers of paper. In the next photo you can see that I have pulled it out a bit. 
I just love how this turned out!

(This last photo is of the whole inside)
I have done my message on the computer.

Have you entered my followers candy yet?
You have until March 23th to do so.
You can find it on yesterday's post. 

As promised I have my winner from the comments on March 3, 2012 post. 
I have randomly picked my winner for the #253 Garden Tilda Magnolia stamp.
I have used to pick my winner.

Paula CONGRATS Please use my email me button on my side bar and send me your info so that I can get your candy posted to you!
( Paula I will be away from my computer until Monday March 12th. So I will not reply until after then.)
Thanks to everyone that played along with me!
