Happy Birthday, Lillian!

This is one of the sweetest Magnolia stamps I own. She's wonderful for so many types of cards!

I made this card for my BFF Lillian's birthday. Pink is Lillian's favorite color, which makes my life easy since I like pink, too, and have loads of papers and embellishments in pink. I used a new Magnolia die, a Martha Stewart Punch, and an EK (I think) corner punch. My flowers are from Wild Orchid and my stash. The lace is from my generous supply which I pick up at sewing and quilt conventions, remnant shops, antique shops and anywhere there's lace. That's how my blog got it's name! I was generous with Stickles since she is a princess, after all, and I used a little white paint on the papers.

Happy birthday, Lillian, and I hope it was a wonderful day!

                                                     Thanks for looking at this post!
