May your Day be Special

 I don't often do Magnolia cards, I get a little overwhelmed by all the wonderfully creative and gifted Magnolia cards out there in blog-land. The amount of layering and detail they put into their creations ! although my regular cards are not exactly CAS,  I'm just not sure if I have added enough...or if I have put too much on....anyway. Here's the card...

So a Magnolia stamp, I have coloured with pencils, then layered her wings, cut her out and somewhere under all that is some K&Co and DCWV paper, then a load of die cuts (doily & lace tag; Magnolia Doo-hickey, memory box; honeyblossom and leaves, martha Stewart; butterfly border and butterflies!) Then there's some pearl strand things ! and some pearls  and dew drops (bubbles). Flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid flowers, sentiment from LOTV (circle) and Magnolia. Then there's some lace and lilac ribbon from my stash, organza ribbon on the tag from Crafty think that's it !

I will enter this card into challenges at;
