My Daughter's 18th Birthday Card

Good Evening everyone - I hope that you all have had a pleasant weekend. Mine as been totally gorgeous and quiet which doesn't happen often. So I have enjoyed it to the full!!
Firstly, I would like to wish dear Colette from Teddy Bo's design team a Happy Birthday. Hope you have had a great day Babes!
So - on to my card. It's been very hard to get this done whilst my Daughter Chloe as been in the house.
She kept popping in to my craft den. Though I do think she was spying on me, to be honest. 
Cheeky madam.
Little Cup-Cake is a Bath Bomb - which smells so LUSH!! Decorated with matching ribbon and flowers, plus of course I had to add a candle to finish it off. I love giving these as an extra gift.

I have coloured with my favourite medium - pro-markers and used poly pencils for shadows in the dress and balloon. This Maggie is totally gorgeous and most certainly one I like to use a lot, when making birthday cards. 

The inside of the card complements the front. I love to have them matching as it gives a great finish.
The paper's I have used are Mr & Mrs  item # GP348 / Best Creation Inc. 
Double sided with the main lemon, black and white.

I have also used a Marianne Design Creatable - cut twice and attached together to form a frame.
Small butterfly is Magnolia too. Flowers as always are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
Black organza ribbon with charms attached to finish off.

I am going to enter this card into 3 challenges.

* Magnolia Down Under ~ Your favourite things.
I have used my fav stamp, Marianne Creatable, flowers & colour combo.
* Magnoliahaaste ~ Markers ( pro-markers - copics )
