A special kind of gal

And that's who I made this card for....
My sister is a wonderful, charming, one of kind type of person and her birthday is coming soon. So when I saw the theme at the Sweet Stampin Challenge blog, "Bingo" - it had to be fate, right ???

For this card, I started with the color combination specified at the Magnolia down under challenge blog - Pink and lime. And since I hadn't made this kind of card for a long time, it was fun.

 The image is Magnolia Tilda - colored with alcohol markers. The bouquet of flowers in her hand has dots of silver liquid pearls interspersed.  The flowers on the right are a combination of punched, die cuts and store bought. The flowers are topped with pearls.  The pink swirly branches are  made with a Memory Box corner die cut. The sentiment is hand written.

The inside card  is simple and topped with a Spellbinder die cut and a rose flower.
