Marvelous Magnolia 'Birthday Bash'

This is a Sticky, please scroll down for newer posts

Hello my lovelies,

It is very exciting as we are celebrating our 1st Birthday at Marvelous Magnolia today! To commemorate this special day we have a beautiful new design to our challenge blog. The   celebrations will continue for two weeks. Each day there will be a different post where we will be sharing a card made a Guest Designer (boy do we have a talented line up) plus there will be a new sponsor where you could win their donated prize.   To be in with a chance of winning the prize from the sponsor of the day all you have to do is be a follower of our the challenge blog,  leave a comment on the challenge blog post and leave a comment on the personal blog of our Guest Designer, a winner will be picked randomly.

So onto my creation, I have made a scene using Tilda with Heart Balloons, Tilda with Two Rosettes, Tilda with Balloon and Sweet Christmas Present. The scene was coloured using Copic Markers and just a few highlights added using Prisma Pencils. I am ashamed to admit that I did use a template by the House of Zandra to make this set of crafty drawers and have dipping in and out of it since the summer. There are a total of 12 drawers in which you can store all your crafty bits and pieces. The papers are my favourite and are of course by Maja. The swirl is a Magnolia DooHickeys die and the corner is a Cheery Lynn. The Daisy, Lilies and Flat Back Pearl are from the Ribbon Girl and everything else is from my crafty stash. Inside one of the drawers is a pack of Snowflake charms from the Hobby House.
As a little extra I have put a pack of Snowflake Charms inside the drawer

As part of Birthday bash each of the D.T. team is giving away their wonderful creations so if you would like to be in with a chance of winning mine then (I hope this bit works as it is the first time I have done it, I am out all day today so if it hasn't I will try and rectify things as soon as I get home) :
