Tilda with Straw Hat

Hello everyone,
I'm sorry for being so absent lately. There are some things in my life now that keep me really busy and I really don't know where to start first to catch up with everything, lol!

Anyway, my card is for our challenge over at Bunny Zoe's Crafts. This month our theme is LACE - any type of lace you wish - it can be real lace, paper or made with dies or punches.

For my card, I used the sweet Tilda with Straw Hat from the Butterfly Dreams collection. The Happy Birthday sentiment is by Magnolia too.

The sentiment on the tag is by Stempelglede (Just a note set):

a little peek of the inside:

Hi Silvie!
what a brilliant card. I love the tag and how you stamped the edge. Super sentiment on it. Your coloring makes me want to go out and buy some copic's. It is so vibrant and beautiful. I love your mixture of flowers too.
I was wondering if you sand your DP paper to get that white look or is it paint??? Whatever it is it looks wonderful
Hugs Maz
