It’s Blog Hop time over at the Magnolia-licious™ Challenge and this time our theme is ‘Birthday Fun’ You should have arrived here from the very talented Norma if not you can find a full list of stops on the Magnolia-licious™ blog and you definitely won’t want to miss a thing, so pop back and start at the beginning and hop right through.

As the hop is Birthday themed what better to create than a Birthday cake card and Gift bag:

Birthday hop

My Tilda’s are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E57, E55, E53, E21 clothes: R43, R32, R30, R01, R00, R0000, W5, W3, W1, W0

The Cake card is created using this template from Sandra’s Scrap shop, this post is very picture heavy as I wanted you to see all the wonderful details of the bag and card. Here is my card:
