Secret Tilda Birthday card

I made this card for the new Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge blog the theme is birthday.  I also used this wonderful sketch and flowers galore challenge from the Just Magnolia challenge blog.

I have decided to try and use up some of the older paper collections I have in my stash, so grabbing my Basic Grey Urban Couture 12x12 papers I created the card base following the challenge sketch.  I used my Cheery Lynn Designs Oval Stackers for the panels behind Tilda.  Next came Tilda, this is Secret Tilda from the Merry Little Christmas collection, perfect image for a birthday card.  I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen paper.  Copics used:
Tilda - E000, E00, white glaze pen
Hair - E21, E23
Outfit - BV31, G20
Package - E41, R81, R85
Shadow - W1
The beautiful roses are from I Am Roses, aren't they fabulous.  I so admire all the bloggers who are able to create fantastic floral displays on their cards and am trying to master this technique but I need to get some rose buds, I think.  I die cut Fanciful Flourish also from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I snipped the flourish apart and moved the pieces around to frame the flowers.  The last step was airbrushed gems to match and that was it.  Finished size is 6" square.
