Happy 3rd Birthday - Charisma Cardz!! :)



Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you!....... :)

Its Charisma Cardz 3rd Birthday today, (Woo!)  so we are celebrating by having lots of fabby sponsors and some gorgeous inspiration by every one of the DT!  The challenge theme is 'Happy Birthday' and we are sponsored by:


Santa bought me some gorgeous Magnolia stash for crimbo (lucky me!) and I have been dying to have a good play with it, so I went to town on this card with a cute Tilda and lots of doo-hickey dies.  I have also used Spellbinders and Memory Box dies and  I hand-stitched Prima papers and inked all the edges. 

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Just Magnolia - Anything Goes
CES Challenges - Anything Goes
Magnolia Down Under - Anything Goes
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Kraft Card
Magnolia-licious - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Die Cute Special
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Dream Valley - Anything Goes

I hope you find time to check out the challenge blog and enter if you can, and good luck! :)

Hey Alison, your cards are always special; I never thought so many dies would look so awesome together, yet they do. But I reckon it takes a super skilled hand like yours to arrange them properly:) All in all, awesome card and beautiful colouring!
Wish you and your loved ones a prosperous and healthy 2012!
Oh...and thanks for playing along at Just Magnolia!
Hugs, Iulia

Paula (PEP) said...

Those Doo-Hickey flowers & fronds are rather splendid & I do like the way they echo Tilda's hair in shape & the PJ trim echoes the fronds - couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that.
