Magical Birthday

magnolia tilda with wand
sweet image by magnolia, I made this card a while ago now, just havn't gotten round to posting it here.. :)
magnolia tilda with wand
not sure of the papers, they were floating so to speak, so i had to use them.. haha.. again i have used various flowers from various makes  some are wild orchid crafts and some are what i have had about 2 years.. yes i know.. but i have tonnes of flowers.. i was fixated with the things at one time..  i have tubs full of different colours and still have more packed in bags as there is no room for them..  and guess what.. i am still buying more..  think that i need help!!! rofl.. 
the swirl with the pearls is from a paper shapers punch, i used a martha stewart border punch and ran it through the crimper thingy..

different angle.. oh the charm, i bought off of  Ebay another of my obsessions. …. charms..
