We’re two years old!

Yep our  Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge is two years old this month.  And to celebrate we are having a “Birthdays” challenge this week, with an amazing $50 voucher so generously sponsored by the lovely people at Simon Says Stamp.  Hope to see you all joining in the fun this week!!
So seeing as it was our love of Maggies that got the challenge blog going I just had to use my most favouritest Tilda of them all on today’s card.
I got out that black prisma pencil again to add quite a bit of shading as yesterday’s card.  I started off with Copics then moved on to the black pencil (that’s the only colour pencil I used on this card).
Hair: E19, E25, E50
Skin: E21 E11, E00, E000, R20
Dress: V95, V91, V0000; RV32, RV10, RV0000
Bunny: C3, C1, C0, C00, R30
Stone Path: W5,W3,W1,W0, YG63, YG11, G20, BV04, BV02, BV00
I distressed the paper with crackle paint then walnut stain then pushed it up in places to increase the distressed look.  The little tag is from a Spellbinders set, forgot I had it as the package had never been opened and to be honest I can’t even remember buying it!!  How bad am I lol.
I am entering this in the Truly Scrumptious Vintage challenge
And loads of my favourite flowers had to go on as well, for a girl who don’t like lilacs and purples I’m doing well this week aren't I!!  This is the second one lol.
Card Recipe:
Stamp: Tilda with hanging bunny
Paper: Magnolia 6 x 6 Lilac Butterfly
Tools: Magnolia Doo Hickey picket fence, Spellbinders tags, EK Success small retro flower punch
Embellies: Flowers and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts - 30mm wild rose, 25mm tea rose, 25mm wild rose, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, 8mm semi open roses, 4mm rose buds

I will be back later with the candy winner.
