A 'Maggie' Birthday

Hi All!  Just a quick post before I head to bed :)  I bought this gorgeous 'Congratulation Tilda' Magnolia stamp from ICopic recently and just had to put her to good use right away!  I've been trying to expand my coloring skills so I followed a tutorial by the amazing Zoe over at Make It Crafty on how to color folds/pleats in clothing and I do have to admit there were a few images that went straight into the trash bin but I feel like I'm getting better and am pretty pleased with how Tilda's dress turned out here.  I used the gorgeous sketch by Cheri over on the Pink {Ink} Sketch Challenge blog to pull the design together and had a blast (I love her sketches!).  I didn't end up putting to many embellishments on it (I know you're shocked- no gems!) because I wanted the image to take center stage.  Well, I guess that's about it as I hear my bed calling my name :)  I hope you enjoy!
