Happy Birthday, Sis!

Hi everyone!
My card today is for my little sister's birthday, which is tomorrow. Well, she's not that little, she'll be 29 but she'll always be my little sister:) Love her so much! I hope she won't peek:) But since she's one of those who loves all my cards I don't think she'll be overexcited about this one:) It's not that sophisticated, but it's all in my comfort zone with papers and colors and stamp. So, why take chances?:))
I've followed the lovely sketch Bev has prepared for us at Just Magnolia and tried not to deviate from:). So I'll be just in time with my card for the challenge which closes this evening (well, my "evening":)).
For my card I chose Tilda with flowing hair from the Hoppy Easter Collection; I colored her with Promarkers but used copics for the skin (E00,51,R20). Hopefully I'll be having my new Butterfly Dreams collection next week. It is on pre-order at "Crafts you love", for my European friends. Then I hope I shall try my hand at some Easter cards:) Can't wait!!!!
Now, onto my card. Here it is:

I tried to keep simple the inside; well, at least I didn't add  too many flowers:)

Stamp: Magnolia - Tilda with flowing hair
Medium: Promarkers, copics for skin (E00, E51, R20)
DP: Cosmo Cricket - digital
Flowers; Wild Orchid Crafts
Embellishments: lace, ribbon from stash, pearls, charm from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, paper doily.
Misc: MD circle dies, scalloped circle nestie, distress ink, glitter.

Challenges for my card:
Charisma Cardz - Use Die Cuts 
Craft Us Crazy -  Cupcakes and/or celebration 
Crafty Purple Frog - Green 
Do You Stack Up? - Add a Bow
Meljens Designs -Use Dot's in your project
