Birthday card for my Beautiful 'Belle

Hi folks!
My twins are 4 today..., where do the years go? I can't believe that they start 'big school' in September. Here is the card I made for Isabelle. Will share Ben's tomorrow. Another late night crafting for these babies.
I followed some challenges which really helped me to focus on what I needed to do. The sketch is from Just Magnolia. It's their launch week and I just had to join in (looks like everyone else in blogland is having fun with this sketch too :o) Cute Card Thursday is asking to see flowers. Over on the Saturday Challenge they want us to create a scene. Lastly my dear and uber talented friend Chris Dark has set the challenge over on Colour Create which is to use Pink, Black and white with the option of polka dots. A delish colour combo I 'm sure you will agree.
So 4 challenges for a four card for a little girl who is turning 4.... (fork handles anyone?...tee hee)
Back tomorrow with bonny Ben's card.
Ciao for now!
Sandra xx

Wow Sandra this is beautiful. This magnolia is one of my favourite ones and I just love the bench. Your daughter must be thrilled with it - one to keep for her for when she is older!
