Hello - hello!

Hi everyone! I bet you thought you had heard the last from me?? I am sorry that I have been missing in action. I have been working on cards - just wasn't able to post any until the dates of the occasions had passed. So in the next week you should see a couple more.
This card I made for Glenda - those of you in the Magnolia-licious group will recognise her name. She is my friend and lives about 5 minutes from me :o) Glenda's Birthday is on May 4th, but she opened her card this morning as she won't be home next week.
This was a White on White Challenge from 'Sassy Cheryl's' group - but I really wanted to make a Magnolia card with it.
Details: Tilda with Gifts # 249 from Diana; Frosted Lace Stickles on apron lace - both sleeves and bottom as well as on purple dots on gift; various Cuttlebug Folders; razor blade on edge with image and on inside sentiment; white hand embroidery thread; SU small tag punch; SU white silk ribbon; MS white large and medium pearl, sentiments computer generated.
Here is the front of the card:
A peek at the details:

Have a great rest of the weekend.
