Magnolia Hattrick - Just Magnolia, Magnolia Down Under and Totally Tilda

I have to post this quickly because hubby is fretting.  This card is for my little niece who will be turning 6.  Magnolia Down Under want us to make a "birthday card".  Her Mum told me that she (my niece, that is, not her mum) took the birthday card I made her last year and the year before to bed with her.  She was of course only 4 and 5 back then and she is a big girl now but just in case she wants to carry it with her up to her bedroom, I made a "shaped card" suitable for the challenge over at Totally Tilda.
All papers are K&Co and I used Fairy Tale Tilda as the main image.   Just Magnolia want us to use "acetate". So after colouring Tilda with Copics and Promarkers, I cut off her wings and restamped them onto acetate.  I glued the acetate wings behind Tilda and then the ones I had cut out behind the acetate. 
Lots of Stickles and gliter were used between the layers and on top to give them extra shine. I stamped Prince Philip the frog onto Shrinky Dinks and made a little charm and a tag to attach to the card which opens normally and stands up having been glued together at the handle. Gotta rush now. I'll link it today at Totally Tilda but I'll have to wait until tomorrow to do the other links... hubby is turning purple!

Well, aren't you the clever one?!!!! Making her wings acetate. GREAT idea. The purse is so cute and what pretty papers!
P.S. There was one time you left me like 3 messages and they all had to be monitored! What!!!? I have no idea, sometimes yours does that. Are you an undercover CIA or something? hee hee. When it shows it to me, I say yes to publishing, so maybe it will show up. Thanks anyhow for leaving them. I love to hear from you!
Hugs, Dena
