Birthday Revisited (Part 1)-Moxie Fab Inspiration

Hey Everyone,

I'm back on the birthday bandwagon again today.  What can I say.  April is also another birthday filled month (yours truly included!)  Dare I say I was actually named after Queen Elizabeth herself as we share the same birthday.  Had it not been for a radio in the hospital room where my mom was after giving birth to me.  The DJ was wishing the Queen happy birthday and thus inspired my parents.  I might have been named Glenda or Stephanie otherwise.  Although, admittedly, I'm more of a Liz or Lizzie.  Short and sweet.  I imagine Elizabeths to be tall and sophisticated...so not me.  :/

Over at Moxie Fab World there is a Trigger Tuesday Challenge that popped up that added to the choice in papers for this card.  Here is the trigger:
These are magnolias.  We have a shrub of these in our backyard.  Gorgeous...but only for a few days and then a really big mess on the patio :(.  These pink flowers had me searching for pink flowered paper and then I came across this brighter pink patterned paper that I think fits with the image.  A fashionista kind of colour.  Loving how it came together.

The outline image is from Stamping Bella coloured with Copics.  I masked her and used a Hero Arts Friendship stamp for the background.  Stickles were used for the glittery goodness and the patterned papers are from DCWV.
I would like to submit this to the following challenges/blogs:
Moxie Fab World: Trigger Tuesday
Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog: Happy Birthday
2 Sisters Challenge Blog: Anything Goes
