Shabby Chic Birthday Girl (Magnolia Ink image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's been a while since I've created with a Magnolia stamp as I usually tend to go for my digi images now but I thought I'd try using distress inks rather than my Copics. I think I'm a little better with my copics but I had a lot of fun trying this technique and I may try to do some more in the future especially seeing as I bought a million distress inks when I decided to give it a try haha!! I added the little flowers in her hair.
