The Ribbon Girl Magnolia Only Challenge *GDT*

This feels so strange, but I can now announce that (pending on my final grades)
I have finished school! I now hold the title in Norway called
adjunkt, meaning I am a teacher with four years of higher education.
I have to say, I am proud of myself. I actually made it!
Jobhunting is so far not looking up, it was a bit of an anti climax
when I delivered my very last exam for this time, and realised
I am no longer a student, I am simply unemployed.
So I have called around and are on the lists when there are need for subs,
and have applied for every available position.

Today I want to show you a card I made as guest designer 
for one of my favourite stores/blogs, The Ribbon Girl!
This Magnolia Only Challenge we want to see birthday cards.
Easy peasy, and perfect too, as there are some comming up that
I need to get cards ready for.

Ribbon Girl goodies used: 

Tilda was colored With Distress Reinkers,
This time I kept it light. No shading anywhere
ecept her hair. And I still dont like the curls,
they are just impossible. But I guess I have not practiced
my coloring that much lately either.
I added a lot of Star Dust Stickles,
of course. 

I used a letter A charm, and a doily. 

The sentiment is from Papirloftet,
it used to be my favourite scrap store,
but it closed a while ago. 

I got myself some of those paper straws on Ebay,
and I made them into flagpoles using pins from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I love that lace, so I added some on the flags.
