Magnolia Monday #5! - Happy Birthday with Picnic Tilda

EDITED TO ADD Picked in the Top 3 at Partytime Tuesdays!. Thanks!!!!!

First I have to say a huge congrats to The Dallas Mavericks!!!! Actually it means one sport is over in our house for a while, surely to be taken by The Queens Club final today and then Wimbledon :)

It's a new week and you know that means another Magnolia Monday!
Today I'm taking it outside with the super sweet Picnic Tilda and Butterfly Background.
I masked the two together and used a stair step style card for something a little different.
I'd love for you to add your Magnolia creation to my InLinkz below so I can come and leave you some love! Remember the post must be dated Monday June 13th to be linked up.

Paper - Lime Twist Fly a Kite by My Minds Eye
Medium - Copic Markers
Roses - Prima
Balloons - The Paper Studio
Fence Die Cut - Cheery Lynn Designs Picket Fence
Border Punch - Martha Stewart Scallop Dot
Embossing Folder - Sizzix Flowers
Sentiment - Birthday Wishes by Karen Foster Design
Decorative Pin - Leaf Trinket Pins by Maya Road

I don't use a lot of orange usually but when I do it always makes me happy.
I've been using the Lime Twist paper pads by My Minds Eye a lot recently, I just love the scale of the patterns and how well they work on my cards. I wish more paper companies would do the 6" by 6" pad as I have an addiction to them, I bought a dozen of them at The Great American Scrapbook Convention last week and am still itching for more ;)
I hope you like today's Summery Magnolia creation and will link up yours so I can come and see it.
And please mention it in your post if you can so we can grow and keep sharing the Maggie Love!
