Happy Birthday

Hello folks

A little while ago I bought the new Tonic magazine, mainly to see what free gifts were included and whether it was worth the £12.99 price tag. The die included was substantial, the papers were of a good quality and the stamps stamped perfectly everytime. Two embossing folders were included but I haven't used them yet. The magazine itself is packed with ideas on how to use your free gifts and there are only a few adverts. I would definetly consider buying this magazine again.
Here is one of the cards I made using the magazine and it's free gifts - 
I have used - 

  • free gifts from Tonic Design Collection magazine issue 1
  • Tattered Lace pearl flourish 8
  • Sara's signature collection - English Country Garden grand floral die
  • Tonic layering circles and scalloped circle die sets
  • gem from my stash

In the magazine the card had a ribbon bow on it but I decided to add a few die cuts instead.
Even the sentiment came with the magazine.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge - 

Thank you for stopping by today
