Birthday wishes.....


It's not very often I do a card "just because" these days but this is one of those times :-) Yeah! I got to play with all the pretty, girly stuff I've got in my collection.....

Charlie, my 2 year old, did "help" me a little bit so there are extra flowers in the top left corner to cover a little colouring he added (don't look too close!) - at least it matched the colour scheme!

I had a go at cropping my image to try to get rid of the background I always have but I think the picture looks a bit washed out now - what do you think? Maybe I need to spend a bit of time playing with it....

A close up so you can see all the glitter on her wings.....

I used:
Image - Magnolia
Sentiment - Daisy and Dandelion
Promarkers, glitter glue
Punches - Xcut lacey heart border, Xcut butterfly, Woodware large daisy, Xcut small daisy
Sizzix decorative swirl #2
Ribbon and pearls - stash
Brush marker for doodling

Just Magnolia - Happy Birthday
A Gem of a Challenge - Pearls and Swirls
Sketch Saturday - Fab sketch

That's all for now. Hoping to spend a little time in my allotment this afternoon.... Thankyou to those of you who have been kind enough to visit and leave me a little comment. It really makes my day :-) Back soon. Have a fab day!

Love 'n' hugs,

Ooooh, this is so cute! I don't think I've ever seen this Tilda stamp, but I love it!!! Your coloring is perfect too and those glitters look amazing. And so do those flowers on top. Perfect touch! :)

1st: I love the card, so perfect and beautiful!

2nd: I can't see where Charlie colored! You did a great job of hiding it, I have a layout my Patryk destroyed and I just couldn't salvage it. Great work on hiding the error :)
