Happy Birthday to you....

Another rainy day here...what can I say!! These are new Echo Park papers which I bought last week so I thought today was as good a time as any to use this one was a bit of a disaster but I think I have rescued it....I bought one of the pearl pens from Quixotic and added this to the corners...then I forgot I had done that and stuck my thumb right on I had a brainwave!! i thought I will wait until it is dry an then pick it off...only thing it took some of the paper off too so I had to make the dots slightly bigger than had wanted but I think it looks ok. I have coloured Brigitta and the fence with copics...Brigitta is from All That Scraps and the fence is from Pollycraft. I distressed the edges of the paper and around the circle and added a message which was in my flowers!! I have entered this card in the challenges below...remember I have candy..

Hi Fi,
Love this. What a lovely little image and like how you have made her standing by the fence scene, clever you!
Those papers are gorgeous and the sentiment is really nice too.
Cannot see you have made any mistakes, you have done a beautiful job.

What mistake?! I can't see anything, it's lovely! I'm impressed bt how "round your pearls are. When i use liquis pearls it always ends up with a pointy top! Are those pens easy to use? Might get one if they are
PS it's pouring down here too. My hair looks like I've been electrocuted.
