Birthday wishes...

Howdy folks....what a gorgeous day it has been today...I hope it stays like this especially tomorrow for the perfect end to the tennis especially when Andy wins...mon the Murray!!

So a friend asked me if I would make a card for her daughter who is going to be 13 years old, so there was special requirements...a bit of pink, long hair in a braid....and a bee....well think I managed them all and she liked it...phew!!

The image is from A Day for Daisies which I coloured with copics and shaded a bit with polychromos.  The papers are Echo park Country these!!  The sunflower has been cut with a die-namics die.  The numbers were in my stash, so I just inked them up and added some glitter and finished with some doodling and pearls.

Happy birthday Abby!!

A gorgeous card, Fi. I love the image, perfect for a teenage girl and the touch of pink looks fab against the blues in the DP. Will be cheering Andy on tomorrow! xx

Gorgeous and the little gal is going to love this! I like how you've extended the braid beyond the square - that looks so good, plus your fab colouring and design have made this a perfect card!
