Happy Birthday, Lisa!

I'm using this post to wish my friend, Lisa, a very Happy Birthday today . . . she has stuck with me through thick and thin, good times and bad, a true friend!

Here's the card I made for her.

I had such fun colouring the background (whilst simultaneously watching Dr. Who, lol) using a combination of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils which I absolutely love now.  Only trouble is with me is knowing when to stop adding and when enough is enough!!

I was so pleased with it but then I had to cover most of it up with putting Tilda into place leaning out of the window but never mind I think she looks brill !

The inside of the card is a repeat of the front but I glittered it with Hunkydory Fairy Wishes glitter.

A close up of the image, I can't quite remember which Tilda this is but I know she is a fairly recent addition and I'm pretty sure she was in the Magnolia Stamp Club package.

The designer paper is from a pad which I've had for a really long time . . . it's an oldie but a goodie . . . Papermania Equisite .

I just love this ready made frame paper and my new nestie fitted perfectly into the design.

The paper flowers are from Prima and I placed a pink pearled brad into the centre.

The gold leaves were made using the Marianne Creatable die "English Rose".  I was going to use the roses to embellish the card but decided against it . . . although the flowers did turn out quite well.

Just one more close up, lol, I'm so pleased with the colouring . . . I might never achieve it again (completely fluked it) so here it is recorded for me the next time I'm struggling with it, lol.  Perhaps watching TV at the same time is the key to it, :0)

I'm scheduling this post so I hope that it works and it doesn't appear too early.
