Happy Birthday Twinnie!

Iv'e made this card for my friend Gerry whose Birthday it is today. We used to work together
and coincidentally found that were we both born on the same day so affectionately  call ourselves "The Twinnies" Not only that but our respective hubbies have the same christian name !!!   (Another silly billions to 1 chance.)
This digi stamp from A Day for Daisies called Bewildered 'C' looks just like her. Gerry's hair always preceedes her into any room she enters so when it was released back in April I  just had to buy it in readiness for today. I have coloured the digi using my watercolour pencils and cut round the image and adhered to a doily. The backing paper is  a free scrapbook paper called Fashion Lady Collage which I found on this great site Free Vintage Digital Stamps.
Did I mention that Gerry is a bit of a Fashion Diva!!
The flowers are made using die cuts that the lovely  Nicola of Sunshine Reflections sent  to me when I mentioned to her that I couldn't get my hands on the new T.H. die because it was sold out. I have kept the flowers fairly flat as the card  needed to put in the post. Centres are tiny pink beads from my stash as was the pre printed sentiment and cream 300gsm cardstock.

Happy belated birthday wishes. Love this card.
Fleximarkers are made by same company as promarkers, but nibs are flexible a bit like a solid brush so they blend much easier when you use them.
