Birthday Girl.

I can post this now as it is my DIL's Birthday today.  Happy Birthday Mrs N.
The backing paper is by Nancy Watt 'Pretty Pansies' free in Making Cards magazine.
The digi is called  Playing Dressing Up by Emma Canning available from here. I have paper pieced her dress, socks, shoes, bows and the little flower.  Dress paper is by Prima 'Botanical' free in Simply cards and Papercrafts. Digi coloured using Promarkers and Pearlescent chalks. Wardrobe and image edged round using a gold highlighter pen.

The little flowers are the snippet offcuts from the tonic punches I mentioned in a previous post. 
I had enough of each of the papers left over  to make this little gift  folder to go in with the card. (This is the tonic punch that makes the little umbrellas on the card posted  below).

Entering into the folowwing challenges:
Dream Valley: Happy Birthday.
Challenges 4 Everybody: Anything goes.
Bearly Mine: Anything goes.
Totally Gorgeous: Spring Shades.
Sweet Stampin: Pastels
Hiding in my Craft room: Use your scraps.

  3. Wonderful card and gift folder Mrs A - absolutely gorgeous! So pretty!

    I think we truly need to dub you 'Queen of the tiniest snippets' - it's May Day soon so we'll do that when the maypole dancing is going on. I believe Hettie is going to whip the girls into shape on ribbon weaving round the pole! Or was that lace making?

    Sigh, still in recovery here.

    Hugs, Di xx
