Birthday Girl

I saw this  image the other day on
Mary Ellen Smith's blog
and fell in love with it straight away.
Image is called 'My Kitty' and this is the pre-coloured version.
I knew just who I wanted to make a card for too.
My good Blogging Buddy Miss Di.
Happy Birthday Di

I just happened to have the exact matching papers 
still out on my desk 'Wonderful Watercolours'
which came free in Making Cards magazine.
Ribbon and pearls from my stash along with the 
peach base card. 
White embossed dotty paper left over from 
making the flip flops the other day.

I decorated the insides  with more of the papers.
I have been itching to find a way to  use up those tiny
diamond shapes that come as the fall out from 
a lattice die. They have been on my desk forever.
They make excellant photo corners don't you think!!!
Sentimnet and heart shapes are gold stickers.

Too cute! And I've got those "been on my desk for ever" bits too LOL! Thank you for your kind comments Mrs A - I've found it impossible to find acetate boxes at a reasonable price in the UK.... but there's plenty in the US. Why do we always lag behind them with crafty stuff! :(
