Happy Birthday...

Hi Bloggers,

Had a brill two days so far watching the Eastbourne Airshow (weather has been a bit poor though, no sign off this heatwave!!), going again tomorrow and sunday.....

Today's card is a Happy Birthday card with an Age on it, 11th birthday.

I have used aWhoopsi Daisy digi image(she looks so much like my Niece it is uncanny).  I have coloured her in using promarkers mostly yellows and limes.

I matted some lemon spotted (papermania) paper onto lime green paper then stitched all around, attached some green peel off 'Happy Birthday' greeting and a few flowers. I also embossed some foil with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and cut it out, coloured it slightly with some lime green and yellow alcohol inks. Stuck a thin piece of ribbon over the top and attached it to the card. Stuck some brown paper onto a die cut tag, then attached '11' chipboard numbers and stencilled the word 'today' using some sizzix white rub on's, also added a bit of ribbon. Finally attached the whoopsi daisy image.

I would like to enter this card into the following blog challenges
