Happy Birthday

hello friends
hope you are all enjoying the start of the weekend. Thanks for all the comments on my latest cards and I hope you like what I have to share with you today.

This is another commission card. Here I have used a Lily of the Valley image which was free a while ago with Papercraft Inspirations magazine. This image is called Milly - here as always she is coloured with my copic pens.

I added glossy accent to the butterfly in her hair and the flower in her hand. I have cut her out using my cuttlebug and matted onto lilac cardstock again cut with a cuttlebug die. The swirls you can see were a very kind donation from Chris of ChrisAndCat fame on Docrafts.  The sentiment printed direct onto the cardstock base using a font called KatTail.

The butterfly is a punch as are the flowers. I added sparkly gems for effect. I think I maybe should have coloured the die swirls in. Not sure if they show up enough with them being white. What do you think?

Here is a close up of Milly so you can hopefully see the butterfly
in her hair. 

Thanks for dropping by today and I appreciate any feedback especially on the swirls!!

hope to see you again very soon
hugs always from me to you
