50th Birthday commission

I was asked to make a 50th birthday card for one of Angela's friends - Hi Angela if you're reading this, I hope you like what I've done!

I decided to go big and bold with this one...

Image: Shine Miss Anya from the Greetings Farm, coloured with promarkers; saffron for the skin to give her a bit of a tan, blossom and rose pink for the top, magenta for her bow and sun specs, cinnamon and cocoa for her skirt, sandstone, cinnamon, umber, raw sienna, cocoa for her hair.

Paper is Pebbles Inc, pink satin ribbon I won in Fran's blog candy recently, flowers are punched with the EK Success retro flower punches from Pebbles Inc paper and from a free polka dot paper from Simply Cards and Papercrafts magazine and embossed. Papermania brads and the numbers were cut from gold mirri card and embossed with the happy Birthday folder in the cuttlebug.

And as ever, here's Anya's close-up...
