and all of us on the team have been sneaking around for weeks organising something special for her, so I'm hoping she has it by now and will be posting it on her blog today.
This is the card I made for her, and I'm actually quite chuffed with it, I was going to be evil and plaster a huge 40 on it, but then I decided not to in case she sacked me lol
Oh did I mention that she's 40 today? haha, she is so gonna kick my bum lol
Image; WS Dahlia from TGF, coloured with promarkers; Tan, Caramel, Cocoa and Umber for her hair, Blush for her skin, Mulberry and Plum for her tights, Pink Carnation, Fuchsia, Cerise and Amethyst for her clothes and flowers.
The image and mat were cut using labels 9 nesties in the cuttlebug, all papers are Basic Grey Bittersweet, and the branches and mat are also cut from the same paper. The flowers were made with EK Success retro flower punches from the Bittersweet papers, and I punched the petals of the large flowers with the MS doily lace border punch. Which I also used to punch the edges of the papers on the left. The flower centres are craftwork cards card candy. The greeting is Daisy & Dandelion and the gems are coloured with cerise promarker.
Here's a close up of Dahlia and the flower...
