Happy Birthday Michele

Michele, one of my fab PfP teamies celebrated her birthday last week, and even though I was a wee bit latchy in sending her card I'm hoping its arrived by now.
And before I forget you must pop over and see her new blog that she's set up for selling her fabulous handmade flower embellies - there's a huge amount of work goes into them and they're terrifically priced. You'll just have to have them.
So here's the card I made for her...

Image: Manga Girl from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers: Mulberry and Plum for her hairand boots, Blush for her skin, Arctic Blue and Sky Blue for her top and bow,  Baby Pink and Ice Grey 3 for her tights and sleeves. The image and mat were cut using Labels 7 nesties in the cuttlebug, the mat is core'dinations card.
The spotty paper is from the pink xmas DCWV stack, the pink panel is whitewash core'dinations card run through the cuttlebug with the paisley embossing folder and I've torn one side to expose more of the core colour and sanded.
The large flower is from craftwork cards and the smaller one is punched with the EK Success retro flower small punch from core'dinations card. The oversized gem is from my stash, the branches were punched from core'dinations card. The 3 gems at the bottom were coloured with Plum promarker and the greeting is a Hero Arts stamp cut out with oval nesties.

And here's her close-up...

 Hope you had a super day Michele xx
