new birthday card

I had a chance to make a birthday card today and thought I would share it with you. I kind of elaborated on the sketch challenge from "Roses on Paper". I made this card a standup  and it opens a bit differently. That is the reason for all the photos. Hope you like it. I used the most amazing stickers I found in my stash! They are clear and sparkly - couldn't tell you where I got them. Sorry. I also colored this Tilda awhile back so again, I can't give you colors. I did figure out something though. I am using that sparkly paper and finally figured out that there has to be a lot of light in the room and you can't be too close to the card or the flash reflects and you have nothing. I love coloring on this stuff so I am thrilled that I have the photography figured out at last. I am back on track, I think! Here's a hug for all of you! Barb F
