Happy Holiday start!

Thanksgiving is officially behind us. Ours was so nice, hope yours was also. I did promise you that I had another card to post. My daughters are born within a couple of days of each other but 4 years apart. So this card is for the one that loves dolphins. For a change, this card just fell in place. Lately I have felt a bit brain dead when it comes to cards, but this one was easy. I got on my gypsy and found the neat things I wanted to cut out. Colored one of my fav Tildas and it just went! Hope you enjoy it. I hope she did also! Here are the copics: R05, R27, R20, E37, E35, E33, E31, E29, E00, E11, W2, C1, Y23, Y17. Lots and lots of stickles!!!Just have to have three things - stickles, ribbon and flowers!! The words/flamingo are on the Life is a Beach cartridge from Cricut. I actually paper pieced Tilda's dress and flower. That is a first for me. I just thought that the paper I used was perfect! The clouds were actually cut out of another patterned  cardstock!

The dolphin is layered - I chose to make one of those silver glittered! Hugs to you all, Barb F
I am thankful I have so many followers and more keep joining (to my complete amazement!)
