Pretty birthday?

My goal here was to make a pretty birthday card for my dear friend. Hope I achieved it. Picking out this image was a for sure, as she had commented when I first got her that this Tilda was indeed her favorite of the ones I have. Next I knew that she loves blue. So here is the perfect paper (I think) and my copics just about jumped out of the case and into my hand! I recently got the cute banner from spellbinders and just had to use it. It was just a little too sedate, hence the stickles! I found awhile back that I just love white embossing on dark blue cardstock. See that cute lime flower? I cut a stem from another coordinating paper. Liked how that one came out. Just a little touch. I also used a gem for the center. Here are the copics I used: C1, C3, C5, C7, E00, E11, E57, YG03, YG23, R20, R35, R46, Y21, Y28, YR23, B0000, B12, B14. I used stickles to add some glitz to the cutout behind Tilda.
So using the same paper as on the front, I used a Martha Stewart punch (pansies) and added red and lime flowers to the ends of it. And the white embossing again. It is just so pretty. The red in the paper isn't photographing as bright as it really is. I hope she likes this card as much as I do!!! Guess I will be posting a lot in the next couple of weeks as that class is on for two weeks. Next birthday is also female. Here's a huge hug to all of you!! Barb F
