Female Birthday @ TPC

Good Morning crafters,
Nearly the weekend, I hope you all have something nice planned.

A new challenge is beginning today with Cathy hosting & Team B playing along over at
Cathy has chosen:
Female Birthday
and would like to see sentiments/numbers on your creation suitable for the theme.

The challenge is sponsored by Inky Impressions 
The prize being a $10 gift certificate to spend in our on-line store.

The DT were given an image of their choice to make their card, I chose Fairy Sitting on Clothespin I love this image & couldn't resist using it.
I needed to make a card for my Mum from my Grandchildren Alisha(10 years) & Harvey(1 month). This was the ideal challenge so I took the opportunity & killed 2 birds with 1 stone.
The image was coloured with  markers & chalks, then glossy accents were added to the berries and glamour dust to the lace on the dress & the wings. The papers are some I've had forever & were free in a mag. The sentiment was computer generated which I decided to cut out separately in a fishtail shape. Organza ribbon was applied to the card base and a bow, with a pearly heart was added.

That's all from me today, got to get ready to go see the GP then to the hospital for my 2nd treatment.
Have a great weekend everyone!
