Happy Birthday ...

Finally finished my gorgeous card using the Elisabeth Bell Simpler Times cd rom.
Just love this image and I have been waiting for along time to see it available to buy.
I was going to buy it in rubber but for the price of the cd which included my fav (this one)
plus 17 other digi's well I just had to have it.  Great value cd over I would say 60 papers
shaped cards, decoupage, sepia & black & white Polaroids and much much more.
I knew what I wanted to do and that was decoupage, stunning image and perfect for this technique.
I really enjoyed colouring this little cutie and I am very pleased with the light/shade
coming from the sunset.

I have used papers, doily, tag, sentiment, flowers, lace, ribbon.
All completely hand stitched as always and coloured with a combination
of Pro/Flexmarkers.  Final count I used something like 26 different pens?

This is my first pocket/tag card and the picture below shows the tag out!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges -
Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge - Spring Flowers (I Won Top 3)!
Bearly Mine Challenge - Lucky Dip (Die cuts, ribbon & flowers) (I Won Top 3)!
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Lots of Layers (I Won Top 5)!
