A purple Birthday Card!

Hi, guys! This is my second post of the day, please scroll down to see my DT post for My Time To Craft.

A lovely friend celebrated her birthday today so I made this card. She is Indian, so I used different Promarkers than usual for the skin of this Elisabeth Bell cutie - sadly she no longer appears on the Whimsy Stamps site, but there are lots of other adorable images there!

The gorgeous papers have glitter and shine, they are New Bloom by First Edition. I used a Spellbinders die to cut the lacy mat behind the image from one of the papers. The flowers are cut with Spellbinders dies from the 'Floral Doily' set. The gems and ribbon are from stash, and the sentiment is Lili of the Valley.

I am entering the current challenge at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge which has a complex recipe:

1 image and 1 sentiment - check.
Two shapes - Circle and Square - check.
Three papers - two square backgrounds, and the third is used for the circular mat and the lower layer of flowers - check.
Four embellishments: three flowers and a bow - check.

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

PS Apologies for the naff photo, the colours are much clearer irl!
