Birthday Card

Evening all :)

I'm super tired today, from time to time I go through patches where I get really bad, horribly vivid nightmares, and I'm going through one now, so haven't had a proper night's sleep in a few nights...I get the nightmare then I'm so afraid afterwards that I can't turn the light off and don't go back asleep properly at far this time, I've dreamed I got bitten by a snake and I dreamed last night that my boyfriend got blown up. So yeah, not conducive to great sleep lol.

A break from Christmas cards for me, my aunt's birthday was yesterday, and I made this card for my mum to give her. It's only the second ever Easel Card I've made, I really like them though!

Ribbon, Twine and Lace: Ribbon Girl
Charm: Ribbon Girl
Punched leaves: Martha Stewart Frond Punch
Dies: Spellbinders heart die
Papers: MME - Lime Twist (I think)
Medium: Promarkers
Everything Else: Stickles, Glossy Accents

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks Challenge - Make It Like Pops (shape, layout, turquoise colour)

Thanks for looking :)
