Birthday card

Evening all :)

My friend Catherine asked me if I'd make a card for her Gran's 90th birthday, so I made a few up for her to choose from; this is one of them - not the one she picked though :) I spent a lovely hour at her house this afternoon drinking tea, chatting and playing with her adorable Alaskan Malamute puppy Sansa, sooo cute! 

Anyway, here's the card :) I'm happy with how it turned out!

The image is one I just bought from Lili of the Valley, I really enjoyed colouring her in! The swirl is a Cheery Lynn one, the pearls are from Ribbon Girl, the ribbon, gems and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the charm is from my stash. The papers are from the Nitwits/LOTV pad Promises - I love this pad! The sentiment I printed off the computer and the doily is from stash too.

A closeup of this gorgeous girly, coloured with Promarkers and I put Glossy Accents and Stickles on there too.

A closeup of my flowers, all Stickled up too :)

Bow and flower charm :)

I made a box for it too! I've not made many boxes before at all, only one or two, but with all the flowers on this, I really had to. I figured out some measurements for myself and it worked pretty well, so I'm happy!

I'll be putting up the other cards I made for Cat to choose from in due course, this being the first :)
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking :)
