A FEMININE BIRTHDAY CARD

I recently won two images from Delicious Doodles, and one of the images I chose is featured on my card:


I printed the image onto (very absorbent) watercolour paper, and coloured with my Copics:


I used pink and green CS mats and a cream CS base.  
The ribbon is cream satin, and the emellishments are punched, shaded with Copics and embossed.

The sentiment is a peel off.

Thanks for stopping by today.
