Tilda Birthday Card

Oh dear, I definitely don't seem to be keeping up with the challenge blogs this week. I am blogging my 2nd card this week that isn't for a challenge and I am worried.........do you think I am poorly? lol! This card is actually A4 in size hence the brads down the spine holding two sheets of A4 card together. The only stipulation I was given for this card (its for a lady at work) is that her friends name 'Larnie' should appear across the top of the card in BIG lettering, the rest was down to me. I've chosen design papers from Shabby Princess and my Tilda image has been coloured in using my trusty pro-markers and then cut out and mounted with 3D pads onto a square scalloped nestie. Flowers, brads, buttons and ribbon are from my craft box and the 'Hello My Friend' sentiment was created on the PC. Thanks for popping in today :)

Fantastic card Donna, I'm sure the lady at work will love it! Such a gorgeous Tilda and your colouring is beautiful. Love the paper and colour scheme too. I think your idea to hold the A4 card together with brads is brilliant and it looks good too. Good luck in keeping up with the challenges but I think it's mission impossible, well it is for me anyway LOL! Have a great weekend. Chris x
