Happy birthday Sylvia

This is the birthday card i made for my daughter.
While out shopping with my daughter at Christmas, she was buying a friends daughter a colouring book, i happened to say i liked the images, so without me knowing, she also bought one for me.
Who would have thought at my age i would get a colouring book from "Santa"
I decided to make my daughter's birthday card using one of the images i knew she liked, i hope you like the result.
 
Now here's the easy bit.
Items used.
Colouring book.
Promarkers.
Computer.
Cheery Lynn Designs Die (Flower)
Red Gem Stone (from my stash)
Kanban Card.
White Cardstock.

  12. This is a beautiful card Sylvia. I love the image and flower embellishment and the colours youve used. I like colouring, its very therapeutic and if its in a colouring book and not to go on a card, no pressure to get it just right. Sounds like a plan for me to practise!! Wendy xx
