Birthday Girl Spring Flowers

Hey there!  Just a quick post to share a card I made specifically with a challenge in mind.  The Digi Bells are holding a blog hop challenge and I thought I would throw my hat in (and of course do a bit of hopping).

I decided to use this adorable image, which is called Little Rapunzel from Elisabeth Bell Designs.  The theme is spring flowers, so I thought she would be perfect with her beautiful flower and flowery shirt.

Here is the card I came up with...

I did the coloring with mostly flex makers, but also used promarkers for the green in the outfit and the flower stem itself.  The backing paper for the image is from Nigel May's new A-May-Zing CD and it was in the note paper section.  The bottom layer of the card is a paper by Nancy Watt which was in a back issue of Making Cards.   Nancy's papers tend to be ones that I hoard, but as I have vowed to use up at least some of my stash before buying new stuff, I thought I would use this lovely paper for this project.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from a Kanban set of sentiments and images and the ribbon is an adhesive backed ribbon that has been in my stash almost as long as I have had a stash!

I would also like to enter this card at:
Paper Playtime - Say it with Sentiments Theme - Birthday Card 
I Love Promarkers - Floral Image (use and image with flowers)
Wishcraft Waste Not Wednesdays - Used paper and adhesive ribbon from old stash
Celebrate the Occasion - Happy Birthday (must use ribbon)

Anyway, as this is already longer than I intended, I will quick rattling on and post this.  I hope you all like it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and please feel free to leave a comment if you are so inclined.  I love reading them!

Take care and I hope you visit again soon.

xx Denise
