Crafty Shell's Birthday Card

My lovely friend Shell will be 40 next week and I made her this card! She now has it so I can post it. Every time I look at the image I laugh and in case you wonder when you read the sentiment I call her the dodgy scouser even though she has a Cheshire postcode you know!

Anyway here it is...........................

Image is from justinklined and is Maude from the wrinklies collection, papers are K & Co, doilies, flowers etc from stash. I coloured the ribbon with promarkers to get a good match. Image coloured with promarkers and prismas.

I have entered Maude in the following challenges:

Paper Play - ribbon, lace and flowers
Sweet Sketch #75 - sketch
Craft Your Passion - 2 of anything (2 bows)
My Time To Craft - roses
Freshly Brewed Challenges - 2 or more patterned papers

I hope you like it as much as Shell did, and I hope that Shell has a fantastic birthday!!!
