A Birthday Card for a Friend!

Hello! today's card is a birthday card for a friend - and I was very excited that it fit a challenge. I feel like it has been years since I have taken part of some of my favorite challenges - I think this one fits perfect to this weeks Tilda & Friends ATC Challenge - now I had to add the "May Flowers" to the grass at her feet, but they are there! This is a retired Stampavie Rachelle Anne Miller Lily and Kitty - love her, heck I love the kitty! I colored her with my Copics, rounded the corners and matted on a pattern pink paper, most of the papers I used were scraps.. love that!

I rounded the corners on all the pieces, and sewed down with a opalescent pink thread, I used a dark pink satin ribbon across the middle. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and it and the Rubberstamp Tapestry flowers are stamped on the back side of a K&Co. name card - I have a few of these and the colors never match what I am working on... and for some reason out of the blue I thought... hey turn it over and use the white side! Duh!
Well I hope my friend liked the card - and I hope the ladies at the Tilda & Friends do too... I am so happy I got to enter it!
Donkey update... still waiting and watching but I really don't think Lacey or Vicki will make it thru the weekend - I hope we have little ones bouncing around here really soon!
HUGS and have a great Thursday!
