Phyllis' birthday card

I am really on a roll today! I seem to have a lot of time for some reason. The rush to get ready for the Heart-2-Heart Stamp Camp was really intense. Then there was getting all the Christmas cards for family members done and mailed. Since Christmas I haven't had any really pressing things to take care of, so I've been making cards!!!

Here is another birthday card and it's even done early! This one is for my daughter, Phyllis. I've gone with a teal and brown color theme for this one. I love Lady Tilda for a more formal look.
So here she is -
The cardstock is from Stampin' Up! - Tempting Turquoise, Close to Cocoa and Marigold Morning.  Lady Tilda is mounted on Core'dinations Chocolate Box cardstock in teal.  After running the cs through the Cuttlebug using CB's Heritage set of embossing folders,  I then sanded off the brown with a sanding block.

Tilda was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers and cut out.

The designer papers are from My Mind's Eye Simply Delightful stack.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Magnolia.  I put a tiny rose over the stamped one in her hand.

The Copics I used:  Dress - BG18, 49, 45, 01, RV000, 00.  Hair - E25, 31, 50.  Skin - E11, 000, 00,  R21.  The tiny rhinestones at her neck are by Crystal Stickers.  The tiny pearl in her hair is from the stash.  The lace on her dress is colored with a Gelly Roll Clear Star pen. The detail on her hair ribbon is done with a gold glitter pen.

Here is the inside of her card -

These are the same cardstock and dp's as on the front.
The ribbon and lace are from my stash.

The sentiment panel is cut from SU's Crumb Cake cs with Nestabilities Labels Ten die, edged with Tempting Turquoise ink.  I added a rose bud from Hooked on Crafts just to dress it up a bit.

This will be going in the mail tomorrow to my daughter.

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting with me.  Hope to see you again soon!

Beautiful card!! Love the colors you have used!! You are not the only one that sends out cards late, I can never seem to get them out on time. Don't worry it just extends the celebration, that's how I look at it anyway. :)
Hugs, Kim
