Carrie's Birthday Card

Today I have a birthday card for my daughter-in-law to share with you.  My son picked a big time winner when he chose Carrie.  She is a pure delight!

Her card features Tilda with a Big Bouquet.  The papers I chose are from Basic Grey's Konnichiwa paper pad.  I don't remember why I bought this particular pad because I'm not really into oriental anything.  I put it into the same category as the BG Lime Rickey papers - bright, colorful and not what I usually work with.

It was extremely difficult for me to work with these papers, but I do like the way the card turned out.


Tilda was colored with Copic Sketch markers.  The flower spray is from Jolee's Boutique purchased at Wal Mart.


The inside features two more of the Konnichiwa papers.  The sentiment is stamped on Tilda's Vintage Tag, layered to set it off from the background floral.

I am entering this card in Tilda's Town Challenge #34 Anything Goes.  It sure feels good to be back to entering challenges and making cards again after 3 months away!
