Chloe's Birthday Card

I'm really bad at this blogging business - haven't posted since Christmas Eve - tut tut!  Anyway this card I made for my Granddaughters 7th birthday last week.  Oh my how time flies, it doesn't seem 5 minutes ago that she was born.  I coloured 'Tilda' with Copics which I discovered just before Christmas at a class at Sir Stampalot and I'm hooked - although I don't have many colours at the moment I will certainly be adding to them.  Her dress I stamped with an Art Impressions tiny flowers stamp.  I pleated paper for the left had side of the card which I haven't done before and quite like.  'Tilda' is mounted onto a doily (which I've had in my craft room for years and have only just started using, so never throw anything away!).  The swirls were cut using Cricut Cartridge Accent Essentials, I used a MS punch for the bottom borders, some flowers and ribbon from stash and a few gems.  Stamped happy birthday message and computer generated 7 today cut out with circle punch. Hope you like it!
