Birthday Card for a Friend

It is a good friend's birthday today - yes strange the day after mine - but hopefully she's got her card or if she hasn't yet because of the post she doesn't see it on here!!!  She's going through a bit of a time lately so I thought a nice bright card might help to cheer her up.  I used my newest Tilda stamp of Tilda dressed up in a lovely posh dress as I thought that was nice and girly.  I have coloured her in with Promarkers and highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen to add some glitter/sparkle.  I have used scraps of backing papers from my stash, even tearing one piece for a different edge which have been distressed.  Tilda has been mounted onto some green vellum, cream card and pink scrap of paper.  The card is finished off with some lace, ribbon bow, flowers, cord brad, sentiment off the computer and of course some blingy gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Incy Wincy - Anything goes
Creatalicious Challenge - Pink, brown and green
Pear Tree Designs - Celebration
Passion for Promarkers - Vintage/Shabby Chic
Everybody Art - Friends
City Crafter - Flowers and frills
The Creative Cottage - Bling it on
Crafty Calendar - Autumn birthdays and option of autumn colours
Stamp Something - Something to celebrate
Just Magnolia - Anything goes
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Open challenge
Paper Sundaes - Something from your stash - this piece of lace I have had for ages and ages and ages but never seemed to match my papers and even nearly had the attack of the Promarkers but thankfully it fitted in with the papers/embellishments for this card
Stamptacular Sunday - Layer it on - at least 5 layers
Totally Tilda - Glitter and Sparkle.
