Enchanted Birthday

Actualy got round to making a Birthday card
 in time to mail to my niece this year.
I think children really appreciate a mailed card,
 even if your going to visit them anyway lol
She will be 7...*going on 17*

I knew I wanted to use this Graphics 45 paper, which makes a wonderful card front
 TPS challenge 276 is to add Ribbon and/or Lace 
and it just so happens one of my bargain buys over Christmas 
was a collection of ribbons,
  including some yummy coloured mesh ribbon
 I layered the mesh over a plain satin ribbon using double-sided tape.
This meant I could add glitter or mica powder for added shimmer.
 I chose this lovely image from TPS called "Cozy Winter Wishes"
 Coloured her with promarkers and cut her out,
added "waterfall" blue Stickles to her hat and scarf.
I  also highlighted areas of the background paper
with "diamond" Stickles
 and some golden yellow gems to the corners
Finally a big sparkly 7 for 

I am also working on several dt projects that are not cards
courtesy of a Poundland clearance shelf...
all 25p each!!!

Enjoy :D XXX
