Birthday Lily

This is the first card I have made since being ill and I really enjoyed making it even if my back did hurt a bit! I have made it for one of my longest blogging buddies {longest meaning I have 'known' her for the longest not that she is long!} Ruth. I have used the very cute By LORi Designs Puddle Jumpers 'Birthday Lily' and coloured her with Copics; I have added glitter to the balloon and the spots on her dress using my Spica pen {very subtle but pretty! you can just about see this in the photos}. I have cut her out with a Nestabilities oval and 3'd the balloon. A Nestabilities scallop oval cut with black Doodlebug CS and the image panel added to the base with 3d foam. The base is a piece of black CS adhered to a white card balnk with 3d foam again then a sheet of Posie Pink DB CS added on top which has been run through my Cuttlebug using the new Stampin' Up! Square Lattice embossing folder which can be purchased from the lovely Jules. I have then wrapped around with TRG Siam Pink Seam Binding and Liquorice Black Devine Twine . I have then added a Craftwork Cards Tiny Sentiment with a SU! Rose Red Designer Button and more Devine Twine. Finished off with tiny black pearls.
