Birthday Girl

Well the day is here.Today is my daughter's 18th birthday. I struggled to make this card. The papers,the image....not knowing what I was gonna do.I wanted it to be special so I put a lot of pressure on myself. I think maybe because I didn't want her to turn 18 lol.

So onto my card...I used an image from Make it Crafty.I love this girl but she took me forever to color with my copics...and I'm still not that happy with it. I struggle with getting the shading proper. But hey we all have to critique our own. Even as I look at this pic ,it is a much darker purple...me taking bad pics.lol


I made this an easel card. I used Bo Bunny papers " Enchanted". Now I have all sorts of embellies on this card.lol.Yep me piling it on again ! 
Now the spray of embellishment is  flowers,feathers,Prima and WOC flowers with Tim Holtz film strip.I made the  big purple flower out layers of flowers . I painted them with Lindy Stamp Gang Mica Magicals. The dies and border punch are from Memory Box, Sizzix and Martha Stewart.


Some more close ups.....



I am entering the following challenges ..

Wow! Pure gorgeousness Tanya! The colors are just stunning! Why am I yelling?!
Beautiful card. I'm sure your daughter will love it. I'd include a little shadowbox frame to put it in later. It's worth preserving for so many reasons!
Fabulous work.

Just gorgeous. I love it. Your colouring is stunning, the shading perfect and the black gothic feel is stunning, hope your daughter had a great Birthday....I sympathise with you, when they get to 18 you feel it don't you, they don't need you as much!!
