A little birdie

I'm back again with a second post for today. The other two cards I posted earlier were made yesterday but I made this one this evening and managed to photograph it before it got dark. The only trouble with A5 cards is that you cant see the card as well as square ones on the blog. The weather forecast for the rest of the week doesn't look good, lots of rain and still only about 19 degrees. I've never known August to be so awful.

My card is for an order for a lady at work whose friend will be 90 on Thursday. The sweet image is a digi from Robyn's Fetish. To achieve the effect on the flowers I coloured them with Promarkers and then used the blender pen on the petals. The 90 is a PB stamp and the butterfly was made with an X cut punch. I just love this colour combo at the moment, pink and blue with a touch of burgundy. Papers are from various Papermania packs.
