Special Birthday Card

I have made this card for one of my Best Friends at work. Her birthday is next Monday and I have bought her a little prezzy, but I wanted to make her a really nice card.

She is such a special Friend because she has overcome breast cancer for the second time and is now back at work again. She is so brave.

I decided to use my new Pirate Tilda image that I bought from the NEC. I do have pirate Edwin to match, but thought that both of them would look too much on this card. I used my new Bo Bunny Jasmin papers that I got from the Craft Den yesterday - they are gorgous and I think I may have to get some more!!! I coulured Tilda with my copics and I used my new Texture Boutique that Martin bought me to texture the two scalloped ovals I cut with my nesties. I bought two embossing folders from the Craft Den yesterday as I didn't have any to use my new machine!!! I just love it and the effect it gives.

To finish the card I used purple ribbon and matching flower. I then placed a lovely verse in side. I am really happy with this card and I hope my Friend likes it. I did intend to use the pirate images for childrens cards but I couldn't wait any longer and I just had to ink her up!!!!

I hope you like it! xxx
