My latest card is for my Daughter's Friend Lauren who will be 8 years old in May.  I've used the lovely Isabel's Bouquet image from artbymiran and coloured her with my Spectrum Noir markers.  Find the image here
The card itself is made out of pale green and pink card which are perfect colours for a Spring birthday, hope she loves it
Spectrum Noir colours used:
skirt/bow - DG1,2,3
Top - PP1,2,5
Bouquet - LV1,2,3
Flowers - CT1,2,4 and OR3
Hair - EB1,3,7
skin - FS1,3,4
Dies used:
Marianne collectables
Spellbinders Nestabilities
Cheery Lynn Designs
Tattered Lace


I adore these images drawn by Mi Ran, I've had a few recently that seem to fit with a lot of the family/friends cards that I'm making.

The card design is another box that folds flat so that you can slip it in to an envelope if you don't want to make a box :)

I love the way that the flappable (if that's a good word for them) sides literally fall into shape when the box is opened out.

A side view

Another side view :)

And a little close up of the tiny embellishments.  I used a Crafts-Too die called Butterfly garden on the inside of the box and used the little butterflies on jewellery wire to decorate around the rest of the card.  Such a sweet little die that's becoming one of my favourites :)

This is how it will sit in the envelope/box
