Another birthday card from me today for my Niece who is 14 in June.  I've used an image from artbymiran called Tulipa.  Find her here

I coloured her with Spectrum Noir markers (I'll have to add the colour list as I go because I can't remember all of them lol)

Tulips - DR7, DR5, CR11, CR4
Hair - BG7, GB10, 9, 7, 4, EB2

Cheery Lynn
Marrianne Designs

Flowers and other embellishments from my stash

The card was made following a tutorial out of the latest Crafter's Inspiration magazine from Rachel Anne Miller.  It's a slider card that conceals a money wallet.  I always give money now my Niece is older :) and wanted to incorporate that into her card.

A bit of a close up on Tulipa

Another of Tulipa, she is a stunning girl

I added an easel on the back of the card (each side) so that it will stand independently

This shot shows the card closed and ready to be boxed up :)
