Raining Birthday Wishes

Morning All
Hope you are well and fine on this Saturday morning.  I have been a lover of Teddy Bo images for a long time now even though I do not use them as much as I would like!!  So, I was over the moon when I discovered the artist had brought out a new range of images called D'Arcy's Diaries - you may have seen the red, black and white card I made using one of these adorable girls - see post here. Now there is even more good news.......a D'Arcy's Diaries Challenge!!!! I just had to make a card for this and here it is.............

Isn't she just adorable. Love her frilly brolly!  I have used some of my favourite papers and my Memory Box corner die which I really, really love. Expect to see this on many more cards - lol !!  

And of course, the close-up shot.

Medium - Promarkers and Victorian Velvet DI
Papers - MME Lost & Found "Blush" - so yummy
Die cuts - Memory Box Madera Corner and Rounded Fence
Lace - Ribbonbox
Sentiment - Whiff of Joy

I hope you like my little card and thank you so much for taking the time to look. Have a great weekend.
Denise xx
