A Birthday Card & gift

Hi it was my aunties birthday on Sunday.

I was looking through my computer at all the digital images i had.. and spotted Wryn bloom from tiddly ink. and though it was perfect for her. I colored her in using pro markers  added silver liquid pearls & lavender dewdrops around the image. I idrew Faux stitching around the image with bright green promarkers. I then found the perfect papers and card to match and inked all the papers and card. I added lots of flowers, i colored the orange and purple ones with promarkers. And inked the big rose and cherry blossoms. i added glitter glue, I then added ribbon, lace, button and twine. I added a computer generated name sentiment and then added a sentiment from tiddly ink to.
