Birthday presents

A little later than usual with a card today. I was busy making samples for Crafter's Companion yesterday and made a start on this one. Just finished it off after doing some housework so here I am sharing  with you. I've gone for nice clean lines for this sweet Sugar Nellie image. She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with some Sakura purple and silver pens fora bit of shine.I thought it was time for a purple card so I used Papermania Boysenberry papers. I used my MS doily punch and added some gingham ribbon, pearls, MS rose leaf and frond punches and Wild Orchid flowers. Three of those Memory Box die cut butterflies have sneaked in there too.
