Another birthday card

Awhile back I won "Comfy Tilda" from the All About You blog giveaway.  What fun!  I took this chance to ink her up.  I have been really busy redoing my studio.  Cleaning.  Purging.  Organizing. Designing.  (whew!) and I came across these papers that I had totally forgotten about.  How I love them!  I used several different patterns together with matching ribbon.  I thought the oval scallop die would go perfect with the oval die from Spellbinder's Nestability collections to showcase Tilda.  After I chose my papers I matched it up with my Copic colors for the perfect coloring combination.  That is how I do it every time I am making a card.  I used stickles for the wings to add much needed sparkle to my card.  I have been playing with a 2012 Honda CRV this weekend that the car dealership let me take home to test drive.  I am having so much fun toolin' around the neighborhood.  What fun it would be to sneak in a roadtrip! lol.  I never heard of a car dealership letting you take a vehicle home for a couple of days to test drive, have you?  I am seriously thinking about buying that SUV, it is so nice.  All sorts of bells and whistles.  I'm off to make another card but I wanted to share my second birthday card with you today.  Enjoy!  Love, Elle
