Aqua B'day Card

 
This birthday card is for my friend Regina.  We went to uni together and now she lives at Coffs Harbour in NSW.  For this card I used a digi image "Lily" from the Digi-Stamp Boutique.  I coloured her with Stampin' Write markers.  I did lots of dots in different colours to colour her dress and hair ribbon and then used kindy-glitz over the top.  I used a SU punch and some white lace down the centre of the card.  The card colours are Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa and SU DP.  The ribbon, button and flowers are all from my stash.
I would like to play along with the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Don't be Square
Stampavie and More - Lace and Button
S2G Challenges - Spring has Sprung
2 Sketches 4 You - Sketch (but missed the cut-off)

I spent most of the day at my Sister's house today...but her girls were not well and then came home for lunch and to do some washing and blogging.  The sun is out and shining today after yesterday's rain.  But you can certainly feel the change of season coming.  I hope you had a lovely day today.  Thanks for visiting : )
