DT Post for Whoopsi Daisy: Christines card

Good Morning all - well if the weather forecast is true to its word we should be having a very warm and sunny day here in Lancs. Fingers crossed!

Today over at Whoopsi daisy ( there is a new challenge starting - its called 'For a special Lady'. I've made a card for my aunty Christine whose birthday comes around in June - so not long now.

The image that I have used is from sheet 446 and you can get her here. I've coloured her with promarkers and fussy cut her then added her to my favourite spellbinders oval die. The paper is some old paper from my stash - its got all sorts of travel items on it and came in a kit with some 1920's/1930's ladies in it that have since been used up. I've added a birdcage cut from a marianne die and the bird inside is a spellbinders die. The flowers are WOC and the ribbon is some beautiful glittery ribbon that I found in a shop in Morecambe.
