Beautiful - Oriental Woman

Well the weekend has nearly finished - close to midnight here, We've had a cold, rainy day and I've had my 3 grandchildren this afternoon until about 7 p.m. Unfortunately the eldest, Amelia, was running a temperature, but the two girls still managed to watch a DVD while I fed their little brother, changed him and got him back to sleep. He was very easy to look after!
After they went home about 8 p.m., I managed to get this card finished. It's on a black basecard, with a pink matte and then a gorgeous piece of paper that my friend, Joyce, gave me for my birthday. The image was stamped on white card and coloured with Real Red Ink and all the flowers etc were coloured with Jelly Roll Pens and look quite sparkly even though that doesn't show up here in the scan well. I tried to colour the flowers with the colours that were in the fans in the background paper. I cut her out and mounted onto a pink Nestie die cut, added the sentiment "Beautiful" also in Real Red and did the "Happy Birthday" onto pink card cut it out with a circle punch, matted with black circle as well and then glitzed it up with lots of bling
Well here it is, I'm going to enter it into the Make It Monday linky party challenge tomorrow.
Hope you have a great week,
Take care,
