Birthday Wishes

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Yesterday I got everything bar the ironing done, which I will do today after I have been to teach my class, I did not do it yesterday as I was crafting in my Beach Hut :)  such a fabulous excuse.

This is one of the creations I made yesterday, this is a Birthday card for the step mother in law, now please notice the totally different approach on this one, as this one definitely suits the occasion.  
Base layer and contrast on this one is black and I have used the Papermania Mono Collection papers, which are so very versatile.  I have used my around the page punch from MS once as an edge punch and twice as a corner punch.  The ribbon is from my stash as is the pearls and cheesecloth, the little corners are from Hobby House and flowers from Wild Orchid.  The image is from Tickled Pink and is called 
this is the digital version
She has been coloured in copics using the warm, cools, neutrals and toner greys, with a little clear gel sakuro glitter. Don't you just love working in monotones :)

Now if you have not noticed, although I am sure you have my new 600 follower candy has been posted and you can enter this here . I would like to welcome all my new followers  and wish all my followers luck in the 600 follower candy.   Just have to say you are all awesome thrilled to be over the 700 mark and looking forward to more candy buying:)

As always and very importantly I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments on my blog, allowing me to hop back over to see your own beautiful work. THANK YOU!! 

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges and thank Feline for your assistance as always
