Happy Birthday to You

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Today I get to show you something that I have whipped up tonight, an brilliant way to wind down after a stressful day at work :)

Whilst catching up with my commenting I spotted a couple of challenges and a hop I just had to play along with.

The first one was the House Mouse and Friends challenge and Birthday celebration hop, now if you know me well you will know how much I adore these gorgeous little critters :), and the second was inspired by the very talented Kevin and his interpretation of the Sketch and Stash Sketch
So after tea I knew exactly what I wanted to do, so here is a girls birthday card, with those oh so pretty Wild Orchid flowers.
The base layer and contrast is a black pearlescent card, the papers are Papermania from the mono collection, the ribbon and hand created double bow is from the Hobby House as are the pearls.  The flowers from Wild Orchid and the lace and ribbon down the centre are from a local department store. I used Marianne Creatables for the foliage.
The outer edge of the image plate, front sentiment and inner sentiment have all been air brushed with V15 and then the edges have all been glittered with a fine clear glitter, this then picks up the colour of the spraying.  The image is also coloured in with copics. 
The flowers were all originally white, and again have been airbrushed with the V15 and stickles diamond added for that extra twinkle.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 400 follower candy.   For those of you that have not yet entered the 400 follower candy you can do so here

I still cannot believe I am at 493 followers, you guys are all amazing thank you,  if you are already follow me please don't forget to put your name in the hat :)
