Here is my design team inspirational piece however please do hop over to see the rest of the teams wonderful creations
I made another 8 x 8 inch Birthday card, use these for the team at work, they come in so handy.
Base layer and contrast is black.  The papers are again from the Bloomsbury collection available at Grimsby Crafts. The feathers are from a local department store Ostrich I believe.  Pale pink on this occasion and carefully cut from the main stem and glued around the back of the base of the Go Kreate large heart.  The smaller heart has matching papers from the same stack.  Marianne dies for the floral fronds and Wild Orchid white flowers distressed with TH spun sugar. Little bow from Papermania collection.  Black pearls from the Hobby House and sentiments computer generated to suit the image and purpose of the card

Here is a close up of the all important House Mouse Image, called "Beauty Day" available here at SSS coloured in copics to match the card.  
I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.
