A Great British Birthday!

Good afternoon. Hope you are all well and those not I wish a speedy recovery. Thanks to everyone for all your lovely Happy Birthday wishes yesterday - I had a lovely day made all the more special with your kind words and I received so many gorgeous cards and gifts from some of my lovely DT and blogging buddies - I have put some photos at the bottom of this post :o)

So today's share is a card I have made using a new download I got from Nitwits with some of my Birthday pennies - 'Tour of London' available here 
I have teamed the fabulous papers with one of my scrummy new Saturated Canary images too - 'Nevaeh' available here
I just love the hair and clothes Krista gives these stunning images.

Image coloured with Flexmarkers and PM's

I have been working on my shading and I quite like how this how turned out :o)

The fab heart with ribbon & button is one of the embellies in the Nitwits FBQ and I added a real button over the top :o)
Sentiment was a freebie from a craft mag a while ago with a few co-ordinating adhesive gems.
A few buttons in red, white and blue to finish it off.

This will eventually be sent to Katy (Lola's mum) as she loves anything patriotic/London so will be right uop her street :o)
