Mini Monday - Best Wishes Birthday card.

It's HERE! Marvelous MINI MONDAY! I've been working hard behind the scenes and for the next several Monday's I will have a project for you to enjoy.
 I'm still doing the happy dance over being asked by Diana Crick to jump back on board and design for her. Thanks so much Diana mwaaah!
I'm very late posting this card, but I've had "one of those" kind of days.  For my first Mini project I have used Summer Flower Tilda. What I love the most about these little Mini's is that they're so versatile. This sweet image could be used for any occasion, except maybe a guy birthday! Heehee. This is an A2 size card.
Here is a closer look at my image.


To finish the inside of my card I used a stamp from Printworks Collections.  On my salutation I did some stitching, the pattern of which I though suited the DP I used on the front and inside panel.  Then I stamped the same image again in the lower corner using Memento London Fog ink.  I like the look.

Finally, here is my artsy shot. 

To make this card I used the following components:
Copic Markers,
Cardstock - SU Sage Shadow, Blushing Bride, Cryogen White
DP - Melissa Frances
Stamps - Magnolia Summer Flower Tilda, Art Impressions for the grass and flowers
SU sentiment on the front, Printworks Collections on the inside
Ribbon, brads, thread all from my stash
Inks - Distress Ink - tattered rose and weathered wood, Memento Tuxedo Black and London Fog
Punch - SU
