Autumn Birthday girl card

Hi and hope you're having a wonderful weekend and getting crafty on such a special day, World Cardmaking Day! 

I went crazy and created a couple of cards, one of which is this one using a gorgeous image from Milk Coffee Digis. I paper pieced her dress and gave her a little "path" to walk along, hope you like it. This card took me a long time, I had lost my mojo today but I didn't let it stop me, just had to keep rearranging my papers until I was happy. 

I used pearls from my company, Flourish with a Bling who is having a massive 50% off storewide (only excludes the value packs as they are already amazing value). Please feel free to email and query shipping if you are overseas as we only charge exact postage for international orders and sometimes they can be sent as letters if a small order. The sale is for the month of October only, I hope you'll check out our website.
