Happy 40th Birthday to Catherine (Sweet Escapes image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I created this card for my gorgeous sister-in-law who just turned 40. This beautiful image from Sweet Escape actually looks like Catherine so it was a perfect girl to colour and create with. I used many dies - feathers, sun, banners, ovals and cut out some of the background paper flowers to add on the other layers. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
