Green grats

I've made a rather small card to wish someone a happy birthday - not telling who I'm sending it to!

I've used the sketch from Mojo Monday, papers are Wild asparagus (I love them, yes I do), the dew drops are a gift from Susie and Tilda is coloured with distress inks (the dress is a mix of peeled paint, weathered wood and antique linen to get the nuance to match the papers).

Other challenges:
A spoon full of sugar - beads
Creative Card Crew - celebration
Just Magnolia - birthday
Secret Crafter Saturday challenge - stitching
Creative inspirations - monochrome
The Pink elephant - add green

This is gorgeous, love the papers & soft colours.

I've just posted off the papers which I had from Carly, I put them to one side to be posted weeks ago and to my horror only found them this morning, so sorry for the delay but they've now been sent on.
