Happy Birthday Sandy!

 This card is for my eldest daughter's twenty-ninth birthday.  The image is from Whoopsi Daisy.  I have collected quite a few of their digis.  This is actually the first one I'm using.  This didn't turn out quite as I had planned.  I think the decorations are too heavy on the right.  I should have done some on the left and not quite as much on the right.

The paper is from My's Mind's Eye.  I just received it in my monthy kit from Taylored Expressions.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I have been really pleased with their service.  Considering the order is shipped from England, it gets here pretty fast.

I sprayed the flowers with a glimmer mist.  It doesn't show very well in the photo.

I colored her with copics.  Here is the list of colors used:

B0000. B000, B01, B21, B23, B24, E00, E11, E31, E34, E35, R20, R22, YR20, YR31
