Small Birthday gift

This card won at Creative Inspirations!!!

One of my best friends had her birthday yesterday, and we are celebrating tomorrow with a "Girls Night Out". I'm a little worried, as last time we had a girl's night, it ended with toilet papering and running through the park in high heels! LOL. Oh, I am so lucky, as my friends are SO much fun, but too much wine (and a night without hubbies and kiddos), and we do get a bit crazy! LOL. We will see what kind of trouble we can get ourselves into tomorrow. hehehe
Anyway, I needed a card, so I wanted to create something special for her. Her fave colors are brown and pink, so here it is. Hope you like it, Darcy. Happy Birthday, my friend!!!!
I decided to make a twisted easel card. I LOVE these cards. They are so interesting, yet, so easy to make. Gotta LOVE it.
I used Prima Melody papers, and love the browns and pinks in this collection. The designs are so pretty. I teamed this paper up with Tilda with Small Gift from the Your So Special Collection. She is just precious, isnt she?!!!
Here is the front panel of the card. I used my cricut to cut the circle mats. Then I scrunched some lace behind the circle for added interest. I love the look of the white lace against the brown paper. I used two of my Doohickey Dies, tilda lace for the borders, and vintage tag for the sentiment. Gotta love those little dies, they are my favorite things right now!
The flowers are all Wild Orchid Crafts. I used white 25mm roses (which I sprayed with my Lindy's Stamp Gang Ramblin Rose Pink Starburst Stain spray), lime green cherry blossoms, 15mm light pink roses.
I colored up Tilda with copics.
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20, R32
Hair - E25, E31, E53, E50
Dress & Socks - R85, R83, R81, RV10, W1, W3
Shoes - E44, E43, E41, E40
Background - B0000, W5, W3, W1, W00

I cut Tilda out using my Lacey Circles Nestie die.
The inside panel was finished off simply. I used more of the design paper, a pink ribbon, and some more flowers. I used the vintage tag as my sentiment, and stamped my Happy Birthday Magnolia stamp. I also used the Star Border around the edges in Worn Lipstick Distress Ink to match the card colors.
