Mariposa birthday wishes

Hi there,

Been a busy week and the weather has been cold this weekend - but our old carport is now demolished, skip is full and frame is up for new, if temporary, structure. However, I did get in time to make this little birthday card:
This was made using an Aliciabel image, coloured with Promarkers, using the no-line colouring technique, as for my facebook group Crafting Techniques, and digital images from the Crafting Inspirations Issue 3 CD-Rom - the Frou-Frou and Camden Town collections. The image was cut with an X-cut large label nesting die, and the sentiment with a Nellie's nesting circles and florals die. All of these were printed onto pre-used paper or card. The backing paper had faint lines on it from when the printer was running out of ink and this has affected the texture of the printed panel, quite nicely I think. The others were just printed onto the opposite side of pre-used card (it was a package backer).

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Aliciabel #17 Spring
Card Mania #79 Spring
SSS #408
Fussy and Fancy #162 Female Birthdays
Digichooseday Tic-tac-toe (Wings/Nature/Sentiment)
Sweet Stampin - Pink and girlie
Die Cuttin Divas #262 Earth Day - recycled materials
PFP #342 Things with wings

 I also thought you might like to see my chilli and tomato seedlings!

And a height chart update - now at 69 hours!!

Thank you for looking,
Hugz Tinz
