Happy Birthday Swap for Nikki!!!!

How good is this, I am swapping again, and ready to go.  Took 2 spots and one will be this card and the other a nautical theme with lighthouse....

She is a cute image from Penny Black, transparent and she is Mimi.

I watermarked the background pink with Perfect Medium, attached a ribbon (with pop can tab as buckle) to DP and attached it to the pink, then to the card.  Stamped the greeting and Mimi with Ancient Page Coal Black.  She is coloured with watercolour pencils, but not blended.  Panels are cut with Nestabilities, layered and embellished with some brads, then mounted onto the card.  This card is side opening and inside is trimmed with a little pink and the designer paper.

A very easy card, but a lovely bright card that is delightful for a birthday, young or old!!
