Who's Got The Candles?

Hi all!
I have a card to share with you today!
I made it for a friends Birthday!
Sorry the pics are a bit rubbish & I can't get more as the card has
already been sent!

The image I have used is a Digi's With Attitude, Grumpy Gretchen
I love that little lady! Unfortunately I can't give a link as 
DWA no longer seems to exist.
I've used this little lady before many times here's a photo of one of the 
other cards I made using her

The sentiment was created on the pc!
I used a 5"x5" square card blank.
The paper I used was from a candy I won, so I have no idea where it's from!
I matted & layered using coordinating green & purple card!

I coloured Gretchen using promarkers!
The corners were rounded with a corner punch!

I added some Mulberry paper flowers which I embossed & layered 
to add a bit of texture & dimension!
The centres are glittered brads!

I added a little double bow using ribbon from Lidl's Christmas wrapping collection!
I haven't got a photo but the inside of the card was simply decorated with a matt 
of green  purple card then a white piece to write on!
Thanks for stopping by!
