Birthday Wishes from Annabelle

*waves* Happy Friday!! Thank goodness the weekend has arrived, I sure need a break. Almost been working full time shifts this week, and although it's good for the bank balance, it's not so good for the knees! I could cry! LOL. So I plan on standing up straight or lying down straight with as little bend in my knees as possible for the next two days!!

Aside from the drama in the knee compartment, Friday can only mean one other thing.. IT'S FABULOUS FRIDAY over at TIDDLY INKS!! I decided to use another gorgeous Annabelle, which I'd coloured up previous to her release, but who hadn't made it onto a card yet.

I coloured this cutie up with my neighbour in mind. It was her birthday at the end of August and she loves spending time in her garden, this little Annabelle was perfect!!

I kept the main panel pretty large, as I printed the digi out at over 4" - oh yeah, I went all out on this! ;) I used a mixture of papers from My Minds Eye, love that wooden one. I doodled some of the edges with my brown fineliner, wrapped some cute bakers twine around the design, and added a bunch of Prima and WOC flowery goodness to the bottom corner.

The sentiment is from an Amy R set, which I stamped in black ink to make it stand out from the blades of grass I flicked in. The whole image has been coloured using ProMarkers and FlexMarkers, I then added Diamon Stickles to some areas of the butterfly wings for that added sparkle! ;) Some little orange brads from Doodlebug finish the design off nicely.

I hope this has inspired you to break out those Tiddly Inks and create something cute today! I can't wait to see more of Annabelle around blogland, maybe you blog will be the one?

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
