Celebrate your 70th Birthday in Style!

I made this card for my aunt's birthday and am entering  the Cardz 4 Gals 'Anyone for Cocktails' challenge.  I'm also entering the ABC Challenges 'V is for Varied (Anything Goes)', The Paper Shelter 'A Special Birthday Card' challenge and Sparkles Monthly Challenge 'Happy Birthday'.


Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Stamp: Bugaboo 'Cocktail Molly' precoloured digi stamp
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: Dark brown matt and white silk
Paper: Hot off the Press Cardmaker's Floral Ultimate Pack
Other: Wink of Stella, Computer generated sentiment 'Harrington' font

I resized the digi stamp, added the sentiment and printed it onto white silk card.  I coloured the hair and then trimmed the image to a square.  This was layered onto brown card, pink paper and brown card before being attached to the centre of the card blank.  To finish I highlighted Molly with a Wink of Stella.
