A Missed Birthday

Hello!

I am more often late with my birthday cards rather than early, or on time...LOL. Here's a belated birthday card that I have just finished. I have made this a shaped easel card.






I love colouring this image of Farewell Tilda, but other than a good-bye card, I don't know what other occasion card I can use her for. So here, I am making myself see her as saying Hello instead. Does that work or not?

Farewell Tilda is from Magnolia's Bon Voyage Collection 2010.

And the Magnolia-licious on-line store is an excellent source of anything and everything Magnolia and Diana provides fabulous services. Not to forget also that many of the stamps are available in the mini version.


I have made a hidden panel underneath to write a personal message on.
