Birthday wishes for a friend

Hello my dears,  I want to share this card with you that I created for a dear scrap book friend.  I've used the sweet LOTV image and their gorgeous new 8x8 papers.  The image has been coloured with pencils and my flowers are all made using the gorgeous new die's from Marianne Designs. I will pop a list of ingredients at the bottom of my post with links where possible for you.

I'm in a bit of a rush today as I need to go finalise my holiday preparations for next week.  Oh I can't wait to get a little bit of sun and just relax by the pool with nothing to do except read, sip sangria and chill out.  

Challenges Entered:

Lili's Little Fairies Challenge: Seeing Double, either two separate stamps or one stamp with two characters.
